Need some help with my cr500 linkage bolts.
« on: April 10, 2019, 07:14:02 PM »
Hey guys was wondering if anyone with a cr500 linkage could help me out with the specific bolt I need that goes through the swingarm and the linkage... The microfiche for a 2001 cr500 shows bolt number 34 (15x202).
The threads are clearly stepped down in diameter from the rest of the bolt and that's what I need but the OEM bolt is 7.95 inches long and I only need a bolt thats 4.5 inches long give or take from what it looks like to me.

For any of the guys with cr500 linkage can you take a look and see what your bolt is like or if anyone knows where I can source one I would really appreciate it!

I donít have a CR 500 link but I can help...

There are a few of those bolts on eBay.  Another option is to contact Steve Buchinsky.  Heís a member here.  He sells a CR500 link bolt kit.

Thanks for the help so far Croat1. I tried to contact Steve on instagram with no luck and I don't have a facebook so the only other hope is for him to see this. Also can you drop a link to the bolt I need on ebay? I cant seem to find it.

I know Steve isn't taking any new "custom" work. But I'm fairly certain he is still producing those CR500 bolt kits, as well as other stuff like shrouds, a-arms etc..

Just wanted to say thanks again guys for helping me out! I got my bolts from Steve today and just got done rebuilding my linkage this past week so my shock and linkage should work perfect now!
