Default air cooled wheels in lc

Hi There,

I am trying to fit some aircooled hubs into my lc.
Front hub is twin disc, i assume rd, rear is drum brake rd.

Has any one here done this conversion, if so what spacers etc are needed.
Would like to run the speedo lc drive aswell,

The front also has early rz forks.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Kris

Hi Kris,

Your front hub is probably an XS650 hub. The RD AC hub was only a single disc hub.

You will need to make up some 'top hat' spacers. The axle is a puny 12mm and the bearings are bigger in ID, so the top hat spacer takes up the slack and centres the wheel.

As for the speedo drive - dunno. I use a Trailtech Vapor dash on my race LC which has a tacho, water temp etc and has a speedo using a magnetic sender(which I don't use). They are cheap ($130) and easy to fit so why not try one of them?

From memory, the RD rear hub bearings are the correct size for the LC axle, so you only need a plain spacer on each size of the hub. If you like, I can measure up the spacers and post up.

Cheers,
Lech

Thanks Lech.

I had a feeling rd's were single disc.
If you could get me the dimensions of the spacers that would be good...

Cheers Kris

On the rear, I use only one spacer. That is on the brake side. The spacer is 37.8 long, 30.0 OD, 15.2 ID.

I have a different front hub, so I can't help you there.

Nice 350lc.
Any chance you can share some details on the spacers etc needed.
Does it run the lc speedo drive.

The front hub was originally fitted to an XS650 & is wider than an LC so spacers are smaller but to be honest I cannot remember the exact sizes.
IIRC the speedo drive was machined down by about 4mm.
Rear hub is from an aircooled RD but I do not know which exact model.
Spacers were standard LC on the sprocket side & a slightly longer than standard LC one on the brake plate side.
Sorry I cannot be more specific but the wheels are no longer fitted to the LC but now reside in my TZ replica build.
