Middle Cowl Replacement
on: September 25, 2020, 10:48:39 AM
I need to replace the right middle cowl on my 2013. It had sustained some damage in the hands of the PO and now the top corner where it bolts down next to the fuel tank has cracked away. My question, to someone who perhaps has done this before, does the COWL SET, L. MIDDLE (TYPE2) (WL) 64400-MGZ-J81ZB at $174 come with the decals? Or will I need to order them separately? I'm assuming it comes in the right color  :034:.

Thanks for any help.
Cheers

When I ordered  two replacement panels for my sons Honda cb125f it came with the decals already applied so I would guess it should be the same for the cb500x.

The parts diagram shows it with the graphics. There is only one part number shown so I guess there is only one color for that year model. Is that correct?

That's the way I read it as well. I can get the part from Ron Ayers for around $173 and I'm quite sure that black was the only color in 2013. Not I just have to hope that my 7 year old left side matches the new right side.
Thanks

Check the price. I thought they were like 85.00 bucks each checking the part number on the internet

If you're not in a hurry Asian Moto Parts (Thailand) might be worth a look. I haven't factored in freight, but prices are good.

Thanks Wedgetail, Asian Moto looks to be about $146 after shipping. Have you ever done business with them?

32dgrz, I'd sure like to find one for 85 bucks  :001:  So far about the best price I've found is in the $170 range from a U.S. based supplier. I'm still looking though as I think I can repair the cracks with JB Weld for the time being. I do need to get a replacement though. Thanks

138 for a pair? That's a good price. Can you tell me where you got them?

Not sure what you meant about the Rally Raid stickers, sorry.  Have you got a used set of middle cowl's? What does "aren't in perfect shape" look like  :001:?

Thanks
