Parts Interchangability
on: July 04, 2020, 06:38:47 PM
I am starting the process of rebuilding my 2015 CB500X after my son took an unfortunate 70 mph slide on it, taking out a mailbox in the process. The front wheel, fender, upper cowl including cowl bracket, windscreen, speedometer, fuel tank, are all history. The left fork may have a very slight bend possibly the right also, won't know till I get them off. My question is does anyone know if a list exists as far as parts interchangeably between 13-18 year models as well as between 500X - 500F - and 500R models. For instance the 2015 front wheel list for $500+ most places while a 2016 front wheel can be bought as low as $198 at Bike Bandit. They are the same wheel. Any and all info regarding these items would be appreciated!
Thanks,
Robert

Most parts bug the cowl area are interchangeable. Wheels, fork stanchions despite having different cost, they all work out.
Let me know the list you're in doubt and I can comment on details.

Thanks Oyabun, did you happen to know about the speedometers?  I see a good CBR500R speedo on ebay, looks like it'd be the same thing.

I have a cbr500 speedo on my 500x, as I dislike the yellow tint of the original.
BTW, if the electronics are not broken inside the housing, both the front and rear speedo plastics can be replaced with brand new parts also.

Yeah I saw that, unfortunately the circuit board is pretty much broke in half. I think I can buy this CBR speedo for a reasonable price. Thanks!
