is the tongued washer on rear wheel the only way?
« on: November 21, 2020, 12:39:41 pm »
I'm putting the finishing touch on my 77 550 rear wheel and i'm wondering if the tongued washers that hold the sprocket on can be eliminated and replaced with red loctite? I would have to destroy the paint in order to fold them.

NOT red.

Red too strong? I could use blue?

Thanks for your response!

Bend tangs at 45 degree, then use pliers on tang and nut.

I often use a plain washer with nylock nuts and a drop of blue loctite.

Should be able to bend those washers without damaging paint...all you have to do is get enough purchase to use a punch and tap with a hammer into place.  Are new washers not available from Honda?  I know the 750 ones are.

Or do like the racers do and drill your nuts and safety wire
If it works good, it looks good...

Unfortunately no longer available for the 550. Thanks!

Red is reserved for things that are not removed very often. Red usually requires the application of heat to release.

You can use red but need do so very sparingly. Same thing applies to other strong permanent thread lockers. I do it all the time and have no problem removing stuff. It takes CDF, skill not so much LOL You can also drill and safety wire. Lock-nuts work good too.
