CB500/550 / Re: Dating help and insurance woes
« on: July 19, 2018, 10:31:39 PM »
I got a similar reply from Honda, said they couldn't identify the DOM of my CB500K, I got the cheque back as well, I responded by saying they were required by law to keep records and just because they couldn't find my exact numbers I'm fairly sure they could find numbers before and after mine in which case although they couldn't give me an exact date they could give me an approximate date. This they ended up doing, and it was free as well  :)

You could try that approach if VJMC aren't able to date it either.

I've raced round Aintree, small track but a long straight.

How did you cope with Beechers brook  ;D ;D ;D

Fine, The Chair however was a bit of a problem.

I love this forum The original question was answered in the first response and we are now 3 pages in.
I wonder why the search function never works on here.  ;D ;D
And that question was about how to remove tank badges. ???
And I wouldn't mind but they ended up being the transfer type anyway  :) :)

I don't mind a trip to Spalding for a member, only 45 mins away. Always a gamble with any secondhand motor, you can't see inside the bloody things.

Graham lives over that way, could he not inspect the engine for you? If he's willing of course.

Am I wrong here but the breakers one is the one with the broken fins and missing bolts, the other one in Spalding looks fine from the outside and it appears he's looked after it. Might be cheaper than getting your old engine working again.

I've seen this before, the brass pipe on the petrol tap was partially blocked, ran fine on reserve as it gets petrol from another opening in the tap. Sounds like you need to get the tap out and check for blockages.

He would until you hit the twisties and then you'd kill the Wing.

Complete one in Manchester for £60, seems to come with a spare engine as well. Body is rusty though but still looks ok.

The JMC swingarm dates back to the early 80's, and the non braced version took standard fitments, I presume the bracing option was offered without any thought as to the consequencies.

I was thinking of advise they gave when they were selling them, not now as I doubt they are still in business.

Well that's annoying if true as I was refused access entirely to the site because I was on a "modern" bike even though it was a Honda, I explained I had display items in the topbox but I was made to park on the general car park. This was even though my reg number was registered before I arrived, didn't have to pay but a bit annoying even so.

Any idea what JMC advised on this problem, they couldn't really market a product without knowing it caused this problem and so they should have come up with a solution, even if it was only supplying a new type of spring.
