I think any CX 78-81 will work,,no GL's though and not the 82 CX. It must be from a CDI type bike.

I just stumbled upon this because I'm looking for a 1980 CX500C Ignition Switch (or a Lock Set). Why is a GL switch not an option? According to the Honda parts microfiche, they have the same part number (35100-415-017). I'd like to find what I need without buying parts that I'll never be able to use. Thanks.
