Rob Davis, UK, said at http://www.elsham.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/cx500/camchain_parts/ "If you have a 1978 or 1979 original model CX500Z (barrel shaped brake master cylinder, black tabs over Comstar spokes where they join the wheel rim, black radiator shroud) and your plate lacks the upper extension, you should immediately fit the modified parts, which are available as a kit from Honda. The original modification was done free of charge but I don´t know if Honda will still honour this!"
