Lighting, Electrical, and Wiring / Electrical Connectors 101
« Last post by oldtexan on Today at 01:56:59 AM »
I find that electrical connectors are one of the most confusing things.  Do I squeeze it in the middle, insert a thin screwdriver on one of the four sides, squeeze it at the end, rotate one part of it, or just pull hard in order to separate it; it's not obvious until you have successfully separated the connector.  Is there a listing somewhere with diagrams of the various types of connectors and the combination to unlock each type?  :013:

Thanks.

I've used Eastern Beaver a few times now for connectors.

Thanks for that, very handy. Will probably look at doing the same so I can get some use out of the original tyres on long road trips.

What are your thoughts on using the same brake pads with different discs?

Well, I either have to buy brake pads sets for each wheels or let the pads be weared by two different disks. The latter is the easiest and I will try that first to get a feel of the braking force before until they bed properly. Probably just like a new bike. Hopefully the difference between the disks is very small on their surface. They are the exactly same type (Sunstar).

Great idea, and equally great delivery.
Can you share a link to the indicator connectors please?

That's a great find, Irishrover.  Is it close enough to your house to make it an occasional destination? 

Yes it is, only 40 minutes ride away.  :028:

Tyres and Wheels / CB500X tubeless spoked wheels
« Last post by trollbiker on Yesterday at 09:14:14 PM »
Hi all :-) Soon winter here, next season under planning. Next year I will have two complete wheel sets for my bike. Here is a little info about the tubeless spoked wheels from Rally Raid.


For those of you planning to do the same; I bought the extra brake disks, abs-pulser rings and neccecary bolts at Partzilla. For 1/3 of the price my local Honda-dealer wanted. Here is the parts numbers to complete the 2019 model wheels with brake disks, abs puler rings and the bolts:
4 pcs 90105-KGH-900 (bolts)
1 pcs 43251-MGZ-J02 (brakedisk)
5 pcs 90131-K87-L50 (bolts)
1 pcs 44515-K87-L50 (abs-pulser ring)
5 pcs 90105-MGS-D30 (bolts)
1 pcs 45120-MKP-J81 (brakedisk)
1 pcs 42515-MKN-D50 (abs-pulser ring)

It looks like the Norfolk Coast was on a lot of people's minds.
I feel sorry for all you "put them away for winter" souls. Here' it's just getting nice  :001:

Anyone installed the rear tire hugger on a 2019?
Honda does not offer the accessory yet, but their is a maker in Germany that says they have one for the 2019. Anyone know about this part from Germany? The picture they show is not a 2019 because the swing arm and the rear brake lines have be updated on the 2019 model. Attached is the




It is possible to do a home made job if you can find an old SUV wheel cover, cut out L & R halves and stick them together.  I made mine to extend below the swing arm to fit between the tire and chain to keep dirt off the chain. The original chain cover  is retained.  The hugger is attached to the swing arm with cable ties and adhesive rubber strip, and is still in place after 5000 km rough riding.
For a front fender extender, you can cut a suitable shape from 1/8" insertion rubber sheet and fix it with double sided tape. Again, still on after 5000 km.  Total cost just a couple of bucks, and a fun day in the workshop away from wife.
