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

A CCT normally costs about 60 quid, as I recall. You can fit it yourself, especially if your hands are small enough to get in behind the engine.

it is quite fiddly but i have managed to take it out, i was told that if you loosen the two bolts
and re tighten them up it stops the rattle i did this and after a few days the rattle returned.

Some people have tried taking it off and dunking it in a bucket of oil overnight then refitting to the bike: I'm not sure this works too well but it might be worth a go.

If all this fails you will have to replace it; it is a common failing of the CB500.

Any more old failed CCTs out there not wanted ? I'll pay postage. I'd like to take a few more apart to see what the cause of failure is - whether it is always the same reason or not.
