Rad,

I've been having a blast on my street titled supermoto 300exc.

Those extra 200cc's must be a hoot.

What kinda of range do you get with the 500 during street us?

That depends on how it's being ridden, but it's not good either way.
30 mpg if I'm riding the speed limit and no hooning. 25 mpg or less if I'm getting on it.

The stock tank is small to begin with -- 1.9 gallons -- plus it has no reserve, and I probably lost an 1/8th of a gallon of capacity pushing the bottom of the tank in to clear the spark plug and coolant lines. With all that being said I'd say that there's really only 1.25 gallons of usable fuel in the tank. If I'm street riding I carry oil with me (in a translucent Stabil container with markings) and I aim to stop for fuel every 30 miles. If I'm at the track I top off after every session.

Companies like IMS or Clarke make larger tanks, but that larger capacity comes in the sides and bottom of the tank. I assume that I'd have to do a LOT of reforming of the tank to *possibly* make it work. I have no plans to do that.

Nice project! CR5s broke pistons a lot in stock form. All three of the ones in my family years ago broke or cracked pistons. For light dirt work a forged wiseco fixed it. I think the root cause was Honda's poor head design--you may have fixed that with the cool head. Awesome to see the bike running!

I have a cracked wiseco here that proves otherwise.

Running the piston too long or with too much clearance kills the pistons. The head design isn't that bad.

Impressive work. Cutting and rewelding a frame takes skill and courage. You appear to have both.
Just how "streetable" is a modded CR 500 engine?

Lastly, what's it's wet weight?
