one requires no real exercise from our skull stuffing.
If you're one of the many who has removed the stock
Honda odometer in favor of a Trail Tech or similar
computer, you don't want to keep flogging the expensive
stock odometer drive unit for nothing. To replace
it, you need a suitable spacer, and Flatland Racing
makes the nicest I've seen. It weighs about the same
as the Honda odometer drive unit, but looks much nicer.
Installation is pretty straight forward and simple,
just remove the front wheel, remove the Honda odometer
drive unit, pop out the seal, insert the seal into
the spacer, put the spacer where the odometer drive
was, and put the wheel back on.

metric hand tools.
suppose the best reason to replace the Honda odometer
drive is to save it for whoever buys your bike later
on. I wanted it for this reason, and because it's
it easier to remove and replace the front wheel without
it. Plus, since the odometer drive is no longer doing
anything, it just doesn't make any sense to to leave
it on the bike. As the photos show, it sure looks
nicer without it!
- Outstanding design
- Very well manufactured
- Beautiful polished finish
- Very reasonably priced
- Allows the expensive Honda odometer drive
to be removed and saved when not using the
(except that it is so highly polished, it's
hard to photograph!)
