Was that on her Honda?

My apology Claudio as I just read your post tonight.   Yes it was on Junes Honda 650 Four.   I thought this bike would be impossible to find parts for as I am guessing many simply got scrapped or are leaning against the outside of a barn.
Just an update,  Honda has of course discontinued everything but the bearings which arrived in Maple Ridge yesterday.  We found the speedo housing in PA and likely another week to arrive here.   We found the spacer/collar in Boise Id. and it should also be here next week.

June had the Honda when I met her and to the best of my recollection has only had oil and filter changes every year and the odd battery and brakes but has never broke.
At least it found its way home safely.

For what it is worth June and I first went to her Honda shop in Maple Ridge and only went to Ebay for what they could not assist with to search for the other parts. It is important we keep our local folks in business when possible.

John, that was Ron's (kilowop) inquiry about the Honda speedo drive, not mine.

That is some big damage to the speedo drive.  It would almost have had to spin with the wheel for that kind of damage to occur.  The locating tooth on the drive doesn't look damaged....is the corresponding pin/bracket on the fork in ok shape?
Always nice to be able to track down spares like you did. Smiley

I was able to get a speedo drive replacement for the '83 GS-750-T I had from the salvage shop up in Williams Lake.  NEW LIFE CYCLES & Salvage ltd.  Good guy to deal with.  I also obtained a replacement speedo for my '80 GS-1000-G in May of 2009, and it's still working fine. I also deal with my local shops as much as possible since if you 'don't' when you REALLY need their help, they won't be there.
Ride On !

Everything else looks good on the rest of the  front end so once all the parts are in it should snap back together easy.  I will take a couple test rides and make sure everything seems friction less and tight before handing it back over to June so she can ride it for another 36 years.

June and I were just talking about the Honda repair and I need to post a couple of positive things this little problem has given me.

In the old days when this bike was new it was not a very popular bike and hence many disappeared from life as do many recreational vehicles that have reduced or stopped mobility for one reason or another.  In the old days even when parts where abundant there is a good chance June or I would have taken or towed it to the Honda shop to be repaired and my best guestimate with labour would be 400 to 600 bucks. The downtime seemed to be never less than a week unless it was a simple oil change. Even then if the dealer did not have parts it could be a week or longer to get them in.  I think we mostly accepted that as normal and I am sure still happens to newer bikes ( I almost hate to use Shawns bike as an example but I have heard of others in shops for a month )  The above I would think to be as a negative experience yet one we accept. 

So I said to June today this is a positive experience with her Honda.   First we got the bike back to our home and did not tow it to a shop to diagnose as we may have done in our younger days. It took me some time to get used with the internet taking my money however I must say I have rarely had a bad transaction that I can recall so far.  Honda had the first shot after looking at the greasy bag of worn out parts and picked the ones they could order for us. As mentioned previously I found one part in Boise and the others in PA after a few days of shopping on the net.   Honda parts arrived Tuesday, Boise arrived Tuesday and PA arrived today.  With the currency conversion we are still a bit under 200 bucks Canadian. Another positive for me is the speedo drive was dull and blemished which of course is like feeding candy to a child with me as most of you know.  So next step is pour a glass of wine turn on the stereo and carefully replace the parts and remount the wheel at my pace and my time.  When the job is completed I know the mechanic and know everything is tightened up properly.  After completion I can pour another glass of wine turn the stereo down a bit and pull up my roll chair and stair at the bike that was not " running when parked" and enjoy its beauty to my eye knowing the two of us would continue to get great pleasure from the machine in the future.

Ken that is exactly the bike she has.     Very good to know however as you never know what could go next.     Do you have lights seat and everything or just frame and wheels?

Thanks John

Beautiful day here in Squish today.  Sweetums took the doggies for a walk while I went for a workout first thing.  Then we took the bikes and headed up towards Pemberton for a nice morning ride.  We stopped at Green Lake for a quick photo and some axx relief, then went on to the Pemberton golf course for an early lunch.  (First photo is Sweetums on her KZ550 at Green Lake with Whistler Blackcomb in the background.  Second photo is the scenery at the Pemberton gold course.)  I had a burger with Pemberton potato salad and Sweetums had the Pemberton beet salad.  While we were there a group of about a dozen or so Harley riders came in from Chilliwack on their way up to Clinton for an overnighter.  All older guys and gals...not a youngster among them.  On the way back we stopped at a bike repair shop in Squish owned by a former Harley mechanic.  He has a shop full of Harleys along with a few Buells.  Nice young guy.  I think I'll get him to put the tires on my rechromed rims.
