You're talking about 2 different things...I think. Service Honda builds a CR500AF....a crf450 frame with a new 500 motor in it. The last year for a factory 500 from Honda was 2001. Service Honda makes a special construction bike, not a factory Honda. They still make them, and I'm sure they will continue to make them as long as new 500 motors are availible. Going rate is 10k.
I'm talking about regular honda, not the factory race bikes.
I'm also talking about Service Honda, which makes specialty bikes like the CR500, CRF250R/X junior, and i think they also make the KX500.

"CR500AF and KX500AF" The" CR500AF" is currently in a "CRF250" chassis and the "KX500AF" is in a" KXF450" chassis
Your post is confusing with out the "AF"

Service Honda uses "AF" model designation "aluminum frame"
So I'm confused? How does asking if service Honda still makes the cr 500 confuse you? Do they make one in general is my question. Not with a specific frame or anything.

Im also wondering if the cr500af is green sticker? I read in an old issue of dirt rider that a 2006 is green sticker.
The CR500AFX is California Green sticker legal, because the bike is built in a CRF250X frame, which is green sticker legal
