Good value clutch case cover... (from CMX500)
« on: August 09, 2017, 10:45:52 PM »
I just thought I'd pass this handy suggestion along to anyone considering a little extra protection for their clutch cover...

You may be aware that Honda launched the new Rebel 500 earlier this year (CMX 500), and because of the forward foot-peg position, they have included a plastic cover over the trailing edge of the clutch housing.

Now I'm not suggesting this is going to completely protect the case in the event of a drop (on rocks etc), but hey, for the $26 bucks it cost, I thought I'd give it a go and see how it works on the CB500X too.


photo. this is what you'll need - the plastic cover, plus 3 x longer engine cover bolts to replace the existing ones.

1 x 11380-MKG-A00

3 x 90002-MJE-D00


photo. my original clutch case - scratched, but not broken - even after the Rubicon Trail...



photo. the three [short] bolts that need replacing - the two directly below the oil filler, and the one in front of the clutch arm.


photo. The new bolts are 40mm long (compared to the 27mm originals).



photo. It's really that simple!

Neat eh?

I like it, nice tip! I'm sure you'll know before too long if it works!
Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.

Nice addition, I might give that a go aswell, could always use the extra protection to keep the bike looking nice at least.
I don't actually own a vehicle with more than 2 wheels...
