Sunday,Im working on my cb 450 and realize I dont have a primary gear removal socket....

Its a 74 cb 450 by question is where is the best (have in stock) specialty tool store for vintage bikes if any or .....Does tommorrow begin a long long quest for the Holy Tool.A place that is accessible thru the web would be great cause i could next day it .

Ill have to call it a Day working on it today as im at a stand still till I can get that off, to change the clutch basket assembly out.It almost looked like it would slide all the way off but noooo!

Oh well there is an outside blues festival and I still have Booob Scotch..no its not bottled or canned...just boob scotch on the roocks.

Im so far behind ,that I think Im in first.

If it's the same tool used on most other hondas then dealers usually have them. If not I think motion pro sells them.

JB right as always motion pro has them for 9.20 and Ill go to the honda dealer tommorrow to see if they have one just to see how much more they will charge.And motion pro catalog is on it way.My tool box has handled eveything up to this point but looks like they can fill in all the blanks when needed great source and thanks again.

Evil,
Never give away your tools. You could end up needing that tool a year from now. Might buy yourself an XR100 or something. But the offer is very generous. I'll pick one up the next time I'm at the dealer.

I bought one for the 175 but I seem to need it on all my Hondas.

I was surprised that I didn't need a different one for each bike.

That looks a lot like the tool you need to pull off the centrifugal filter on a CB500T. If so, you can buy one at any decent auto parts place in the asle where they have all the "HELP" brand tools/parts. That's because this is the same tool you use to recess the brake caliper in a Honda automobile. I forget what I paid for the socket as it's been a few years but I think it was more than the $9.20 Motion-Pro gets for them. Then again if you have to have it right away, it's an option.

motion pro its on its way for 9.20 the honda dealer wanted 28 dollar plus shipping to get it to thier store.Funny I did think to check those auto parts tool racks its amazing what you find put Ill just wait for the socket. In the past I have made plenty of my own tools ussually they get the job done ..the problem is it stays around for ever and ever in its caveman state,and its always the first tool someone says what the hell is this for ,and you spend a good bit of time explaining it away.I didnt want to spend the time to make it if I was behind enemy lines and needed it for the great escape id Hogans Hero/Magiever it .Thanks Guys
