I have a Honda Goldwing Aspencade 1100cc. I want to remove front fender to repaint.
How do you remove the guide that the speedometer cable goes thru? It is on the left side.
It is an oblong circle, maybe 5/8" x 1/4"

Looking at the parts manual, there doesn't seem to be a fastener associated with it (item 1 in the diagram). I suspect it may be just a press fit?

OK, I just went down and took a look at mine. If you feel on the inside of the fender where the grommet (the wire guide) pushes through, you can feel that it splits into two. Push the two pieces together, and it makes it small enough that it can be pulled through from the outside of the fender.
