This drive gear change is about lowering the engines RPM’s.
So I tested the RPM’s at the speeds I normally have to use on these California Freeways to avoid getting run over.

My bike uses a ‘Dakota Digital Speedo Healer”

When I started my “Before testing” according to my GPS.
The Speedo was off by 1-2MPH (it’s been over 10 years since it was first calibrated)
So my first step was to re-calibrate my speedo.


OEM Drive readings.
70MPH -3100RPM's
80MPH - 3600RPM
90MPH - 4000RPM's

After I installed the Modified Drive.One of the things I discovered is.
My Calibrated Speedo was now 13MPH lower than with the OEM Drive! (GPS Verified)
I re-Calibrated it again. To run the After tests.

Modified Drive readings.
70MPH = 2600RPM
80MPH = 2900RPM
90MPH = 3300RPM

What I was able to observe so far,

1. The GL1800 engine has gobs of Torque to accelerate in any gear.
2. With the taller gears, you can linger in any gear longer while the RPM's aren't climbing as fast as the OEM drive ratio.
3. I had no problem rolling on the throttle in OD.(although
4. I played with dropping to 4th to feel the difference now?
5. In 4th gear it feels like the OEM drive in 5th. (Snappy acceleration if you want it to pass a slow moving convoy of cages/bikes).
6. Then when I up shifted to 5th. the bike accelerated once again.(at a slower rate than when in 4th gear)
7. You'll need to re-calibrate the speedo, via a speedo Healer - if you don't own one now? (Add a healer to your final conversion cost)

This new “Modified Ring & pinion Drive” is what we have all been asking for from Honda for years. "A 6th Gear”
Only with this new Drive.
Its Better in every gear.(Because Theoretically - Every gear is now taller)
Not just OD. (Meaning there is less need to shift as quickly in lower gears, to reduce engine RPM's)
Less wear and tear on clutch/transmission -The Rider!
I liken it to buying a new bike, just for the cost of a Drive!.
"Trust me - I was a skeptic myself, until I installed a new drive”


My Conclusion after my 5 test rides.
Now that I'm getting used to the RPM's at different speeds. I feel like this is a totally different bike to ride now.

I have to re-Learn what the much quieter Engine is telling me as far as where the engine RPM note is now, at certain speeds!.
Or I'll be riding faster than it would be prudent to do. (Even though I have very good counter measures)

What about Mileage?
Unfortunately, I have no patients for riding the same speed forever to see “what kind of fuel mileage” I'll get on a tank of fuel.

I go by trying to keep my bike in the sweet spot Rpm's of 3300-3400 if I wanted to save fuel?.

This tells how many miles I get from one tank to the next.
I barely get 150 miles out of a tank. (never running it to the last drop after the low fuel light comes on)
It will be interesting to see how many miles per tank it changes on my bike/my riding style? (During my next tank to tank average?)


The Fact is--
These GL1800's go from sipping fuel under 34-3500 Rpm's,
To gulping it down above 3500 Rpm's.

The Modified drive will save fuel riding under 90MPH.
Even better if riding under 70-80MPH.

It's a final drive replacement for a wing with different gear ratio. Supposed to improve gas milage and lowers RPM at 70 MPH speeds

The article is from Wing World Sept 2020 but not the point.
I'm trying to find out if anyone has any experience with this final drive replacement.

That's probably an ad wrote to look like an article.

I received my final drive, from Henry, a couple weeks ago. I got her installed, calibrated the speedo and calibrated my gear indicator. I've only got about 200 smiles on it so far.

My observations:
I could care less about MPG or Top Speed.
First gear twitchiness ... Gone.
First gear is now functional, no need to start in second anymore.
No more shifting during a left hand turn. (I hated that)
All gears are smoother.
Fifth Gear is now OD.
I rarely felt the need for fifth until I hit the highway.
No more trying to hit Phantom Sixth Gear.
I am new to GL1800 but this resolves my number one complaint.
I always thought it was geared to high.

