Is there a trick to getting this front wheel off? It seems like the axle and drum are connected?

I got the wheel off but I could use some help on how this axle comes out of the drum please. A tip I found to remove the wheel easier is to air it down so it fits out better.

Crash, the axle is like a long bolt with a nut on the other side, just slip a #3 Phillips screwdriver through the hole on the one side of the axle (IIRC) and use a wrench on the nut on the other side

That did it, just needed a little more leverage. Wasn't rusted at all, just took a little more force.

So the new one is missing a part in the middle. The second picture has it. Can this just come out easily and be put in the new?

No bearings in the brake panel.

Something looks strange in both those pictures but it could just be the angle. Take a picture with something pointing to the part you are referring to. Get a parts picture and look at it.

This picture I have covered the part in green. It is some kind of collar that fits into the drum that the other does not have.

This might show it better. The Red is what I currently have. The Green is what is missing.

Parts fiche doesn't show it as a separate piece and I've never had one that was loose.

Looks like the seal is a different size as well. Could the panel be for a different model perhaps?

Your Red/Green picture shows a -286- bike code part number for the brakeplate....
This is a CB part, intended for an 18" wheel, and while it will fit your CL's 19" wheel hub, it won't read correct speeds
(the CB speedo drive gears are of a differing ratio than the gearing for the CL's 19" rim)....
IIRC,They are also mechanically different so they can not be swapped inadvertently/erroneously which could bind the gears.....

Your "other" brakeplate shows as a -290- bike code (with which I am unfamiliar)....
Memory says the CL plate should be a -291- code (again, IIRC, been a long time since Honda dealership days....)

I was starting to think it was for a diff bike or CB. I ended up cleaning the original, I guess I have a spare CB wheel brake if anyones looking.

You missed my point....Is the wheel you have an 18" or a 19"?

Better yet, Phone if not cost prohibitive....540-525-5199...Steve
