Felt washers

Postby Stephen » Sat May 16, 2009 4:51 pm



I think that I may have a small problem. As I was removing the center bolt for the main throttle spring the felt washer that is behind the throttles spring fell out. It was ripped and crushed :cry: so it looks like whoever worked on this last did not make sure it was in properly. Where can I find replacement for this? Or do I have to try and manufacture my own. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What year/model is your bike? That would have some bearing on what my decision would be (replace/fabricate).

Hmm...I suspect the chances of coming across that exact washer at a Honda dealer is pretty slim. If you can measure it, your best bet is probably to find a reasonable replacement, somewhere like here.
