Hi people. i had the wheel off the other day for a tyre change and found i also need a final drive flange, the bit that bolts to the wheel. i cant find one anywhere. I was offered the flange bit for £50+VAT online but dont want to pay out that much. Do these parts wear alot and is there and equiveant i can use.

Its bad cos i have an MOT in 2 weeks.

If anyone has one can i buy it off you?

This is the part for which Honda specifies the high moly grease, because it's a severe service application. Many of our old bikes went many miles without this special lube there, and then worn out teeth result. They should be cleaned and relubed each time the rear tire is replaced. It's best to replace them as a set. Good used ones should not be too difficult to find, except you have jinxed yourself by telling the gremlins you need a set fast.

International shipping wouldn´t be a good idea in your case (both costs and time).



Over the years I´ve bought some complete CX rear wheels (most of them with good rubber, so well worth the money) and also one or two separate driven flanges (eBay Germany). Most of them sold by now.



It shouldn´t take long to find one in decent shape on eBay UK. I don´t know about prices for such stuff in UK, but I´ve been selling some in my country for similar money as you mentioned. In perfect condition, of course. I´ve never had a disappointed buyer, yet.



I´m away from home, right now, for nearly another week, so can´t toss one in a bag and forward it, even if we had agreed on a price, which seems not very likely.



Sture

I seem to remember someone (it may have been Kingston??) buying an atv part off ebay that he thought was the same as that rear drive gear for the wheel and I think it turned out that it was the same.

I did a quick search but could not find it,,I will look again,,



edit,,I found the thread,,but he does not say if the part fit or not.

Yep, that was me and it was just pure luck I found it, the seller mislabeled it but it did fit. To find that I searched ebay for "final drive flange" and just looked at all the pictures until I found one that looked correct. At the time there weren't too many and it may be easier to just buy an entire rear wheel. If you look at the thread Allan posted you can see what a good and bad flange look like. Good luck!
