CB500/550 / Re: Anyone know what this part is please?

Dont remember it being fitted on later models
My late 550K doesn't have it.

Either a different MC or someone removed it not knowing what it was IMO.

The 8mm headed bolts off the later Hondas will fit where the phillips go Bryan, got rid of all mine as I hated them with a vengeance.

You do realise that you've quoted the part number incorrectly?

The part you've listed is the captive nut which the headlight bolts screw into with the earth strap attached.

The part number is 61304-292-000

Not according to the parts book I downloaded Oddjob, see pics below.

Missprint Sye, the same part number is shown for No21 as well, can't both have the same number.


Same part used on the CB1300 I also own, different part number but looks the same part to me.

61304-379-690 £4.21 each and still available to buy from Honda.

Yes they are interchangeable. That actually looks a lot like a 500 guard, not sure when they did it but Honda stopped the front brace on the 550, F2 and K3 certainly didn't have it.

The main difference between the guards was that the 500 was drilled for a front number plate bracket and the 550 wasn't.

Yeah it was there Bryan, not exactly a well known piece and no maintenance needed on it so it just sailed under the radar so to speak.

Good news Bryan.

As I also hold a HGV license I know how the DVLA are going to react.

Mate of mine had a massive heart attack whilst delivering to an Asda supermarket, long story short, he has only 17% of his heart still working, lost his license for good BUT he's alive and reasonably well considering, if worst comes to the worst, there are far worse things that could have happened in this case. Look on the bright side, keep your mind sharp and you can defeat most anything.

Here's hoping you get well soon, make a full recovery and can get back to work in short order.

Of course my comments were tongue in cheek Julie, as I'm sure that's the way you took it. Nice to rib friends isn't it?

TUT TUT TUT Julie, the gap in the fork clamp is supposed to be at the back not the front, I'd ask Graham to administer some punishment but I think he'd enjoy it too much  :) :) :)

I'd take the butterfly nuts off the air filter casing and swap them with the tool compartment nuts, nothing worse than needing a spanner to get into the tools and then finding out you need a tool to get to the tools.

No, the 550F seat is a different shape. Easiest way to compare it to the 500K and 550K is that the back of the seat raises up and it's there that the tool kit is stored, you should be able to see the flap and the butterfly nuts that hold it shut.

You ok Bryan?
You ok? obviously not or you wouldn't be there

He could be, I've had my heart monitored as they thought I may have had a little heart attack but it ended up just being a muscle problem, so I was ok but still in hospital.

I'd still be happy to be there though if you were my nurse Julie  ;D ;D pss don't tell Graham
