h box compatability
« Started on: 07-Apr-18, 16:04 »
I have a 650e and want to keep the h box(crossover box) I need to buy one but are all models the same except for the muffler angle will a cx500e fit my bike or another model?

The header angles are different between a 500 and 650 so I don’t think they will swap across.

That surprises me. I thought they'd be the same. Can anyone check parts manuals.

With the angle difference:

Maybe with a hammer you could make it work? It's enough of an angle that it'd be a problem imho but I would be happy to hear from someone who has actually tried it...

CX500E has the H-box 18310MC5003 or the same one as a GL500, 18310-MA1-003 - the CX650E uses 18310-MG0-720.
