Hi Dami
A simple fix for your pitted forks, if they are realy deep
is fill them with Arldite and leave to dry then remove access with very fine 1000 or 12000 wet and dry paper(use it wet),then install your new fork seals.
Any Problems post a note

I have leaking front forks. My dealer told me I have to renew the front forks because they are scraped at critical pooints. Offcourse you can see it/feel it a little bit(very much says my dealer, what did you do with your bike ? but I drive like a grandfather, so scratches are probably still from a previous owner) and I also noticed that the cromium layer is a bit worn-out.
My question: is it true what my dealer says: if I reassmbly averything without changing the front forks themselves there is a good chance that within a few weeks they will leak again (although I drove with it for 8 years without leaking problems).
Thank you in advance for any answer.

I am in the process of buying a 1983 Canadian spec 550 F.

I have heard concerns about the cam chain. What should I do up front to ensure it is up to spec.

The bike has 33,000 km on it.

Hi again Aaron ,

I bought one last summer , they don't have the same pattern but they fit OK if you're not looking for a 100 points restauration . Cheap and very fast mailing service .I got mine in 7 days and I sent my payment by mail ! I was quoted over $200. for a genuine seat in Quebec last summer ( and $ 900. for a complete exhaust system ) , fuddle duddle Honda .

Hi Aaron ,

Don't spend your time locating a decent exhaust system , they just don't exist anymore ,
rebuild it instead . I got mine done for ... $ 10. They all rust a the cone section ,
if you need it I can send you a cardboard pattern from witch you can cut a metal
one before getting it welded at any automobile body shop. Company that specialize
in sheet metalworking for building ( , heating and air cond. ) can also
cut and roll the cone for you . If you want to see the result I'll send you a pic .

I am looking for an owners manual for my (I believe 1984) Honda CBX 550 F. The Bick-end (or however you spell this) is out, so I would like to open up the engine and get her fixed, but a you can guess now I need a manual. If someone has one for sale please let me know.
Many thanks in advance,

HI Chaps.
Having now sold my CBX 550 F1, bo ho, I have a few spares for sale, so before they go on EBay, I thought I would give you lot the chance first.

1 x Honda Service manual CBX400F/CBX550F. A bit grubby, but very good. 1982

1 x Haynes manual No 940. As above

2 x microfiche 1983 CBX550FD. Feb 83. Shows all the part numbers. A godsend for places like Dave Silver

1 x Honda owners manual. CBX550F/FII 1982. VG condition

2 x front brake calipers, shrouds, discs, all hoses and handlebar master cylinder and lever working and in good condition. Just needs a clean

1 x rear brake caliper, discs, hose and master cylinder, pivot bolt Rubber piston seal. working and in good condition. Just needs a clean

1 x rear shock. no leaks, working and in good condition.
Just needs a clean

1 x clock binnicle. Outer casing damaged, but internals ok. show 37258 miles.

1 x Starter motor. It had new bushes, and it did work before I replaced it with a new one, and probably just needs an internal clean. (200 quid for a new one)

If you want somthing, or have a question, just email me with the subject CBX550.
I am not out to make a killing, but please be sensible, and remember postage can be a killer. I live in York, UK.
