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

Price- £875. I live near Lichfield, Staffs, and can be reached on - 07530 533 882, or 01543-373108.

Pleasure doing business with you John. What an interesting chap you are. If not for the 160 mile journey ahead of me, I would have stayed longer to admire your bikes some more.

As expected, she reformed faultlessly on the way home.

I didn't expect it to be so, but there's more wind noise in my helmet than on my naked CB500. It must be the way the wind travels over the screen. I may well try the larger screen that you kindly included.

It will be good to have something to fettle over the winter. Everyone should have a pair of CB5s!

Thanks again,
John

You're not going to polish the washers...............................again ? Laughing
And what joy, I see chrome pivot covers in place. Go on, admit it. That's what swung the deal for you.

Doh! You're not going to believe this, John!

About a week ago, Sherri said she's going to sell her 1999 CB500 SX and I said I'd get in touch with you to see if you knew anyone who's looking for one!

That'll teach me to hang about! LOL!

(Although that does mean that I too will have a pair!)

In response to sullivj I don't know if the S models have any adjustment on the windscreen for height or angle but it is probably worth experimenting.

I found that the naked cb500 had a lot of wind noise and, more worrying for me, was the strain on my arms at 70 mph - a few miles on a motorway and I found myself involuntarily slowing down.  I solved this by fitting a small screen, smaller than that on the S model, but is adjustable.  This cured the arm strain and much reduced the wind noise.  The noise then came down further when I changed from a Caberg to Shoei helmet.
