Final drive vent cap

Postby Bikerdave79 » Tue Jun 07, 2016 7:07 am



Final drive cap. Missing from my bike. I can't seem to find anywhere that sells a replacement. And I don't want to shell out big money for another final drive. Where should I look? Is there something else I can use? I just dont want water getting in there.

CMSL has a new cap if you want one. every rear end from 76 on has this cap, plus its most Honda rear ends. This cap is also used as a valve cover tappet on some of the Hondas. Salvage find should be easy on this one. Should be a find at the local Honda shop too.

Here is some information you may enjoy, you have 3 options that cap is the same cap as the one on the rear of the engine for at stator cover and it is also the same cap at the clutch plate cover, check it out....I got a clutch cover off ebay real cheap once just to get a replacement cap for the stator cover location, some buggered it up pretty good before I got the bike... this information is good to know.... :D
