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

Replacement bits following a little off

Post by Factoryrsvr on Sat 23 Apr 2016, 10:37 am

Hi,

Would be grateful if anyone could point me in the right direction of the following to help me put my red CB500S - R plate I would be very grateful:


  • Right-hand side fairing or whole fairing
  • Handle bars, forks , levers, clocks, reservoirs etc are all ok somehow.
  • Right hand indicator
  • Foot brake lever


Considering the speed we went down, it crashed very well and started first time when I got it back on its wheels. Any help ontrackingn these parts down would be gratefully appreciated.

Cheers

I can help with a rear brake lever, £10 posted.
 I may have an indicator too, I'll check on that tomorrow.

Cheers. I managed to bend the brake lever back into shape in a vice  Laughing Looks like I just need one side of fairing. Has anyone ever replaced the handlebars? Is it as simple as unbolting everything and putting it all back on the new ones?

You'll be lucky to get the left grip off without slicing it. The cables & wiring don't have enough slack for the switch & lever assemblies to slide off while the handlebars are still bolted on, you'll have to unbolt them & move them from one side to the other while you slide each side off (depends how bent your bars are, I suppose Wink). If you fit pattern bars, you'll probably 'lose' the locating holes for the switches, so you'll either have to drill some, or cut the locating pips off the switches & make sure the screws are really tight. Can't think of anything alse, but maybe someone else can?

I have easily removed grips with a screwdriver and spraying degreaser, 
the way it is shown in this video:




If you go for an aluminum bars and drill holes in them do not measure the holes location from the steel bars. If you do so the throttle grip will stick out  and you might have trouble fitting bar ends, as the original ones do not fit the smaller aluminum bar internal diameter and many bar ends for alloy bars do not allow overlapping  with the throttle tube.

If you're still looking I've got a set of clocks available, handlebars and some fairing pieces if they're any good to you.
