Probably not a “Deluxe” unless it was imported from the USA (which was the only country that had the Deluxe model).

If it was an Australian model it was known as a “Shadow” which had different gauges to the USA Deluxe model.

Hi Guys

The photo above is of my CX500 originally a deluxe model single spine
I swapped the CX500 motor for a CX650
The front end is off a Kawasaki ZX6R
The wheels came from Cogneto Moto
I built the seat myself and got it upholstered
She goes like a rocket and handles and brakes really nice

You can check out the whole evolution of this bike on my YouTube channel


Cheers Coolhand99
CX Electrical and Electronic / RayModule floating around?
« Last post by Canada_Dry on Yesterday at 12:46 »
Hey guys,

Trying to decide if my CDI box is cooked or my G47 stator is cooked.   Has anyone got a ray module floating around I can purchase or should I just go all in on a Hall affect and pray it’s not the stator 😂.

I Appreciate any advice. 

Ask the gurus / Re: Starter Clutch

thank you Gurus
a few taps on the side of the offending carby with a plastic hammer, some fresh fuel and it started.  I used the idle adjuster turned it up let it run then lowered it and it idled perfectly.
thank you so much for your help.

Thanks Joe.

My back yard knowledge has me calling every type of shaft a "spline", so please ignore that.

But thanks heaps for the explanation.

I see the issue & will take your advice on finding a replacement.

That is the right part number.

Sorry Doddsy, just edited my post while you were replying.....

Thanks mate.

Please bear with me for a few days.

I'd re-assembled it to see how well it worked & while better, it's still missing too often.

Hi Doddsy,
It does depend on the dimensions and shape. Is it Part Number 28110-425-010 ?
That appears to be common to all Honda 4's of the era and should be easy to replace.
However, I can certainly get it ground or grind it myself, the time and or expense is in making the grinding arbor for it. The inside dimension is a lot smaller than the CX's. Making that arbor is only ever worthwhile if there was more than 5 or 6 of these wheels to grind. It would take at lease 4 hours to centre, turn, thread, grind, test etc. - all with high precision machine tools. It looks simple but is far from trivial....
Not sure where the spline on the 900 part is that you mention.....

Can you turn down the surface of the starter clutch boss on a similar gear Joe?

I'm actually asking for my CB900 which is similar in size & shape using the same starter rollers. (A very different spline though).

Mine has worn unevenly & my home tools aren't able to get the result.

I've just had another lot of starter clutches ground. These are the large gear with the starter clutch boss for the one-way clutch rollers.
They typically get damaged (brinnelled) on the CX650s if the starter is not powerful enough...
I supply these as an exchange item.
PM me if you need one.
