    Howdy. I'm about to begin some sort of bypass operation on my 1982 Silverwing to replace the camchain/tensioner and mechanical seal, but here's my quandary: my stator works just fine, so should I replace it because what the heck, I'm already in there? It's not the money I'm worried about, it's...

    Some of you may recall that I got a 1978 CX running that had been sat for 30 years. I was concerned about the noise it was making and after having a finger through the inspection port, I discovered the manual tensioner was sat in its lowest position. Then I pushed the cam chain...that was...

    The current project (CX500 79 CDI) I am undertaking seems to have become a little more involved than I had originally thought it would and I have now dropped the engine in order to check the cam chain and replace the mechanical seal. Whilst it wasn't too hard to do, I do have a few questions...

    Hey all! I am new here, as I am also pretty new to motorcycling in general. I know there are plenty of posts in regards to a triple bypass but none of them really help me decide what i should do.. I have owned my 1980 CX500D for almost a year now, and have learned quite a bit mechanically on...

    Hello, I'm in the middle of a stator swap on my 1982 Cx500. The engine is out, and I'm trying to get the rear casing off, but it seems to be stuck. The water pump cover has been removed, along with the impeller, and all of the rear casing bolts are out. The rear casing is loose, and can move...

    Hi all, I have a 1979 or 1980 CX500 (Not the custom model) and whilst I've got the engine apart, I've been convinced I should replace the stator, mostly because it looks like some numpty has damaged the wiring from it by pinching it with a bolt. I found this one on eBay, is this everything I...

    Hi all! I'm doing a quadruple bypass, I've been looking and can't seem to find a detailed post (with pictures) where the g47 is replaced with a new g47. Everyone is doing the g8 and replacing the CDI it seems.. I already purchased an aftermarket g47 but it's a little different looking than the...

    Hey folks, I am currently finishing up my first triple bypass on my 82 custom and all seems to be going well.

    I'm Nick, from Sydney, Australia. I've owned this red CX for around six months now, and have put around 5,000km on it, for a total of around 62,500km. I'd always intended to make it into a bit of a project, but it's been my only transport, so time to get it of the road has been limited...

    Well the seasons have changed. Hail came down today along with all the leaves on the trees in pretty much all of Ontario and I really can't see a better time to commence triple bypass surgery. I have ordered most parts needed but seem to be stuck finding a cam chain (14401-MA1-013). Are there...

    The parts list(s) and somewhat different information seem to be scattered throughout the sites and the wiki page needs some formatting help(imo) so I'm going to compile a linear parts list here and am looking for some feedback if this is correct or not(I'm not affiliated with partzilla, but I...

    Hi I'm considering doing a triple bypass. If I do not need my Cam Chain or my Stator to be replaced at the moment, I won't do it (money issues). But if I really need it replaced, I will. Here are some pictures I'm not sure where this washer came from, I found it while I was removing the...

    Hello all, I am putting together the parts for a TRIPLE BYPASS on one of my cx500t. While OEM CAM CHAINS can still be found, they are 4-5 times the price of a non-OEM one say from Dave Silvers. In general, like most, I would always prefer OEM. But given the crazy pricing, I am...
