|Comment||Thank you very much Bill...I have zero knowledge, or ability to do any kind of repairs. That's why I always take my bike to a shop.. Your helpful answer confirms what I logically concluded on my own. I'm going back to the shop, and hopefully they will re-check the work they did and not charge me anything additional. Your site is wonderful, and I will go there first with any future questions.. Thanks again for such a speedy response Gene|

Need help with vintage Hondas from the 1960s? I am an expert with 250-305cc bikes in particular and most all of the other pre-91 models, in general. I do NOT claim to have a great deal of experience on Gold Wings, Cruisers, ATC/ATVs and dirt bikes.
I have owned/ridden/maintained Honda motorcycles for 35 years. I have written five books on Honda repairs and collecting. I was a service manager for two Honda shops back in the 1980s.
