View Full Version : Looking for a Honda tool for cb500 rear hub....

So ive been trying to find the tool used to unscrew the 4-pin outer piece on the sprocket side of what i believe to be a cb500 rear hub. Im going to powder the hubs and cant get the bearings out without getting this piece off. I gave a call to the cool dude over at cb750cafe and he mentioned it was a reverse thread and that the tool was an old factory honda tool that was never sold. Can anyone help me out with this........a location of someone who has the tool or any ideas that might help. Thanks everyone in advance.

make your own tool.

if it's a similar bearing retainer to the one that i'm thinking of on my cb750, this tool i made would do the trick (after you drill out the punched divots at the retainer/hub thread interface that prevent it from backing out):

if you don't have the time to make the tool, i've heard of guys clamping two pins in a vise at the proper spacing distance and rotating the sprocket carrier on it to unthread that bearing retainer.

Not sure how tight that retainer is, but you could acheive the same type of tool without welding. Use a 12-14" long piece of flat stock 1/2"- 1" wide. Drill/tap one end for two bolts, use the other end as your handle.
