OEM Honda CB500 / Honda CB550 Adjustable Camshaft Sprockets

We all know why adjustable camshaft sprockets are used in the high performance world. But, stock motor configuration motors can benefit from these also. Have you ever tried to line up the camshaft marks after any sort of motor work or checking a few things? The marks usually never line up perfectly because of many reasons. One of the main reasons on a stock motor with any miles is cam chain stretch. The cam chain is like a rear chain. It stretches. So, install these modified poor man's adjustable OEM cam chain sprockets and realign your cam timing or install your performance cam.

Cryo Treated Honda CB500/CB550 Heavy Duty Cam Chain

This is another weak link to the Honda 500/550 SOHC motors. These chains are clearly stronger than stock. (continuous)

TECH TIP: Soak cam chains in oil before installation, they will last longer.

I used to have to adjust my Yamaha motorcycle chain after the first run because it would stretch. After cryo-treatment, the chains don't stretch at all, and the treatment also keeps cam chains from breaking. I haven't broken a chain since I started cryo-treating all of my parts.

Cycle X 500/550 Adapters

Here is what we have been working on!
First...the problems...

Father time is catching up with many stock components and it makes life difficult for vintage mechanics and enthusiasts.
Honda CB500 and CB550's carburetors have their own challenges to overcome at times.


Brief examples:
No room for individual air pods. Jetting stock carbs for pods or stacks can be time consuming. CR special carburetors still have a pod clearance problem.

Our Cycle X intake system features a straight, direct shot for the intake charge and will be available with 2 carburetor versions.
#1 version will have our intake manifold with 26mm CR special carburetors (bigger carbs available for you racing folks).
#2 version will have the high-performance carbs shown in the photos.

Cycle X direct shot intake adaptor.
(4) carburetor mounting rubbers and hardware.
