CB500 Clutch Rod Replacement
My cb500 is almost 100% finished up. I got my new set of Avon road runners on the other day, man what a difference new tires make!
I was still having issues with my clutch, it felt like shit, and it turns out my clutch push rod was broken. The clutch adjuster was also cracked. I got a new OEM clutch adjuster from bikebandit.com
CB500 clutch push rods are very very very hard to find on Ebay, but knowing honda double overs a lot of their parts, I figured another model must fit. It took a TON of googling but I found out that the cb500 uses the same clutch push rod as the cb450/cl450/cb500t, which made it much easier to find one ($20 on ebay). For future reference here is the part number – 22850-323-000
I had to take off the right side cover and then the clutch basket (the 4 bolts shown above) to get the broken push rod out, but it gave me a good excuse to change the oil and oil filter. I also put in a new air element. Man the bike is feeling awesome! So I rode it to the beach!

If you missed the camping trip, you missed out big time. Sat night was pretty awesome. I was on auto-pilot the whole night. I’m sure you’ll hear some of the stories of the craziness that went down at the “bars”. haha. Check “I like the weekend” for all the images!
