Part: Locking Tank Latch for Honda CB175 / CL175 / CB200 / CL200 / CB350 / CL350 / CB360 / CL360 / CB450 / CL450 / CB500K / CB550 / CB750 motorcycles.
Why You Need This: The locking tank latch was a dealer offered option back in the day. That is why you will see an original one every now and then on a CB350, CB360 or CB450. In fact this latch will fit any Honda gas tank that uses the flip style gas cap. It is also the perfect solution if you are missing the original tank latch or if the latch on your tank is broken. Additionally, this locking tank latch will work with any Honda key. So if you have changed out the CB360 key switch or CB350 / CB450 key switch, you will be OK. While you are at it might as well change out that cracked gas cap seal and get some fresh front (CB350/360) (CB450) and rear tank rubbers to hold your tank in place.
Installation Tip: The original tank latch must be removed in order to install the locking tank latch. Use a very small punch to tap out the retaining pin / rivet. The new latch installs with a very thin screw, make sure to put a little anti-seize on the threads so that it can be removed in the future. Keep the lock and latch lubricated so it will not become jammed.
