So, you have a busted or rusted flywheel and need a new one. Which other models will have a flywheel that fits your bike? The answer depends on whether you have a CDI (all CX500s until very late in the run) or TI bike (all 650s, all GLs, some late ('81-82) CX500s in some areas of the world).


In a nutshell, you need a flywheel from a CDI bike. That means you need one from a CX500 - '78, '79, '80 should be almost certainly CDI unless the engine has been changed for another model but it always pays to check.


CX650 - both 650ED and 650C - GL500s, GL650s and the TI CX500s ('82 CX500s in the US and AU are likely to be TI) all share the same flywheel part.
