Hi all, saw a topic on this a while back on the forum, however there was no conclusion.
Guy that was gonna do it said that the pivot bolt was the same, and swingarm mounted shock, although there was no conclusion on measurments etc.
Anyone know the dimensions of the pivot end of the swingarm and length of shock mounting etc. Worth a look given how cheap these swingarms are, would be nice to see if there was a possibility of using it to fit a wider rear wheel and what the offset would have to be on the sprocket

Good stuff!

It happens due to the ethanol content in modern fuel. Those are made of a type of rubber which resists it.

Be careful with the plastic T parts anyway, but they'll probably be fine.

If you can, get a Vessel brand or other JIS PH2 size screwdriver to take the carbs apart. The screws are fine until you go at them with a normal European Philips driver, that's when the heads round out.

@ a_morti,

Thank you very much for the link my friend.

I just confirmed the o-rings are the issue and not the parts themselves.

These guys make better than OEM seals, assuming your plastic parts are ok.

I'm not sure about my GB500's origins as I bought it from a girl in Seattle in February 2010.  The little CB-1 is still for sale and while the money would come in handy, I'm also kind of happy no one has expressed any interest.

quick question.
I noticed on those gorgeous scenery photos you show of the CB1, there's also a photo a GB500. I sold a GB500 to someone in SanFran about 10 years ago. It came out of SouthFlorida. By chance it wouldn't have been you?....would it have been?
That GB was my uncles and I helped him sell it to the west coast when I was living in the South East (FL) region.

just curious.

Hey Sam, the lowers are stock but the adjustability is not. There is some documentation in the Hawk forums where F3 cartridges were swapped into Hawk forks, which may be what you have here except into stock CB-1 forks.

It appears that F2 forks were still damper rods and would not have the compression adjustment that your forks have.

Hello, Can someone help me identify the forks that are installed on my CB1? I believe these are either F2 or F3 forks. Is there a way to tell if the fork tubes are the original CB1 tubes or if they are different? I would like to get the forks serviced, but I am not really sure what these are.

Iím a little late to comment here, but I too am running 16/37 sprockets and find them much better than stock.

You mentioned your bars being close to the tank... stock bars from a Honda Hawk GT are either identical or almost identical to the CB-1 MKII of 1991, and will give you a few inches of rise. Iíve read of several CB-1 owners who love the feel of the GT bars, and still retain the Honda OEM quality. You will need new cables made a few inches longer than stock, so it is not a plug and play option if you decide to go that route. Motion Pro can make the cables. I will change mine at some point, I have the bars, I just havenít gotten around to ordering the longer cables.

Everyone will have opinions on tires, for me there is nothing better than the Bridgestone S20 EVOs. Amazing in every aspect.
