I combined the technology of the twin spar aluminum chasis with Honda's most potent 2-stroke engine. It was the CR500 that Honda should have made.
The 2000 500AF from Service Honda continues the tradition of carrying open class 2-stroke technology another step forward with a second generation twin spar aluminum frame and swingarm. “The best open bike EVER” by MX Racer (May 2000), and described as “almost like cheating by Dirt Rider (Feb 2000).
The 2001 500AF features a host refinements to enhance both engine and chassis performance.The accolades continued in as well with Transworld MX calling the 500AF “the best open class two- stroke ever available to the public” and also stating “We (got the) holeshot every moto we raced with the Service Honda (500AF), besting even the all-conquering four stroke Yamahas and KTMs.”
The 2002 500AF featured an all-new 3rd generation aluminum chassis for outstanding performance and the unparalleled power and lightweight of a 500cc 2-stroke engine. In 2002 Dirt Rider (March 2002) said the 500AF is “by far the best “production” two-stroke Open bike we’ve ever ridden.” Dirt Rider was impressed after just looking at their 500AF (February 2002) describing the 500AF as having “museum like quality.”
In 2003 the 500AF recieved a 39mm Kehin carburetor for improved mid range and top end power while retaining the legendary CR500 low end, improved airbox to air boot seal., new graphics and an available FMF spark arrestor.
The 2004 500AF was tested by Transworld Mx and found to be up to 4 seconds per lap faster than a fully modified 2004 CRF450 on the motocross track, they called this revelation "The Truth"! Added for 2004 were optional Enzo subtanks. Unique for this year was the very limited production 500AF Limited with gun metal rims and billet parts. Only 20 of these special 500AF's were built.
Note: In 2001 Honda Motor Co. dropped the production of their CR500R completely. Through a unique arrangement with Honda we (Service Honda) assemble the CR500 engines in our facility to exacting Honda standards.

Nothing tests a motorcycles' strength, durability and quality like launching it over 200 ft. thousands of times. Robbie's and Trigger's bike uses no special reinforcement in the frame and has had no failures. You may never jump your 500AF for a world record but it is nice to know the 500AF is ready when you are.
A bike becomes a legend by dominating the competition in every motocross and off road situation. The Service Honda 500AF adds another chapter to the legend that is the Service Honda 500AF.
The 500AF utilizes a 4th generation chassis, refined suspension and an aggressive look. The 500AF combines the fierce power of the CR500 engine and the advanced features of the latest chassis resulting in the most powerful and versatile off road motorcycle today.
The 500AF’s unique combination of unequaled power, nimble handling, stability and durability makes it ideally suited to a wide variety of riding conditions. Roosting your buddies in the dunes, blasting through the desert, cutting through challenging trails or punishing berms at the local motocross track, the 500AF performs flawlessly in all conditions.
Many areas require the use of spark arrestor silencers that are noise emission certified. These silencers are available as an option. Unique to the motorcycle world, the easy to control power of the 500AF is undiminished by these regulatory requirements.
The 500AF is not only functionally superior, it is also downright stunning with slim bodywork accenting the massive cylinder. Throw in anodized black rims and rear sprocket and the 500AF is not only pretty looking, it is pretty mean looking.
