1972 Honda XL250 part needed

I've got a broken upper fork bridge on my 1972 Honda XL250 and am having no luck in finding one, new or used, online. Anyone have any leads?

Re: 1972 Honda XL250 part needed

I had an old 1972 CB350F. The opening where the fork tubes slid through the top bridge were cracked opposite the pinch bolts on both the left and the right.

I too couldnít find one via conventional methods, so I joined SOHC.net (or .com, I canít remember). Found a guy in Vancouver who had one. It might take some work on your part, but go to Partzilla.com, find the exact XL 250 you have K1, K2 etc, and look for the top bridge part number. It will then tell you the other models that shared it ie XL350, XL400. At least then you know you can expand your search a little bit.

Good luck!

Re: 1972 Honda XL250 part needed

I had wondered if any other bikes shared the part. Thanks for the lead.

Re: 1972 Honda XL250 part needed

part number 53230-340-305

parts fiche found here. http://shop.westernhonda.com/fiche_section_detail.asp

part for sale from david silver Honda XL250K2 1975 USA Top yoke - Parts For Honda Motorcycles - David Silver Spares

says for a 1975 xl250 k2, but the part number is correct. looking at the parts fiche from the site i linked its the same part number from 1972 up to 75.

the one at david silver is 90$ prob wont find it cheaper than that.

here is one in stock overseas closer to the 300$ range.

Re: 1972 Honda XL250 part needed

Part has been ordered. Waiting for that nice feeling when the brown box is on the front porch when I come home.

Thank you 954Kevin for doing the research for me.
