Having removed my rear wheel on my 1984 honda goldwing 1200 interstate to work on exhaust system, I am now putting it back on and I am wondering if the the hub assembly is supposed to when fully engaged ,engage the drive unit where the dust cover actually covers a portion of the hub.
Model: Goldwing Interstate
Does the small lip insert into the drive unit dust cover/
Hi, My name isXXXXX you for letting me try and assist you with your problem.The short answer is yes.The dust cover should just cover a small portion of the hub to keep rocks and dirt from getting in and ruining thd splines.
Is it possible that the O-ring past the spline isn't fully seated yet as the space between the hub and dust cover is only fractional allowing for a slight gap between hub and dust cover.
That's kind of a trick question.That bike is old enough the rubber cover could be dried and shrunk up just a little from the heat and time since new.I'm not sure what o-ring you're talking about though. Once that thing is put together on the splines and it's greased up you can tighten it and check it for any wobble.The amount of coverage was extremely minimal when new so if it's close to that or next to it I'd say you're probably fine.
Your probably right. I'll tighten up everything per specs and see how that goes. The O-ring I am referring to is located on the hub wheel side of the splines . Thanks
You're welcome.Let me know if you need anything else.
