Hello all,

I have a 1978 CX500E with magstar rims that are cracking. I need to get new ones but I've had a hard time finding out what's compatible between the models (cx500a-e?) and years. Does anyone have a compatibility matrix for wheels (mostly rear). Quite urgent please, as it's how I get around.

Thanks

He was looking to see if it was actually a CX500E ('83 or '84, not sold in North America), or a 1978 CX500 (Standard, which it is), or something else. Except for the Eurosports, Turbos, and 650s, all the CX wheels are interchangeable (though the rears may differ in size).

Interesting... the title says 1978, but you say the cx500e is 83-84 and not sold in the us... but the side of the engine clearly says "CX500E"... maybe the engine was put onto an older body?
