Some wear on my 86 SEI's final drive noted on rear tire install no lube from PO. I see some on ebay etc. Some say 84-87 fitment. Anyone know for sure which will work?

That sounds about right, but I am still somewhat of a novice on what interchanges on years. I still have my final drive, swing arm and brake caliper from where mine was triked @ 35K miles, if you are needing one.

You can use a 1500 final drive and wheel too, just drill holes on swingarm/shaft bigger for 1500 bolt size.

Rob-pm'd you regarding that yes interested...
Newday...thanks for the info, intereseting but would rather find a matching part so no meddling around required. Good to know though for future. Are the 1500 tire wheel sizes the sam as the 1200's if not any issues changing. Handling,noise etc.

Thanks-will do. PO never lubed have a clunk everytime I take off from stop. (Unless I ride the clutch that is) I like jumping off the line and it's a little unnerving. Also wondering about kind of a clunk or rattle over bumps on highway like when pavement is bad and you hit raised section every 20 feet. Feels like trunk is moving around yet no play tugging on it etc. Wondering if noise sensation is also from drive. Wheel side teeth looked ok but drive not so good-all from no lube-what an ass the PO was. Lots of stupid stuff like this wrong with bike mostly fixed now. BTW have recently installed new head bearings, serviced forks/bearings good, installed progressive front springs, new swing arm bearings and new rear wheel bearings since zI was right there.

are the shock bushings good? That possibily will give you that clunk. Check top and bottom. There was a post on that recently. Did you pull out the driveline and check the u-joint and lube the front splines too? Does it clunk when you let off the gas? U-joint will do that.
Happy Thanksgiving

U joint ok I think and no clunk when letting off. Was planning on checking shock bushings. Had my mechanic do the rear stuff as did not want to mess around with tire change he siad he checked 'em but not so sure. I have grabbed shocks and tugged on 'em but I know that's probly not enuff. Shock bushings are exactly what it would feel like-thanks for reminding me, Again I had suspected that but as the mechanic said the were ok I kinda forgot about it. Partially my fault as I had him do the work when he was very busy. He is normally not like that and I try to do as much of my own work as time allows but this 1200 has been a little needy. Low miles but years of neglect-makes me angry when people aquire things, let them go to hell and then still expect mint condition price-remember just reading another post to that effect mentioned boat etc. and it was right on!

First, don't be so sure all years are the same. I hear that "fits 84~87" all the time and in so many cases it's wrong. Look up the part numbers.

You are going to have to take the back of the bike apart yourself and find out what the problem is, if there is one.

Why ain't we ridin'?

Yup agreed-believe it is 2 probs though, clunk in final drive and road noise I believe may be the shock bushings will check tomorrow. Best bet would be to get one off another SEI-no messing around. Anyone have that post about the shock bushings handy?
As to there being a problem - there is. Already saw worn teeth in final drive teeth so nothing to guess about. Not certain it's causing the clunk and may keep current drive installed for few seasons yet but would like a backup.
