Need: oil locking piece

Post by FLoldguy » Tue Jan 12, 2016 11:44 pm

Fork rebuild on hold. I need a "oil locking piece " for my 1982 GL1100i . Part was left out by whoever did the last rebuild. Just finished the left fork and all parts were present. Missing from the right fork. Does anyone have one of these available? Not available as new. Item #13 on fork fiche. Part # 51432-438-671 .

Regards, FLoldguy

Hopefully someone will know the part that will work. I would start my search with checking other Honda front forks of that same vintage. I looked up the part number 51432-438-671 and learned that it is also used on y 81 Honda CBX and unavailable. Got to be very careful not to loose it the next time the forks are disassembled.

One thought are you rebuilding the forks for maintenance or because it was leaking. I wonder if the part might not be in the bottom of the fork and just did not come out when the bolt in the center bottom was unscrewed and taken out.

There is a Honda vintage group that may be able to help and then there are the various salvage yards. You might have to buy a complete fork to get the part you want.

If all else fails you might contact Louis Ministrone at
Tell him the part number and where it goes in the front fork and that on the parts fiche it is number 12. Louis is not cheap and you will have to call him, you can't just order off the website. His service is usually quick and good. Again he may only want to sell you a total used fork and he may have the OEM part in a brand new package.
