AFAIK there is only one bolt used in the manual tensioners.They are very hard to find new.



You can grab some numbers from parts fiche and check around but a lot of these parts fiche,even if they appear to have the bolts,usually don't.

Over the years I've bought some basket case engines and CX stuff of Ebay that has given me loads of spares for my two CX like these bolts,cam chain tensioners,starters etc.If you ever see an crapped out engine going cheap snag it for spares.

I've had four of these bikes, a '79 CX500 Standard, an '82 CX500 Custom, an '81 GL500, and an '82 GL500. They all take the same cam tensioner bolt. One of them stripped out however and I had to repair it with a helicoil insert.
