    Looking at that diagram in the fiche, I have a couple of questions. For part #4, it indicates two required, as pictured. But for part #3, it shows four required, though the pic shows only two. Is that a mistake? If not, where would the other two go?

    Also, just how involved is it to replace those parts? Or another way to ask is how likely am I to screw something up and not get everything back together again? Does it really require pretty much dismantling the whole handlebar and tree assembly as it appears to?

    Fiche is in error, 2 of each part number needed.
    Pretty simple to replace. Remove #'s 11, 12 & 13, lift assembly up and change the rubbers. Reinsert and tighten. No need to remove the bars from the holders, #2, unless you run out of cable movement room.

    Good to know. lThanks. I may have a follow-up question or two when I take a closer look when the bike comes out of hibernation in the Spring.

    Thanks again for your thoughts. Great stuff.
    You should feel what's it like after a 600 mile ride, Ensenada Baja to Santa Clara CA. Every part of you is vibrating hours later [IMG class=inlineimg]https://www.hondatwins.net/forums/images/smilies/icon_question.gif[/IMG]lol:[IMG class=inlineimg]https://www.hondatwins.net/forums/images/smilies/icon_lol.gif[/IMG]

    Where can someone buy these #3, #4 & #11??? Mine were completely hardened with age and completely unsafe - I did find a way to tighten them up, but I would rather replace them correctly!

    You can try partzilla. I have also been able to find parts on Ebay by typing the part # into ebay search bar.

    Best way to find that out is to search by part number for each part, provided at the link Jim posted. Here are some quick search results for each part number, one of the rubber mounts is available at a few different places (one of which has the washers as well so maybe combine shipping)

    https://www.partzilla.com/product/honda/90535-292-000

    https://www.partzilla.com/product/honda/53133-385-000

    https://www.amazon.com/HONDA-53133-3.../dp/B00I87IQ7Q

    And you could also check those part numbers at David Silver Spares as they don't show up in Google searches very often but many times have the parts

    Also, check your local Honda dealer if you have one. As mentioned above, all you need is the part number from the fiche. I ordered a few parts from my local dealer and I'll pick them up to avoid shipping costs.

    I was also able to get some honda parts from the local marina because there is some crossover in parts from Honda's outboard motors.

    That would be a valuable cross reference. The only part I've ever been able to reference successfully to Honda Marine was the cork fuel cap seal from my old CM400, it was used on outboards, scooters and even Honda generators.
