  2. Fork Spring Guide

    Frame, Suspension and Steering
    Pulled apart my fork to do service and one of the fork spring guides (honda part #51509-286-000) is disintegrated. Does anyone know where you can find these or something else you can use to replace it. I considered wrapping the spring in rubber shrinkwrap to provide protection, but not sure...

  4. Early? CB77 Fork Disassembly Tips Appreciated

    Frame, Suspension and Steering
    Just getting started on a resto-mod of a 1963 CB77 and need disassembly help with the forks...specifically the lower chrome cover that fits over the top of the fork tubes. I have the ones with 4 small holes in the chrome covers. A friend who did a '67 said a strap wrench would do the trick but...
  5. direction of the front axles/fork tube lower pinch cap - SL350 K0/K1

    Frame, Suspension and Steering
    Currently working on an 70' SL350_k0 with the 2 bolt axle pinch system under each fork tube. (33mm set up, possibly same as CL/CB of those years?) There is a thinner side and thicker side to the axle cap. My manuals are vague :o When the cap is squeezing the front wheel/axle, does the...
  6. fork gaiter cb500t

    Frame, Suspension and Steering
    Anyone found a fork gaiter that fits the 500t? I've bought a couple now, and neither fit very well. I realise that fork boots were not OEM on this bike so getting a good fit is a bit hit and miss, but having shelled out to get my forks rechromed I want to give them some protection. Thanks in...
  7. I'm playing the "Which Part is Bent?" game again...forks or triple tree on a CB450sc

    Frame, Suspension and Steering
    I'm playing the "Which Part is Bent?" game again...forks or triple tree on a CB450sc Hello all, A while back I had some issues with a bent frame up near the head tube of my 83 nighthawk 450. 8 months and almost $600 later that problem is solved. The guy did an awesome job at straightening and...
  8. Honda Fork Dimension & Specs Thread

    Non-Model Specific Honda Twin Topics
    I had this posted in a more specific forum, but it doesn't seem to be getting any visibility there, so I figured it might do better out here in the open. It probably has more interest to smaller bike owners anyway. As I am building my project from the ground-up, I am collecting individual...
  9. 350 SL K1 fork dampening adjustment

    Frame, Suspension and Steering
    A forum newb here, an old school 350 boy. I'm finishing up a restored K1 SL and doing road ready dial in. Testing 1-2-3. I won't be doing any motocross or canyon jumps with this bike,but mostly 40mph back roads and two tracks, occasional pavement @ 55. So said... The front forks on his bike...
  10. Anyone recognize this part?

    Miscellaneous Discussion
    This little bracket (circled in the attachment) has been on the top of my 1973 CL350 since I got it. I've been unable to figure out what it's for, though. It's not hurting anything but I'm curious about it. Does anyone have any ideas?
  11. Fork Ears?

    Frame, Suspension and Steering
    Can anyone tell me definitively whether fork ears (they provide headlight bucket mounting to forks) from a 72 CL350 K4 will fit my 73 K5? They are both chrome, and they sure look the same, but Honda's microfiche shows different part numbers for the 2 years. There are no new ones available...
