I'm still trying to find the source of a noise inthe final drive area of my 85 Aspy the final drive checks out good the front universal is also good I did find cut marks on the left or wheelend of the final drive distance collar I believe thats the correct term it looks like a piece of pipe about 4 inches long goes in the center of the final drive the axle goes through it anyoneknow what would cause those marks on the distance collar? Thanks

What kind of noise and when does it show up? Will it make a noise when hand turning the rear wheel on the center stand?

TJ859, if you are talking about the L/H wheel spacer having marks on it? That would probably from the rear brake caliper, the brakecaliper mounts over that L/H spacer.

Asfar as the noise goes? What type of noise is it? Is it a once per revolution noise or is it faster than wheel rotation?

Are the rear wheel drive bushings worn, rotten, or dry? If so that in itself will make a lot of noise.

Does the noise go away if the wheel is rotated with the brake caliper removed? If so it's probably dragging brakes.

The noise is there if I'm coasting or under powerlike a once per revolution sound.The distance collar I'm talking about goes inside the final drive and the axle goes through it, new SKF bearings installed and rebuilt calipers all around

TJ859, OK, I now understand where those marks are. I sure can't think of anything that comes close to that spacer that would leave those marks. Is it possible they are from vice grips that were used on that spacer at one time?

On your once per rev noise. (something to check)- Those early 1200 Wings had a problem with the wheel hole being machined too large for the wheel bearing so they would snap or click as they rotated. I have seen a service bulletin on that problem but not sure when the cut-off on build date was of it even included the 85. I can't remember where I saw the bulletin but if I can find it I will post it for you. Maybe some of the others here can remember the exact facts on that wheel bearing problem.

TJ859, were those new wheel bearings a tight press fit in the hubs? I believe there were oversized bearings available for the original problem so those could have been tight.

If I'm thinking about the same spacer you're mentioning, it's possible that the marks you're seeing (unless they are pretty deep) might have been made by someone having a hard time getting the rear wheel back on the bike. If you don't have things lined up right it can get pretty tight and someone lacking patience might have tried to hammer the spacer in further or bunged it up with the wheel itself trying to jam it in.

Hi exavid my local honda mech agrees with you the marks on the distance collar could only come from wheel removal or wheel replacement.Thanks for the reply.
