1983 Aspencade Clutch Question

Post by JuclayNZ »



Hi, I’ve just stripped out the Aspencade clutch and am not sure if there’s a part missing. The item in question is the clutch lifter rod. I’m not sure if it’s meant to be in this model as some parts diagrams show it while others don’t. There is a fair bit of travel on the clutch actuator arm before the slack is taken up which makes me think maybe it should be there. So, any advice is welcome, and if someone can give me the dimensions of said rod that would be great.

Cheers, Jules

Are you talking about part number 22850-MB9-000 ?

Hi, thanks, but that’s not it. The part I’m querying looks more like a short rod that’s rounded at both ends and sits between the engine casing actuator and clutch.

Here's a link to the 83 Aspencade Honda parts diagrams. Clutch parts are on two pages. No rod with rounded ends.

But I can tell you from experience that the 1200s used such a lifter rod.

But when you look at the part numbers, they're the same. So Honda has an error in the fiche. But the diagrams are correct.

Thanks, I think it’s time to do some measuring and get busy with the lathe. It shouldn’t be too difficult to make.

Cheers for the info.

Just checking: your response seems to say that you're going to put a 1200 lifter rod into an 1100. What parts diagrams were you going by where that's the proper part? Because that's not what I saw on the ones I pointed to.

There is no lifter rod in the 83 1100 clutch.


'Impossible' is just a level of difficulty! The only stupid question is the one you didn't ask first!
