Have you asked your local Honda powersports dealer if they can order one for you?

If they turn out to be NLA I have a suggestion: Some years ago someone on CX500forum needed a swingarm boot for his GL500 (same as GL650, CX500E, CX650E but NOT the same as any GoldWing) and found that they were NLA. He took the old one to an auto parts place when they weren't busy and found someone who was willing to look through what they had to find something that could be made to work with a little bit of modification. He bought one' installed it and shared the information with the forum.
When I was putting Eccles (CX650E based winter sidecar machine) together in 2006 I bought the same one and it is still on the bike 18 years later. The fellow who found the one that fits hasn't been on the forum for over 15 years but I've told a lot of people about the one that fits over the years :orange
