    Gear change issue

    I’ve posted about this problem on the US site and thought I’d ask on here too. To cut along story short, I have a problem with getting the bike to change gear. The gear lever is not returning to its correct position to enable the next gearchange. The current state of affairs is that the engine is out of the frame with the rear case unbolted. Everything appears to be in its correct position. With the rear case removed , I can go up & down the gears as expected. With the rear case on, gear changes upwards are good but downward changes are not. For example it will change down from 5th to 4th but the gear lever doesn’t return to enable a further downward change. The claw arm on the mechanism is not returning to its correct position. If you move the gear lever by hand to its position you then hear the claw arm moving back to where it should be. I ve tried it unbolted , bolts hand tight , half tight , correct torque & also a new oem gasket. So I reckon something is binding but can’t work out what or how. Anybody else come across this,it is driving me nuts, had the rear case on & off probably a dozen times now.

    CX500 custom USA import ignition coils ?

    I used some cheap eBay ones, had em on a few years now no issues other than had to drill a bit of flat plate to line up the mounting holes as the new coils were a lot shorter than original

    Thanks Lawrie!! You will find a buyer....if you want the word put out elsewhere im happy to help! Yes that camchain was allowed to get stupidly long....but what actually saved it is the way the tensioner broke believe it or not it was taking up extra slack!

    Good luck Lawrie with the sale, shame it has to go. If you do sell and deliver at the National, keep in touch because my son is coming down from Glasgow- not yet sure by car or bike- if car he could give you a lift back. Otherwise, we are flying out from Manchester airport, Sunday evening so could give you a lift to either train or airport. Mike

    £630 for that CX500EC? That seems like a very good price. Hope the resto goes well. Please post some updates. Cheers, Will
  18. My CX500EC is missing the little button (knob) on top of the trip meter reset stalk, part 37204-MC7-611 or 37204-MC7-612 (see: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Honda-NOS-CX500-TC-CX650-T-1982-83-Clock-Meter-Knob-37461-MC7-612-H19b/392291928592?hash=item5b566bca10:g:y6UAAOSwTmxc0HRc&frcectupt=true) This piece is gonna cost about £20 postage! Anyone know of UK or EU stock or otherwise a cheaper source? Also I will need the 2.3 x 8 screw (part 90600-mc7-611) for the knob - anyone know of a source? Failing that, I can probably track down a screw which will fit for this but does anyone know what the thread pitch is? Thanks, Will
  19. .... On Sunday, in fact, and on my driveway not the shed ... So ... F&R brakes needed a right old clean up after a few wet and salty weeks back in November 2018. Nothing too bad, but they received a thorough in-situ clean and are working pretty well now, no binding or scraping. As part of my clean up I replaced the rubber caliper boots (part 45133-166-016, see: https://www.kfm-motorraeder.de/cms/en/genuine-spare-parts/honda-spare-parts?itemid=45133166016) BUT I could not get these to fit properly, the bottom of the boot would go into the requisite groove on the caliper but then it was too tight to slide the pin through; the pin either pushed the boot out of place or just ripped the boot. The boots I was using were aftermarket rubber boots, seemed pretty good quality and cost about £2.50 each. Anyone else had similar experiences? Shall I order some OE boots from Honda? Will that make a difference? Cheers, Will

    Selling my GL700

    I have decided to sell my GL700, I hope to come to Derby on it and will make this my last trip..It is a case these days that the MInd is willing but the Flesh is weak. If anyone at the Rally wishes to purchase it then I can find some other way home. I am asking offers over £2500, Peetman sold his in similiar condition and got £2750 ,if I have got that wrong I am sure Pete will correct me.
  21. Finally back out and about on my CX500EC. She's ticking along very nicely. Brakes as rubbish as ever but at least the engine does a good job with brake assist. Rear brake has had an extensive in-situ clean, the front brakes also had similar treatment. Carbs need some tuning and probably balancing. Having ridden an NC700S for the last few months the CX does feel rather heavy but much more visceral. My CX is now on dry-weather duties only; I'll aim to do 3,000 miles ish per annum and keep her mechanically sound but she won't be show condition; she's a usable and in-use classic. Perhaps I'll make it to one of the club or region meets .... Cheers, Will

    Clearing out - Rads

    I have 3 ZAB/C type rads I'm disposing of as I'm going off brand for a rad. 2 definitely have leaks, one doesn't appear to but I havent fully pressure tested it just filled it with water they all look well used They may be useful for someone to send off for repair/recore if theirs is getting shabby failing that I'll weigh them in. All FOC just collect or cover any P&P costs
