Af16 rear axle

Post by Elbowspink » Wed Jul 04, 2018 8:39 am

I messed of the threads on my rear axle and I canÔÇÖt find them anywhere. Just sized up gears and canÔÇÖt get a bolt on the shaft to hold the back wheel on. Any help would be fantastic thanks.

Take the axle to a machine shop to fix. You've done your best so now it's time to have someone help. I'm sure it can be re-threaded. Always use a nut to protect the threads when pressing the gear on/off.

Thanks guys IÔÇÖll end up taking it somewhere but if anyone has a spare that they are willing to sell me let me know. I donÔÇÖt expect it to be cheap but to have an extra would be worth it.

Greetings:

Reminder to everyone that the AF16 rear gear covers and axles came in 2 versions. From 1994-mid '97 the axle had a "skinny" end to fit into a second ball bearing seated in the cover. From mid-'97 to 2001 the axle had a thicker (17mm?) end and ran plain in the aluminum cover, which had a different gasket that routed an oil stream to the socket. Someone (Mousewheels?) once actually posted the engine serial number where Honda-san made the switch to the single-bearing rear cover and fatter axle end.

AF16E-2031630 is the number I remember where the axle/cover changed. Somewhere in the 1998 year model.

Ah, 1998. I stand corrected. Just so Elbows knows which axle he needs... check the cover for 1 or 2 ball bearings.

Yup. I looked and both axles are no longer available from Honda so there's an aftermarket part I've not yet seen. I will try to get some used axles this summer and let the forum know when they would be available. Both kind if possible.

Sign me up for one after youve checked them out. Ive had an af16 case on the shelf for 2yrs now and its about time I start piecing it together. I reluctantly hooked up a forum member with the gears/axle out of it to help get his build going and then he sold it. :confused: I will need to pull the cover to check which axle it needs. Keep us posted, Bones!

Check with rarescooters on ebay. He should have several in both styles unless they've all been sold.
