The OptiFlosm CR500 “phi” HV Impeller, another must have item for your Honda CR500 Engine!
There are only 3 ways to add extra cooling to your CR500:
- Bigger frontal radiator area. Not going to happen in the confines of the CR500 radiator shrouds and thicker radiators only slightly delay the inevitable
- Cooler air going through the radiator. Strictly subject to the air temperature your riding in.
- More Coolant Flow. This is where MSV Racing’s “phi” High Volume Impeller works its magic!
Rigorous flow bench testing, real-world MX race testing, and top Outlaw Kart racers validate that the MSV Racing’s “phi” impeller dramatically improves your CR500’s H2O cooling and pumping performance over OEM, Frank’s MX, Mino and AS3 impellers, totally dominating the competition!
Machined from Premium Alcoa 7075 T6-511 Aluminum ensures durability and stress resistance, over a life time of use.
Honda CR500 “phi” HV Impeller from MSV Racing Power Sports
The “phi” impeller vanes are computer designed using “Golden Ratio” proportions based on the CR500’s H2O pump housing. This, as well as very close tolerances between impeller and housing, offers a 1.5 avg. GPM more coolant flow along the entire rpm curve. The increase in flow reduces the cycle time between the engine and the radiators providing more adequate heat removal. The overall benefit is lowering the engine temperature by up to 20*F over the competition’s impellers.
Also, the high efficiency of the “phi” Impeller FREES horsepower your engine is already making. Dyno testing showed up to 2.12hp FREED over a 1750 RPM range vs the competitors!
Remember, horsepower/RPM = heat. Preventing your engine from heat soak is the KEY to building and maintaining maximum engine performance. The more efficient the engine’s cooling system, the more heat (horsepower) it can handle.
Whether you’re racing Outlaw Karts, GNCC, Hill Climb, Sand Drags, Super Moto, or MX. Railing tight single track, sand dunes or just love the latest enhancement for your CR500. Trust MSV Racing’s “phi” Impeller to help put you at the head of the pack!
(Look at the pics and checkout the data. No other CR500 parts company will show you the proof they are the best. It’s the MSV Racing way!)
(Mino, Frank’s MX and AS3 are the SAME over-sized impeller with spacer)
NOTE* To ensure ease of installation each impeller comes with H2O pump cover gasket set (2 gaskets) for a seamless install.

Billy Brown –
Fantastic fit and finish. Easy install. This guy does great work to improve the sore spots on our beloved big bores.

A must have upgrade for anyone planning to race their CR500. My 1985 CR500 had the common water pump corrosion issue so I used to opportunity to upgrade the impeller since the original impeller was unusable. Noticed cooler temps and also felt like the motor gain some extra power.

This impeller will make trail riding my CR500r so much nicer w/o having to be at Plus size RPM’s for cooling. It is not only well engineered but has been tested on the bench & road to prove it’s significant benefits.

So glad Jason made this product. It should keep my hillclimb motors nice and cool

Awesome product, love it, noticeable difference in cooling, I’m running 250 radiators on my 500 conversion. This impeller made the difference in cooling while riding it in soft sand, was getting hot, now it’s staying in comfortable heat range.

Haven’t yet installed but holding the impeller I can tell it’s high quality! Super happy with product and can’t wait to cool down my 500!

Can’t wait to try it out.

Got the trifecta of exhaust flange, water pump impeller and case saver. Excellent products and could not be happier. What a class act this company is!

Worth every penny. My 500 AF conversion didn’t like the smaller 250r radiators. Installed this kit and now it doesn’t overflow a drop of coolant (even riding in Mojave). Wasn’t sent the gaskets by accident and owner promptly sent me out the gaskets as soon as I called in. Talk about a great product backed by great customer service! Would highly recommend!

Super trick part, shame no one can see it due too water pump cover
Kart Racer (store manager) –
I installed the impeller and GEN II high flow elbow on my outlaw kart. Jason said most kart racers are seeing 10*f cooler with just the impeller and not sure what additional cooling the high flow elbow will provide. At the track I saw 20*f cooler running! We will now start leaning the jetting to pick up even more power.

still have single track overheating problems with Rekluse clutch. I’ve adjusted for minimal slipping and try to ride at higher rpm.

Did the MSV Racing impeller help with the overheating vs OEM impeller?

New impeller quality is great, haven’t had a chance to see how much cooler motor temp is.
