    68 CB350 - steering tensioner advice

    so, the rod joining top and bottom of the steering tensioner gave way during disassembly, the handle was also completely junk. So now I'm at a decision - how requisite/functional was this tensioner when it worked?

    ^^^ what he said. If your bike is anything like mine was all the friction damper parts are rusty, seized up junk. Replacement parts aren't the easiest to come by. But if you do decide to repair it, both Hales Honda and CHR Components Ltd. in the UK offer aluminum alloy replica RSC friction steering damper knobs for that trick race look.

    It can be difficult getting parts from across the pond. Midge had bad cusomter service experience from Hales Honda and CHR never bothered to respond to my e-mail inquires so a phone call might work better for you.

    Good luck!

    Thanks guys, that's about how I was feeling about it, just wanted to be sure I wasn't making a mistake. I've come across a couple on ebay and they're all in the 100$ range, that's just bonkers to me...
