Mmmmm. Might want to think twice before ordering these. Even with the “35mm” spacers fitted and clamped up hard they are free to rotate. And one of the camps won’t pinch up as the drilling’s are too shallow. I can see A trip down to the plumbers for some pvc down pipe and yet another bodge solution.

Thanks Matt. That’s the problem...too many to chose from :-\. Was hoping somebody on the forum had a successful recommendation.

 I intend to repair them with new tube and rechrome, but that will take time I’m afraid.

Hi, Phil.

I could be wrong, but I’m sure I’ve read that the 750 nits are longer than the 550 variants. Totally unconfirmed by the way. From where are thos 750 items sourced, I could make some enquiries?

Update. The CB550 1977 F2 needs a 3mm shim to safely clear the lock stops and bottom yoke. Unfortunately this means the headlamp brackets don’t fit correctly. Just to further reinforce Triggers observations, to make them fit correctly shim the bottom bearing and mill out 6mm from the head stock for the top bearing.

I’m going back to all bearings.... ;D

I was just wondering if their is a recommended replacement for the standard head lamp ears while retaining the standard headlamp. Unfortunately my headlamp ears need considerable restoration work (new indicator stalks...the po sawed them off  :-\), which will delay my build and I’m eager not to lose momentum.

They don’t need to be pretty, just functional.

Apologies....0.2mm and 0.3mm total.

Do you think they need treatment? Is there a published factory tolerance?

CB500/550 / Stanchion run out.
« on: March 27, 2021, 06:20:22 PM »
Evening all. Help please...again :-[

I’ve got the stanchions in ‘V’ blocks and I’m measuring total run out in one leg of 2mm and 0.3mm total for t’other leg?

Are these acceptable numbers or will I be doing some business with Mr Philpott?. I can’t seem to find this topic on the forum of in the workshop manual?

Yes, fully agree. Iv’e just built up the hub based on the second drawing and it seems to be correct. All a bit confusing for someone of my limited knowledge, but I only want to do it once safely.

Thanks for your reply.
