1979 GL1000 rear wheel spacer part No.42625-371-000

Post by MattTrim »



Hi All, just bought this bike a month ago. When fitting new tires, the mechanic noticed the wheel spacer collar part in the final drive was missing! This is item No.10 on the final drive drawing.
I have searched without success to locate this part. There are not too many of these bikes here in Ireland.
Can anyone out there advise if and where I could find one of these?
Thanks in advance for your advice or assistance.
Regards
Matt

That's definitely a very important part, otherwise a lot of stress gets put on the bearings, and you can't tighten the axle properly.

I had a look around for them without much success. It's just a thick-walled steel tube, so if someone could measure theirs and provide the dimensions, any machine shop could manufacture one easily from bar stock.

Many thanks for your response, very helpful indeed. I will definitely consider this as an option.
I don't know anyone else with a GL1000 at the moment, so if anyone else in the community has those dimensions that would be great or if there was a link to a technical drawing that would also be a winner.
Thank you so much for taking the time and effort to help me, I'm sure your karma account balance has increased. :-)
Regards
Matt
