Is there a good shop in this area that has done any transmission work on a Silver Wing around Clearwater or St Pete Florida? model28a check you pms I think you are the one to guide me here. Need to have the final drive shaft and the case bearing replaced. Clutch I rebuilt but not able to do the transmission.

These two are what Honda calls Level 5 powerhouse dealerships.
They are likely to have the most experienced mechanics of any Honda Dealer.
I don't know if my old friend Danny LaBoy is still working as the service manager
in the Winter Haven store, but I always remember he treated people fairly and ethically.

Magoo Triker, I just spent 45 minutes typing a reply and lost it, so I'll make this short.
Call Robert at Seminole Scooters 727-526-3000,  http://seminolescooters.com/
He is the only person I will trust to work on my scooter.(well other than bigbird or myself) If you go to him and are not happy with his work and price you can ridicule me right here for all to see. That is how much faith I have in his work. Smile

Thanks Roger.. I will give him a call later this week. I will remove the trike kit and ride it there as a scooter.

Robert is an authorized dealer/installer for the Yelvington trike so your kit would not be a problem for him. But I am sure you will save some money in labor by removing your kit first. I'm confident you will be happy with his work.

I just talked to him on the phone and told him what I have done and he thinks the same as I do. I am going to order shaft, bearing, seals for the main and any thing else he said he will have. He said to call him ahead of bringing the scooter in a day or two. May be the week after next I will leave it with him. I have the Honda Reflex to ride while she is out.

Thanks again Roger
