The tongued washer on my K5 are in really bad shape and they are ugly in general. Cannot find any online. What if I use threadlocker and split washers instead of tongued washers? I think I will be just fine. The CB400F uses split washers, not tongued.
What do you guys think?

Mm, I don't know where you've looked, or what size(s) you are looking for, but I have seen a few sources on line. Alternatively, you can try as you suggest, but its not my fault if the nut falls off.

you could make them yourself, or safety wire them.

eBay is awash with them. JT Marks is a good resource for all things OEM, Alex and I both use him for parts.

Good luck

Thanks. I looked at Bikebandit, Partzilla, RonAyers and eBay. I am not sure how is eBay awash with them, but I couldn't find any. Perhaps I am typing the wrong thing? Are they called tongued washers? Is there another name for them?

Is email the only way to contact JT Marks?

I think I will go with thread locker and split washer. There is no enough room to drill the bolt to wire it and I think that's an overkill.

That's what I tried. This is why I usually go to Ron Ayers. In any event, after more thorough search, I was able to find them at Hondapartsnow at a very reasonable price. Not $25 a set like some idiot on ebay wants.

Cheers,
Peter

Or email JT Marks and get list price - probably less than $2. I just bought seat rubber mounts from him and they were list price <$5

Are you talking about the washer for the clutch basket?

Thanks, Andy. I will email JT Marks. The other sources are way too pricey when you include the shipping.

Hi Mike,

I am talking about the washers for the rotor and the sprocket.

Thanks,
Peter

I think Peter needs to use a site called "Google.com"   Grin Cool

You are a savvier searcher than me, Ben. I found only one or two who ask ridiculous money! And I don't need one. I need three for the front and 2 for that back. Ideally, 6 for the front and 4 for the back, so I have a set for my super duper Lester wheels.

I emailed JT and I am waiting for his response. If he doesn't have it, I will thread lock it and use split washers. I really can't see what's big deal. As I said, the CB400F doesn't have them. The modern motorcycles don't have them. I am not paying $60 for a few washers.

Thank you all for your help!
