Newbie in Thailand
« on: June 29, 2019, 12:52:56 PM »
Hi Australian in Thailand in BKK.  Bought the CH500x for touring and exploring. Has hard luggage boxes and other accessories. So far a great bike. Just doing the services as a new owner. Changing oils and filters chain and sprockets. Just changed the exhaust to a migraine. But it doesnt have the centre stand stop, where can I find info on a solution? Thanks and hope to catch up with any local members.   Simon.

Welcome to the forum. A Honda dealership should be able to get you that stop. No?

Welcome. Have a look at some of the many discussions on sprocket size, you may want to go with different from stock.
The X is a great bike for Thailand!

I am thinking the 16 T front sprocket seems the best option.  But will see what I can find and from where. So far BigWing Honda onRama5 get a thumbs down

Agreed, the 500x is a near perfect bike for Thailand. Sadly dealer support is lacking. BigWing Hua Hin did not even stock a fuse for the bike when I called in last year.... had to order from Bkk!

I keep my 500x in Chiang Mai and ride with the Ulysses Thailand group there. The club is a useful resource for anyone visiting the north, meeting weekly at the Riders Corner bar/restaurant in the old city. Ride up and join us! :)
Mostly based in Sydney but keep the 500X in Thailand for frequent visits.
