CB500/550 / rear wheel
« on: January 31, 2020, 11:04:46 AM »
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

CB500/550 / right foot peg fitting cb550 F1

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

Cheers Trigger, I have heard that the pods are a problem but Iam dealing with a £50 project bike that came already 'cafe racered ' basically an engine ,frame, wheels, tank and forks and nothing else....and Iam on a budget !

CB500/550 / 550 F1 pod air filters
« on: October 11, 2019, 05:31:10 PM »
Hi all
Probably an old topic
Looking for pod air filters to fit my 1976 550 F1
All I can find to fit are flat pancake style ones used for some small Chinese machines and quad bikes
Anyone know if these are suitable ?

Hi all
Probably been asked before but when running a 4 into 1 exhaust and pod air filters what do people recommend about main jet size ? I have 4 new jets that came in kits that are marked 100.

Thanks Phil

CB500/550 / CB 550 points or electronic
« on: February 28, 2019, 01:21:04 PM »
Hi all
Engine nearly rebuilt in my 1976 project Honda cb550.
Starting to think about getting it running.
Not much good with electrics but fortunately my neighbour is !
Whats the best option, original points ignition or a new electronic system.
I have nothing except the old points, no wires relays coils switches ....nowt !
Have talked briefly with neighbour and Motogadget  was mentioned, expensive but compared to sourcing all the bits needed would it be more straight forward ?
Anybody used it, any views ?
Thanks Phil
