Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

crash bobbins

Post by geewhizz on Mon 28 Jan 2013, 11:52 pm

I've seen a cb with crash bobbins/sliders attached on the rear fairing where the top of the suspension is pinned? seems like a good place to put them as i rarely carry a pillion...has anyone done this or know where i could order it from? also was thinking about possibly getting some for the engine and forks? again , anyone know where to buy them? They seem to vary a lot in price on ebay but i cant see any specifically for the cb...was wandering if they are faily universal?

thanks, i know i've been too lazy to solve this myself. A brief search before threw up r and g bobbins which i feel are over-priced in general, i am looking for an alternative which costs less and would fit my cb5. Been working too much to do the simple task of measuring the bolt thread size and potential size of the bobbin/ bolt length required. I endeavour to do it soon and post my conclusions.

Yeah I had a look at them too but i want to explore some of the cheaper bobbins i've found on ebay (non of which are specified for a cb5)

eg something on these sort of lines would be interesting for exchanging with the upper suspension bolt ...

as said before need a spare minute to work out bolts/lengths/threads ....
