CR480 Mugen Kit Interest?
« on: October 31, 2017, 09:07:26 AM »
Thinking about selling my NOS ME480 kit. I know the pre-1981 stuff is really sought after, but is there very much interest in these kits?  Which sites would work best for posting it?

Thanks!  :)

The CR4800 is a very popular bike, but it looks like the Mugen kits for the Honda big bores is a limited market.  Is it because the 480 already has great power and potential for more with a few mods?  I also have not been able to find any articles on testing with this kit.  Anyone have info on what this kit offers?

Try ebay, or Vintage Bike Ads. if its really sought after i would think it will sell on there. Or maybe even the Elsinore forum/site.

chrome bore means less weight and better cooling for long moto s The power is just refined but you could match that with a port match and clean up.
