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

needle bearing

Post by cuddlydave38 on Thu 01 Jan 2015, 5:31 pm

hello does any one have a spare clutch release lever needle bearing for a CB500 1996 as I have looked at the clutch cover and the needle bearing that the release lever goes through needs replacing and I am not sure that it can be bought separate.Thanks

Looking here:

I can't see the bearing you mention (I assume it is inside the cover where the clutch rod goes through) so I guess it isn't available.

If that's the case then it might be best to get a cover off ebay or a breaker.

Bear in mind that CBF500 covers go straight on (and look better, more modern) should one be more available. The bearing isn't a seperate part, I just checked the parts book.

If the bearing is removable as a unit, then just about any seal & bearing factor could get you a replacement cheaply.

True. You just need to work out how to get it out...
