Looking for engine guards for 2017 cb500FA and wondering if that model and any cb500x models are interchangeable.
(Hoping the tn1121 by Givi is.
Thoughts? Experiences.

Thanks!

The TN1121 will not fit for the CB500F. The front of the two bikes are completely different.

The X is taller so it has more space where the cross bar goes above the radiator. The F has no space there (and I think the radiator is lower too) so there is no way to make it fit as it would have to go through the headlamp.

I am pretty sure the only sort of guards that could possibly fit both bikes would be ones without a cross bar.

It is also worth remembering that the 2019 X introduced a a 19" wheel, so depending on which year CB500X you are interested it, it may not even be that guards for older and newer models of the same bike are interchangeable. I am pretty sure that is the case with the Givi, with the TN1171 being offered for later models. It also does not have the cross bar, though I do not think it is compatible with any F models.

Thank you. My cb500f is a 2017. Nice bike. Expensive accessories.
