1979, Honda CX500C
Hi, I have a ‘79 CX500C with the reverse com star wheel. It’s covered less than 25k miles but the internal dimensions of the drum are at about 158mm not far short of the 161mm service limit.
I’m only checking this as my brake performance is absolutely horrendous bordering on non-existent after trying I’ve read. Last I replaced the shoes and after running them in I sanded them to fit the shape of the drum and bedded them with little to no effect.
Does anyone know the specs of the drum as new so I can check I’m getting as good as possible when purchasing a replacement wheel?
Any help would be most appreciated
