The pin on the shaft (on the inside of the back cover) that drives the CDI unit, broke off.
Does that pin tap out? If it does, it is a very, very tight fit.
Does anyone have any idea where I can get a shaft or pin?? (other than Honda--my credit line is not high enough to buy the shaft from Honda) Thanks, again, Lew

Hi Lew, the parts guide, calls out a 3 X 5.2 mm pin, PN 30905-216-000, it would be a pretty tight fit. Do support the shaft if you can to prevent bending it while knocking the pin out. Service Honda has the pin for $1.31 Better Luck

Greetings Jack, I (finally) got another CDI drive shaft (complete with a pin) and am still having a problem with that dowel pin. I cannot find where it goes. A long pin comes out of the rear cover to position the plastic spacer and pulse generator assembly. The spark advancer firmly locks into a pin on the drive shaft. There is no hole, for the dowl pin, in either the spacer or the spark advancer. I don't see any need for that dowl pin or any place to insert it. Can you shed any light. Thanks, Lew

Lew, unless the dowell pin is already in place, there should be a very obvious hole in the backing plate, it keeps the spark advancer lined up.

Lew I'm guessing this is for a GL1100. I had to go look at some other post you've made. Heres the picture. I hope it helps.

Greetings----That is my problem. There is no hole in either the plastic spacer or spark advancer. The spark advancer is held firm by a knotch in the edge and a pin on the drive shaft. I did check the engine number and it is definately a 1981 engine. Is it possible that the 1981 used a different design???? Thanks, lew
