Default cx500

hi all, anyone know if the carbs off a cx500 will fit a cx500 custom? a lot of the parts look interchangeable at first glance. its the inlet stubs im really going for, gotta be sure though. a 1981 model by the way. also it seem to be slipping in gear at high speed, bevel box i wonder? cheers.

Almost certainly they will fit mate.
Slipping in gear can only be the clutch. Why do you reckon bevel box?

Easy to have a look at both ends. How does it feel when it slips? Smooth or rough.?

if not used much - almost certainly sticky clutch plates - take em off unstick n put them back they should be ok - if worn replace

Default cheers

cheers, sumthin tells me it could be the clutch, methinks a change of oil might do the trick. yep, 17k on an 82 plate for a cx500 custom i paid 375quid. a steal i reckon. dont need a lot doing to it either. had one years ago with over 70k on it, sloggers. cheers, mick.
