Maintenance and Servicing / Front wheel noise
« on: May 25, 2019, 07:05:19 PM »
I had my front wheel changed at a garage recently and I noticed a high pitch whine seems to be coming from the front wheel. I'm wondering if it was put back correctly.

Is the spacer on the front left the right way round? Picture of my one link below.

Maintenance and Servicing / Sprocket questions
« on: May 17, 2019, 03:03:56 PM »
My bike has only done 6000 miles but the chain is stiff and kinks badly, and the rear sprocket although usable looks terrible like the outer layer has crumbled away in patches including the nuts. I just wanted to check a couple things before I order parts:

Does the standard front socket on the cb500x have a rubber cushion?

What is the size of the rear sprocket flanged nuts? I think it's either M10 or M12.


Lighting, Electrical, and Wiring / USB Charger

I've recently purchased a 2016 500x  :082: and I'd like to install a USB charger for some adventuring however I'm struggling to find a tutorial on how it's done.

Found an old thread on here from 2014:,955.msg7881.html#msg7881 but I've not really understood, though it has raised some questions like what bits do I need to buy, do I need to buy a switch etc. 

I don't have experience of doing this but I would like to give it a go - is there a "noob" step by step guide anywhere to wiring it up?
