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

CB500S Headlight Bulb Clip

Post by smace78 on Sun 28 Dec 2014, 6:46 pm

I somehow have managed to lose my clip/bracket that holds the bulb in place on my headlight, does anyone have a spare for the CB500S 2002 or know a place I can get one from. ebay has nothing.

Thanks

I've got the naked CB500 so have no reference, is it a sprung clip that holds the bulb in? If so you can make a replacement out of a wire coat hanger or a large paper clip.

Edit: Welcome Shaun! Very Happy

Further edit: It's not even offered as a part on Lings so I think making your own is the best (and cheapest!) option. If you need a pattern I'm sure one of the chaps with a 500s can measure the clip for you.

Unfortunately it is not the wire one but a round plastic mold that you rotate to lock in place. I tried some string but the bulb just wobbles all over the place.

I have been looking for hours trying to find the one I lost but still no luck. I might just have to source a new headlight/fairing.

Oh flip, like the bit pictured between 2 & 4 in this pic? It's not available as a spare part that I can see, could you wrap it with a length of wire to secure it?
