Front Wheel assembly
« on: May 15, 2020, 04:01:49 PM »
Hi,

respoked my front wheel. I am putting it together but question the locking tabs that i took off. Is this an original OEM to lock the flange nuts to the disk or has someone added that as the nuts i took off where plain nuts

I think its the black side as the chrome ring on speedo drive should stop bolt heads turning, look in manual under wheel dissasembly

Ironically, it's only today that I have removed the disc from my 400, also to have the new rim and spokes fitted. To the best of my knowledge it's the 1st time that the disc has been removed, and I've owned it since 1989, (it's a 1976 model). There were no tab washers under the fixing nuts as they are flange nuts. The tab washers you have pictured would be OK for ordinary plain nuts, but would not do their job properly on flange nuts. If my memory serves me correctly, the last time I saw these was on a CB750 rear sprocket. Just use the flange nuts, making sure that the mating surfaces are nice and clean and use a torque wrench for the required tightness. If ever we get back on the road, looks like it could be a good year for shiny wheels!!! Regards, Mick.

The lock tabs are from the CB350 Four. used with plain nuts.

The CB400F did not use the tabs, they only had the Flanged nuts.
