    A list of Quick Reference items for new and old users.



    NEW INFO

    Engine Oil--- Use 10w-40 or 15w-40 non-synthetic oils or your clutch will slip.

    Most prefer to use Rotella 15w-40 as their brand of choice. The

    newer oils have additives that create problems with a wet clutch.

    Group Discount on Honda Parts.

    http://globalcxglvtwins.forumlaunch....php?f=17&t=536

    "For International shipments, Discount Honda adds $28 per order to domestic shipping rates and ships by USPS Priority mail. Shipping rates are the same for Canada as they are for India. It may not be economical to ship small orders internationally. If buying from Canada and the order is a small part; call John to see if he can give a better rate on the shipment.

    PostPosted: 16 May 2008 14:49



    Hey. You don't even have to sacrifice a socket.... just use a large nut (I'm talking about 2" across the flats) and drill 4 equally spaced holes at 41mm centres 4mm diameter into one face. Or make them exactly the same size as the 4 holes in the bearing retainer. You then use 4 short pieces of 4mm good steel (I used short pieces of the shank of a broken 4mm drill0 and Loktite them into the holes, so they stick out about 4 or 5 mm.

    You can then simply use a large spanner or better still, put the new 'special tool' in a vice, pins up, and place the wheel on top of that retainer down. You then just turn the spanner or turn the wheel and the retainer comes out.

    It seems that Honda some times centre punched the retainer right on the thread line to stop it unscrewing if the bearing 'grabbed' once worn. That makes it a little difficult to unscrew them and may even damage the soft retainer. If yours has these centre punch marks, I suggest you CAREFULLY drill them a smidgeon with a very small drill, to remove the deformed metal.

    Original decal repros, anything from one to a full set including all the original warning labels:



    http://www.bdesigns.ca/



    They include a really nice set of info as to how to apply them if you're painting them in which, of course, is the proper way.
    1979 CX500 Custom - restored to almost original condition. I'm waiting to get strong enough to return to work so I can finish all the painting prep and priming, then I'll take the tank and sides out to Old Okie's shop where the bike is and shoot the color, clear, apply decals and final clear then polish it to a perfect gloss.



    I also have the tendency to misspell or add things later to a post so check again a bit later.

    Engine Oil--- Use 10w-40 or 15w-40 non-synthetic oils or your clutch will slip.

    Most prefer to use Rotella 15w-40 as their brand of choice. The

    newer oils have additives that create problems with a wet clutch.
