I did a lot of interneting and found a little info. there were only 3 or so built by Yamaha France to compete agents the lc cr500 and kx500 in the international supermoto races (+-1980). the reason is that the air cooled wr500 and yz490 would start over heating and loose power at the end of the race. Then start to fall back in the pack.

I would love one, the smile one you face is a price worth paying for not feeling your hands for 4 hours after an hour ride.

Ooo and apparently these factory bikes made 80hp when the factory cr500 made between 60 and 70 hp.
