    I'm sorry I know there is probably a million threads like this, but I was wondering what is the easiest front end to swap with an 81 Honda Cx500. I don't know whether I have a CX500C or CX500 D. Any fast way to tell? Its been cut and stripped a lot. I have read that CBR's are easier to do...

    Hi guys, thanks for a great forum! I love this place. Now, I had to change my brake lever, and bought a new one from a mechanic. It should be original, but the fit was very tight. So, I tried to gently pry it into the slot, and suddenly the top part of the mount snapped off! No good. So I am...
