With the new tyre your transmission is 2% shorter.
The ground clearance is 1/4 inch lower at the rear.

150 is smaller than 160 stock tyre, so no problem with the swingarm :016:.

Stock tires on my 2016 are 160/60-17    I have a brand new 150/60-17 how much of a difference will the tire make and will it be too wide in the swingarm?

The guy from Bruudt is good to deal with their stuff is typical German engineering, not cheap but well made, I would think if you'll pay the postage he'll send it to you. I opted for their rad guard it's a nice bit of kit very well made & quickly arrived in the UK, only hiccup was DPD delivered it to the wrong address, same house number as mine but wrong road over a mile away, he took it up with them.

Thanks for the advices. Today I checked both front and rear suspension adjustments, they were both in "standard" setting as declared in owner's manual. However I gave two clicks to rear shock and made a ride, nothing change, the handlebar wobble  remains the same.

I decided to leave the bike with the dealer. I hope they give me an answer the Monday.
Selling a 20" Madstad windscreen with adjustable mounting brackets for 2013-2015 CB500X. Brackets mount to the X with the stock windshield mounting screws and rubber-backed nuts. In good condition with one ~1.5-inch long scrape next to the bracket; this scrape is in front of the headlight nacelle and not in the field of view when riding.

This model on the Madstad website:

$120 shipped in USA. $80 if you pick up in Albuquerque. 

PM if interested.

Well, I was able to ride both bikes and I have to say, the CB500 just seemed a little more put together and for the price Iíve found it for, I can now happily say Iím the proud owner of a CB500X!

Thanks to all who responded to this forum. It helped sway the decision. I canít wait to get this thing up to speed in maintenance and start adding the RR kit! Now does anyone have rally raid parts they are trying to get rid of ;)

Hope time proves it was a good decision. Welcome to the club :-)
