I have brought my 1976 CB500T back to life after sitting for a number of years. Almost a complete rewire and a little of this and that and it runs fairly well. I had noticed some difficulty in using the electric starter, it was engaging but not spinning the motor over on an intermittent basics. I really diagnosed the problem when the points cover was off hearing the starter turn over and seeing no movement on the points themselves. Of course after getting it fired and warmed up using the kicker the starter seems more prone to operate normally. I am presuming it is the starter clutch even before pulling the cover to check if the chain will spin in both directions. I have watched a couple of videos on the replacement procedure and read a number of threads. I have ordered the flywheel/rotor 16 mm puller bolt, and looking for a good source on the replacement kit. Any suggestions or input from you guys who have been there and done this before, am I putting the cart before the horse with my diagnosis, and if nothing else wish me luck.........
