CB350/400 / Re: rear wheel respoke truing -driving me mad!

Look at the spokes and put tape on the ones where you can see the head in hub both sides then loosen the nipples on those, this leaves you 20 spokes to adjust to true with instead of 40 which is way easier!!!
Dont forget to ignore the "kick" where the rim is welded or it will drive you crazy and also retighten the 20 you loosened evenly at the end

Barrels/pistons
Gearbox
Clutch
Crankcase and clutch cover
Sprocket cover

Yes and no, the early 500 had a smaller hole in the crankcase so the 550 liners dont fit, but you can bore 500 cylinders to take up to 550 +0.5 pistons

Yes its just old stock sold late. If you pay Honda about £35 they will give you a build date which will be earlier
