Default U Joint

So how much does a u joint cost for one of these machines? There made out of cast right? For those of you that have broken one have you also streched the eyes on the shafts?

i think the one for the 500 is around $50, the one for the 450 is about $100 I think they are stronger. I haven't torn it down yet to see the damage to the shaft.

It is worth the extra 50 bucks to put the 450 ujoint in your bike they are much stronger

Why is the 450 U-Joint better than the 500 u-joint. Seems it would be the
other way around.

It looks like to me honda had to put not as heavy duty parts in the 500's to make them lighter so that they weight the "600" pounds they want them to weight.
