Hi everyone. I have just joined as I am now starting torebuild my 1979 cx500 custom USA 32,000 on clock. I bought the bike a couple ofyears ago, she was running - just….. butlow on compression, leaking petrol and blowing fuses from what I recall.Ah....a project thought I !!!!!!
I stripped the engine down and had it honed and valves etc done. Whatother parts should I renew as a matter of course while it is in bits?
If anyone could just list the main things then that would be great so I can start ordering and probably waiting. Thanks

Thanks nolimitz, that's a good start and I will get ordering. Are all the O-rings supplied in the full engine gasket kit or are they bought separately? Thanks
