PostSubject: Ordered New Drive Belt and Rollers/Pins   Fri 18 Apr 2014, 12:12

About the only thing I have left to do on my "new" 08 Wing is the drive belt and rollers/pins. I ordered them this morning from Larson Cycle in Cambridge, MN for just under $200. It will take about 4-5 days for them to arrive. I will change both and keep the old belt as a spare. It looks like it's in real good shape but looks can be deceiving. The Wing has 18,245 miles on it and I don't know when the belt was changed, or if it ever has been. So, to be safe rather than sorry I will change it and have an old one as a spare. Then I can write down the mileage in my aCar phone app and have it alert me when the time is getting close to put in a new belt.

I've also got to put together some sort of tool kit to carry in the bike. It didn't come with one and I'm not sure if my sister ever had it. I have some old plastic tool boxes that will work and I'll just carry that under the seat. I have plenty of extra wrenches, sockets and screw drivers to make up a kit.

Even tho I can't ride it much yet I still can enjoy getting it, and myself, ready.

Here is a link to the Tool Kit that was originally supplied with the early SWings.
The Partzilla prices are notably better than local Honda dealers.

+1 on taking your belt case off now and cleaning things up so that you are ready to go when your new parts arrive. It's not like it's going to stop snowing up there anytime soon;)

My tool kit they gave me was so bad I'm not even sure what I could have done with it. I think it was a really cheap screwdriver and I think some kind of socket that may fit a sparkplug but the sparkplugs on the SWing are down about 5-6" so it wouldn't work. I put a pictorial for replacing the belt so you should read that a couple of times. It is really easy but just will take about an hour your first time to get used to removing the parts.

I just use an electric impact wrench I got at Harbor Freight for $40 and it works great.

Just did mine this morning. New Honda belt and 26 gram Dr Pulley sliders. All was in good shape but lots of belt dust to clean out. My 2004 has 15K miles on it. Have not yet checked the old belt to see if it is within spec. All went smoothly. There is a good video on YouTube that shows the process.

I talked to my sister about an hour ago, 5 PM, and she said that the guy she bought it from put in a new belt and sliders so I will at least have a brand new set when I have to change this one in about 10,000 or so miles. I've had the covers off and looked at the belt. There wasn't any dust that I could see and the belt looked brand new. So it looks like he did change everything he said he changed. My sister also said that before he sold it to her he was going to take a long trip on it. Unless he was lying through his teeth everything should be good to go.

I'm also going to go through my metric tools and work up a tool kit to keep in the Wing. I have enough doubles of wrenches, sockets etc. to make up a pretty good tool kit. I also put a throttle lock on it today. I've had them on three of my other bikes and like them a lot. It went on pretty easy with a bit of filing to get the tab to fit between the brake and throttle cables. It works great now. And I can check my speedo against my GPS and see how close they are.

I also hooked up a USB cable from the battery to the handle bars to power my phone while riding. That also works. My homemade mount also fits and holds the phone at the proper angle to see well. Now I can text and surf while riding and crash into other cars and trees. Just kidding... Mad 

I was able to take it out for a ride today too. Sunday they are talking temps around 70 so there goes another ride. Not exactly where I'll go but there's lots of roads in MN to ride on.

Dale,

If you need a good GPS mount you should get in touch with DennisB.  I had his mount and it was great.  Just a thought.

I can beat that. The "tool Kit" that came with my '12 SWing was the typical phillips screwdriver & handle, enclosed in the typical plastic sheath which was also packed with a piece of foam. I guess Honda wanted the kit to be easier to find in the dark in case I needed something to scratch my *ss with while waiting for a tow.

Needless to say, I made up my own tool kit.

You need to add a 10 mm socket on a 3" extension to work the spark plug wrench.

I had the same "tool kit" come with my 2007.
It's laughable that they even included it
A cost cutting move on their part .

Actually, with the OEM tool kit shown on the Partzilla link above, the spark plug tool (which others have described as lame) is intended so that the kit's 10/12 box wrench can be used. Think leverage.
