Hi I'm in need of a front fender for gl500 preferably maroon but any color will do as long as its all there even cracked and or scratched is fine. About 1/3rd of mine was shattered at some point in its hard life.

Hi everyone.
I think I need the CX500 *NON CUSTOM) footpegs. I THINK my "new" cx 500 is a custom, I want my pegs to sit further back than they do currently. I'm guessing I'll need to modify my shifter and brake pedal too. My front pegs extend forward and down. I'd like a more sporty position. But I'm just over 6ft tall so hopefully this will still work ok.

I made a new member thread.
I’m sure I have a custom now.

I’m in need of

cx500 foot pegs and shift lever, brake lever. I have nice pegs but my brackets put the pegs in a weird spot. move thought about swapping my pegs to opposite sides. I’ll then need to modify the shifter and brake. I’m not sure I want to lose rear braking power though.

I also need a rear brake return spring. Mine is not there.
Thanks everyone

Looks like my bike has had something chew up the bearings. Boo. I found one main bearing, NOS on ebay so at least I can fix the worse of them. If anyone happens to have one in good shape I would be eternally grateful if I could purchase it from you. I figure it may be easier to buy the whole end-cap just to get the bearing, but it is hard to judge them online, bit of a crapshoot.

How is your crankshaft? I would bet it is trashed too and needs replaced. It is probably best to find a complete motor in running condition to replace your bad engine.

Crank looks fine, whatever it was that went through, a chunk of something got past the filter I guess, it was harder than tin but softer than steel. Copper maybe.

Ha okay I found one in stock on some German parts website I had to translate to read. Ordered it. Hope it arrives. Worst case I do have one bike that is an ongoing project I can pilfer parts from, but no guarantee that bearing is any better.