I am extremely pleased!

Sometimes WingWorld contacts me wanting me to write an "article" about JustWings too. The cost prohibits me from writing one. If Henry authored it, he probably paid a good some of money to have it published.

Me too. My dealings with WingWorld over the last couple of years, both as someone they are trying to sell advertising space to (oh, sorry, I mean "write an article for"), and in another capacity that I won't get into publicly here, has so soured me on GWRRA as an organization that I actually dropped our membership this year.

I just ask if anyone had any experience with Henry's final drive. I didn't want all of this rhetoric about an article or the GWRRA.

Well, seeing as WingAdmin is the owner and only moderator of GoldwingDocs, I would guess that he can post all the "rhetoric about an article or the GWRRA" that he wants too, wouldn't you say?

I've been considering doing the same. I'm nearing being a 20 member which will then give me cheaper membership from then on, but even at less rate, I'm trying to justify it's value.

The article was not an advertisement. As a satisfied customer, Steve asked Henry if he was ready for wider exposure and asked Wing World if they'd be interested in an article about it. It was supposed to be in the August issue, but since August was going to be digital-only, Steve asked that it be moved to the September issue. Henry did not initiate the article, nor did Wing World reach out to him to "advertise" his modified drive.

Also, I can attest to dmessick811's description of the changes. I've had the same responses on mine.

Yet, he's the only 'author' of the article, written in the first person.

:?:


I'm quite certain he'll get much more than he paid in 'ad costs' when it's all said and done.

For those that might be looking for a rear gear in the used market, now you know why prices have substantially jumped in recent months.

Thank you for clearing that up pwjohnson041.

And thanks to Steve Clayton for making the effort to have that article written and put in the Wing World.
I communicated with Steve about the article. He asked me to tell you all that it was not an advertisement and Henry paid nothing for it.
Steve had written a previous article for Wing World about doing the US Four Corners Ride. He asked Wing World if they wanted an article on the modified final drive and they said yes. So, what is in the magazine is what he and Henry collaborated on.

If any of you that are still in GWRRA are interested in reading the article, it is on page 50 of the September 2020 issue.

Henry Park's final drive is a solidly built and reliable drive.

So did you order one? Did you get your answer?
Did you read the writeups on the GLforum link of those that have gotten one?

I personally spoke with Henry last week --
We had a nice conversation about his final drive ; the number of years he spent developing it; the few different iterations he created before settling on this one -
What I could expect and the warranty as well-
he seemed genuine and honest --
I ordered one - I will let you know how it works out --
I already own 2 final drives - 1 on my bike with 62,000+ miles on it and a trike take off of near 1000 miles -
This is going to be an experiment for me -- it MAY (?) put undue stress on my transmission (Henry felt otherwise but he is biased) --
I will report as best as I can once I get it done in organized -
I will try to document the process and results for anyone who would want to know -

Disclaimer : I am not associated with Henry or his company in any way -
I am not a mechanic nor engineer
I like to try new things -- I once put a car tire on my bike too (for 30,000 miles)

Watch here for more details I suppose ?

I personally spoke with Henry last week --
We had a nice conversation about his final drive ; the number of years he spent developing it; the few different iterations he created before settling on this one -
What I could expect and the warranty as well-
he seemed genuine and honest --
I ordered one - I will let you know how it works out --
I already own 2 final drives - 1 on my bike with 62,000+ miles on it and a trike take off of near 1000 miles -
This is going to be an experiment for me -- it MAY (?) put undue stress on my transmission (Henry felt otherwise but he is biased) --
I will report as best as I can once I get it done in organized -
I will try to document the process and results for anyone who would want to know -

Disclaimer : I am not associated with Henry or his company in any way -
I am not a mechanic nor engineer
I like to try new things -- I once put a car tire on my bike too (for 30,000 miles)

Watch here for more details I suppose ?


Hmmmm.
No credits?????

No quite sure what you are asking 🤔
You copied that didn't you?
