We have a winner. Thanks to Western Honda, we now know your VIN # does not use the disc C.

According to Honda, there are two different disc sets for the '98 model year.

nope. '97 to '00 all clutch discs were upgraded for all GL1500 engines. check the link I provided for partzilla, only one set if offered.

The on-line parts lists are truncated.
If you want the whole truth have your dealer check their fiche, you'll be amazed at the changes made during a model year that don't show up on-line.

Advise given here is free and comes with no warranty "Caveat emptor"

Well, I just got off the phone with a Honda parts guy and he seems to think otherwise. He gets his info from American Honda.

Do you have a link to support your theory? Your last link wasn't a link.

not a theory. article in motorcycle consumer news by Fred Raue stated certain items in the GL1500 engine where upgraded to handle the additional HP/torque of the Valkyrie engine in '97. I know all the valve springs were updated and the clutch discs where all changed to the same material. '96 and older some discs were one one material and others where also different. Now they are all the same material as barret clutches.

That was a link all that had to be done was add www. I didn't have enough posts at the time so wasn't allowed to post a complete link.

see both clutch disc and only '97-'00 GW and Valkyries are listed. all can be back fitted to the earlier yrs.



here u can see '96 valve springs are not avail

Is that a better source than Honda?

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.
