Re: issues common to EX500 post up known issues(all years)
yeah, general "lack of fuel filter" problems.
+1 to the speedo cable vibrating loose.
another thing I have seen on almost every 500 i've ever looked at are the scratches on the side fairings. When you take off the gas tank, it's almost impossible to avoid scratching your paint unless you have the side fairings masked off. not a 'problem' but definitely a design flaw.
I would call the stock signals a "problem." Popping out the metal bracket part of the stock signal should be a 'must-do' mod IMO.
do craptacular mirrors count as a mechanical problem?
