CB500/550 / New reg/rec
« on: June 29, 2020, 10:04:37 AM »
Hi all
Anyone fitted one of these ebay reg/rec to 1976 CB550 F1 ?

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Regulators-Rectifier-for-Honda-CB400F-CB550F-Super-Sport-1975-1977/143232684387?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

Bought the bike with no original electrics so working from scratch.
Electrical novice (so jumped in at deep end) but my neighbour is helping who is well versed with things electrical.
Need to know the correct connections.
Thanks in advance.

Hi all
Anyone want to sell a rear brake arm for my 1976 CB 550 F1 ?
Failing that are there any other bikes that use the same ?

Thanks

Hi all
has anyone else had trouble fitting the rear wheel on their 550 F1 ? mine is really tight to fit. I have put in new wheel bearings and double checked they are seated all the way in but still need a pry bar to get the last spacer and chain adjuster to fit.

Thanks Phil

Hi all, bought bike in bits and on to fitting the right side foot peg. It seems to me that it goes between the engine and frame because the rear lower mounting bolt isn't long enough for it to fit on the outside of frame. Only problem is the gap is too narrow for the peg.
Am I missing something obvious ...wrong bolt, wrong peg (although left side is fine)

Thanks Phil
