    Honda Grommet 17247-240-000 for side covers ($1.50 ea. from 4into1)

    I was having a terrible time getting my side covers off (without cracking them) while working on the bike. I had used grease on the grommets and different prying methods, but it was tough and I felt like it didn't make sense that they were so hard to get on and off.

    I ordered new Honda Grommets (P/N 17247-240-000 @$1.50 each) from 4into1 to see if that would help. Here is what I found:

    • The rubber really wasn't much softer, I expected the old grommets to be age hardened.
    • The new ones were the specified Honda part number for my CL350 K4 but were much smaller appearing than the originals. They did fit like a glove in the old grommet holes.
    • The side covers are now significantly easier to get on and off

    I think it was a good buy. New on the left and old on the right.
