Dear Karl,

Great to know other people are looking for the same things I am. The MT500 is a heavier bike compared to the KLR250 which I own. A friend of mine had one but the Phoenix pay scandal forced him to sell it. I considered buying it but really didn't like it and it confirmed my love of the 250cc size machine, which I learned to ride on.

Finding one is like winning the lottery, having bought an imposter in my eagerness to own one I can tell you to buy what you can when you can regardless of how complete it is, parts do turn up.

I treasure my bike and every ride I get on it, it is expensive as far as the insurance goes.

If you get a KLR I have all the details of where the special parts came from.

Good luck with your search, you might find you are not alone, there is someone on kijiji with a standing advert looking for a Can-Am, no it isnt me.

Hi Robin,

thanks for the reply !

really interresting, I will tell you if I find one ... I already owned a MT500 but it was a big project (no engine and many missing parts), so I sold it

I need something that already works, no time for a restoration

if you see something, please tell me !!

thank you
