CB 125n side covers

I just bought an old 1980 cb125 n and am proposing to tidy it up. Both of the plastic side covers are gone so I am after them if they can be found. Does anyone have them or know where to go? Thanks, Mickl (Australia)

Re: CB 125n side covers

Still looking for those side covers as the keithturner post above didn't reply to my two emails!
Are there any out there?
Cheers, Mickl

Re: CB 125n side covers

Does anyone know where I might get part numbers for the cb125 N side covers so that maybe I might be able to find out if other models have the exact same covers. For example, maybe the 125 twins of this era may use the same covers?
Cheers, Micl

Re: CB 125n side covers

are these not right? Honda CB125 CB125S CD125S CB 125 S 76-82 Red Side Cover Panel Left & Right NEW | eBay

i looked at a couple pics of the 125n and it has what looks like the same covers as the 100n. just based on the 125s's they are interchangeable from 1976-82 on that model. it looks like the N has a sharp edge that meets the tank. i cant find any parts fiches on the 1980 cb125n. from the pictures i saw of the 125n with a google image search the covers look the same as the 125t. maybe look up a 125t's parts fiche n see if the look like what youre after.

maybe try this site, put in the vin number n see what it pulls up in way of parts fiches.

click "search model"and input the vin.

Re: CB 125n side covers

Thanks for your detailed reply Kevin. You have identified a few leads here which I will follow up.
The shiny red covers on ebay come from Thailand and I already contacted them but they replied they will not fit my 125N.
The ron ayers site looks promising as the CB125 SA model looks very similar to my bike, but some aspects are different...eg seat. Maybe the 125N was a model for Australia and Europe, I will follow up here too. There are lots of repair manuals available on eBay from England which show my bike on the cover exactly as it is, with a silver tank etc.
unfortunately, the ron ayers site shows that there is no stock available and they only come in light ruby red colour, (maybe that colour was the only one available in USA?) but it does have the part numbers.
A wrecker here in Aus thought the twins have different covers too, but he is checking the depths of his shed to see if anything is hidden there.
Many thanks for your great effort, the search continues!
Cheers Mickl

Re: CB 125n side covers

how sure are you its a 1980?

i found a site that lists cb125n but only years the parts lists were available for the N model was 1976 and 1979. however, both years used the same parts number for the side covers.

83645-383-720za & 83645-383-720zb

i did look at the 125t & the 250n of those years and they do use a different parts number for their covers so i think its safe to say the side covers from those models will not fit the 125n.

i do see that the cb100n shares the same service manual as the 125n. i found a 100n cover on ebay that looks the same as the 125n in the parts diagram. i think if there is any other models cover that will fit the 125n itll be the 100n. only year i could fid for the 100n on the site below was 1982. this is also the site i pulled this pic and the parts numbers for the 76 & 79 125n

Re: CB 125n side covers

Wow Kevin, you are certainly the new Sherlock Holmes for bike bits. You have nailed it with that diagram for sure. The covers look right and the rest of the parts in the diagram are almost certainly what I have on the bike. The year model of 1979 also works out as the Australian compliance plate on the bike indicates the plate was fixed on the frame in February 1980 so it is likely a 1979 model brought in to Australia in early 1980. The vin number is stamped on the frame CB125N 1005221
Thank you so much for your efforts in tracking this down. I will now check ebay for that cover for the 100n and see if I can get it. I will put up a picture or two some time soon. Best regards Mick Loomes

Re: CB 125n side covers

lol well after i initially spent 10 minutes looking on ebay that moved into google and at some point i became too vested to let it go.

unfortunately the site i found the diagram on didnt have the parts numbers for the 100n listed so we could compare.

this is the uk ebay listing for the 100n side cover. listing states its from a 1979 100n so i suspect the above site just doesnt have a complete listing of all world models.

i do suspect the 100n and 125n share the same body work based on the fact they are listed together in the haynes and honda official service manual. obviously they would have had some engine parts differ from one another but i think its very likely they shared frame and body components between the two. that and just looking at the part in the ebay listing it does look the same.

unfortunately, the part in the listing is a single cover and in poor shape. it could easily enough be repaired, but perhaps its greatest contribution to the cause is just seeing what one looks like and using that visual to help determine if it would fit the 125n.
