    CX500 & CX650 Turbo Forum
    just throwing this out there. I had a rusted bolt snap off and when I tried to extract it the boss gave way on my cover. Probably could have it welded and tapped but i am thinking there should be a few of these around as they are not a sought after part generally. There are a few on ebay...
