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

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...
