Have a look at this, it's 2019 model bike.
It's had no impact damaged in my ownership (I bought new off the showroom floor) although there feels to be a very shallow depression around the formed edge of the filler, it's easy to feel but harder to see. I wondered if the tank has been damaged prior to painting as it looks like something happened there but there are no witness marks in the parts etc.

And went for a 70 mile ride. Should have taken it off ages ago. Immeasurably better, totally smooth air flow.
It's a Givi screen which was an improvement over original but off is best for me. I could cut the OE screen down just to 'dress' the front of the bike but I think I'll see if something from one of the other CB500's fits it to give a factory finish.

Honestly, if you've been troubled by turbulent air etc just get it off and go for a ride.  :046:

Now I have Givi Touring screen to sell.

CB500X - General Chat / Thinking of fitting a flyscreen from the 500F
« on: June 03, 2020, 03:30:58 PM »
I'm considering trying a flyscreen from the CB500F on the X, has anyone tried this? Currently trying to work out if the fixings points are the same.
In warmer weather I think i'd prefer an effectively 'naked' bike.

Has anyone fitted one of these? I was looking at the 250mm variant, not sure what it'll look like though. Maybe it'll look daft being so short??
I'd like a bit more room behind my heel, particularly if I stand with the peg in the middle of the boot sole.
I don't want it to get too loud either, I use it for commuting and don't want to start upsetting the neighbours. I've got another bike for that  :047:

Cheers.

I have these for sale, I bought my bike December last year so these are very young tyres. No punctures or damage.

Maintenance and Servicing / 2019 500X, great bike but that fueling!
« on: December 30, 2019, 11:06:21 PM »
I've come from a Triumph Sprint ST 955 (2001) and the fueling on that was great. I've only done a couple of hundred miles on the CB so far and it's great apart from the fueling. It's a lively thing in first and second to some degree and it often needs feathering with the clutch.
Is it possible to map these so this is gone? I'm finding it a PITA to be honest. Not sure that the cables are helping either.

Maintenance and Servicing / Brake lever switch removal
« on: December 11, 2019, 10:06:22 AM »
This is going to be a basic one I'm sure so forgive me!
Can somebody please tell me how to remove the switch from the lever?

Thanks  :006:

I wonder if anyone has any pearls of wisdom on this. It looks to me that only one side might need to have some panels removed, probably the side of the bike where the controller is positioned.

Can I simply remove just the side panel on this side and have sufficient access for running and securing the cabling or should I remove part of the fairing, with the indicator. I don't want excess cable in the fairing void, I'll lose it near the battery or behind a panel.

Any tips gratefully received  :002: :821:
