Report on the conversion of my CBX 2019
« on: September 10, 2019, 08:36:03 PM »
Hello CB500X friends,

As already written in my introduction, I have been the proud owner of a black 2019er for several weeks. Although I already like the machine as a standard, I would like to change some things and adapt the CBX to my requirements.

Part 1:
First, I darked the standard windshield from the inside.

After dismantle the windshield, it must be cleaned. Then I sanded the inside with a fine fleece and water. Thereafter, the shield must be carefully cleaned again and taped with tape and newspaper or foil. In order to make the substrate paintable, I first used Plastic Primer and then applied the translucent Dupli-Color varnish in several thin layers in the cloister. This must be done very carefully, otherwise there will get clouds in the paint. Before the paint has dried through, I carefully removed the tape on the edge and then after drying the next day the paint finish still sealed with clear paint. After curing, remove the remaining tape and newspaper and carefully reassemble the glass.

I think the result is impressive. For my taste, the dark disc fits better with the motorcycle.
To be continue...

Thanks. I am still rearranging some other things at the moment, so there are photos of the whole bike later.

"  difficult decision, I have too many ideas ..."
My approach when that happens, is go with the idea that excites you the most. The other ideas usually fall into place as the executed ideas narrow what can then be done.
Or have an overall philosophy of what you want and make sure that ideas fit into that paradigm . Mine was to reduce the weight as much as possible ( fantastic motor pushing a lump in the CB500X's case).


If you get tired of that direction return it to std and start a new direction.
