Maintenance and Servicing / Re: Water pump oil leak

Downside here is that I now find myself watching it like a hawk. A buzz killer that may yet see this bike going from my garage sooner than later. A one off problem I could live with but I strongly suspect this issue is not in that category. Simply not the "Honda experience" I had anticipated.
This was one of the multiple reasons that made me buy a Wee to replace my CB500X. This feeling of being worried about the pump, checking it for leaks almost every day, etc. Personally I just can't enjoy my CB after this. Bikes are supposed to give you freedom, not mechanical problems or worries.

I bet the problem is the battery. I would try to charge it as Stokie suggests or put new well charged battery and give a try.

Itís clear that can only really be achieved with a better quality shock.
And most of all it should be made for your specific weight and riding style so you need a manufacturer that gives you this possibility. It will make the real difference  :169:

Have previous version (A40) on a Wee - quite happy with them - the only issue is a grip with wet and cold weather but nothing too alarming. And it handles well on gravel and broken or dirty tarmac. A41 will be the next tyre change.

If my memory doesn't fail some folks has problems with noise and it was plastic cap that covers the steering stem nut - it comes loose with time and vibrates.

Return it 100% to stock.
Sell all after market parts separately.
Yep - it's a good idea. I'm selling my CB and seems like people are afraid of tuned bikes - they imagine previous owner as a petrolhead with bloodshot eyes revving the engine at every upshift.

CB500X - General Chat / Re: CB500X stock exhaust sounds awesome!

Or you can buy bespoken rear shock instead of exhaust and obtain some real improvement in handling :001: Given the amount of twisties you have in Croatia it will be a good investment.

That's an excellent dealer. You should reward his support by taking him all your business for parts, service, and accessories. Also, when you get ready for a new bike this is where you should go.
Totally agree - this guy deserves it. This is the sort of dealer we should support.

I'm sure they do save lives but that doesn't mean you have to force things on people. At the moment we still have freedom of choice
Try to see the situation from Administration point of view - when an accident happens somebody should pay the consequences. Pay hospital attention, rehabilitation, rescue effort, disability pension, etc. And strangely the people who has an accident due to their own reckless or exercising their right to freedom still wants hospital attention, rehabilitation, rescue effort, disability pension  :084: They rather complain a lot - because ambulance has taken long time to arrive, because rescue helicopter is not available due to another rescue mission on course, because there was a microscopic pothole in a corner they tried to manage at 180km/h, because paramedics have cut the helmet buckle strap to remove the helmet (true story  :087:), etc.

In fact Administration must act like a Nanny because to this day I don't know anyone who was able to overcome serious accident by himself. Don't know - maybe Bill Gates has enough cash to do it but certainly not the 99% of the people out there.

In poor countries you can ride as you want and what you want. Why? Because if you crash there will be no helicopters transporting you to the surgery neither disability pension. In developed countries you have all this stuff but it should be used sensibly - it's too expensive so Adminsitration tries to minimize accidents.
