DSS sells them £13 pattern obviously and may be suspect. Or at least he did, someone may have just bought 2 in which case they will be £300 now.

I bought a pattern one several years ago but it was rubbish and changed it for genuine immediately (for my UK 750K2 though)

That's good to know Phil, just before I fall into the same trap.

If it's one of those with 4 screws surrounding a big old reflector right in the middle of the lens then I definitely did have one, I kept it so that must mean it was in decent nick or it would have gone in the bin. All I have to do is find it. It was in my way for years but since doing a tidy up a year or so ago it's not where it was, I might have bunged it in the loft, I'll have a look tomorrow.

Although the tail light from my CB750F2 was removed & sold many years ago, the tail light on my CB550K3 was the same & was available from the likes of cmsnl.com

https://www.cmsnl.com/honda-cb550k3-four-england_model14671/base-taillight_33703371601/

It was also fitted to the CB750K7, but was not available seperately

Hope that this helps with the search

Still can't find mine, I remember taking the 4 screws out of it, maybe one was stripped so I threw it or maybe it will turn up when I'm not looking for it.

Just found one in my stash of bits off a 350/4 USA import .. no lens though. Will photo later if you need one still and it is indeed the type you need.
