12251-MG1-405 GASKET, CYL HD $47.75 + shipping from
http://www.servicehonda.com

http://www.ronayers.com says it has been superseded by
Parts found with Part Number: 12251-MG1-405
Description *061A1-MG1-405
Price $53.85

You can of course also order it from any Honda dealer but it's a
good bet that when you add their markup and sales tax it will be
cheaper to buy online. Service Honda is the cheapest place online
that I have found for OEM Honda parts.

If I was taking the head off I would buy the complete top end
gasket kit ("GASKET KIT A" IIRC), it's not much more expensive
than the head gasket alone, and you get all the valve seals, etc.
that are going to be in pretty bad shape after 25 years... hmmm.

After looking again at Service Honda's site, I see that 061A1-MG1-405
_IS_ "GASKET KIT A" so if Ron Ayers is selling it for $53.85 I'd
jump on that, because Service Honda wants $136.10 for the complete
kit.

It totally mystifies me why this sort of question comes up so often.
Sure, there are cases where the manufacturer has discontinued a
particular part, but this isn't one of them. For some reason a lot
of folks seem to have an aversion to going to the dealership. Even
more inexplicable to me is that these same people also seem to have
unrealistic expectations about aftermarket suppliers being able to
supply esoteric parts many years after the bike was discontinued.

Take a look at the date I posted my message. It was almost five years
ago. Five years ago you could probably still buy that particular
gasket from Honda. It's not surprising to me, that not every part for
a 30 year old bike that was only made for a single model year is not
available any more.

Walk into any Honda dealer and ask for anything for a 1985 V65 Magna. I won't
have to tell you, they will.

They may say "We'll have to order that" and if you say "Go ahead and order it",
a couple of weeks later they'll tell you that it's no longer available from
Honda. Same thing they'll tell you about a 1982 CB1000 head gasket.

That's not a 10 year-old bike, it's a 23 year-old bike, so you're not
being consistent, are you?

I'd expect that. I wouldn't expect many dealers to devote shelf space to
gaskets for relatively unpopular bikes that are nearly a quarter-century
old.

An OEM head gasket for a 1982 CB1000 is available, price
US$14.47+carriage, from BikeBandit. Are we feeling foolish yet?

Incidentally, the firm can also offer an OEM head gasket for a V65 Magna
can be had for US$29.98, OEM, carriage extra. Plus loads of other bits

What you've highlighted is the inadequacy of some (many?) Honda dealers,
*not* Honda's spares back-up.

Yeah, I guess you are but you'll never admit it.

The fact is that Honda does not support the older bikes. I never said the parts
aren't out there because they are. You just won't get them from a Honda dealer
from Honda stock.

Ford doesn't support the Model T anymore but you can still get any part you
need. You just won't get it from Ford. And you may pay through the nose to get
it.

And some of the parts aren't out there anywhere. Find an ignition module for an
85 Magna. Or something common, like a gas tank or a side cover.

Yes, you *will*,if you use a good dealer. Once again, you are confusing
an idle dealer's policy with that of Honda itself. This crucial
difference has already been pointed out to you and you are choosing to
ignore it.

I acknowledged that some parts are unavailable. I pointed out that an
'85 Magna is nearly a quarter of a century old, and your assertion was
that bikes over 10 years old, not 23 years old, were not supported. I
also pointed out that this was not a particularly popular model anyway.

Oh yes, agreed. *But the cut-off period is longer than 10 years*.

And Honda *does* still keep making parts for bikes far, far older, if
there is sufficient demand (and thus profit).

Proof?
See the Honda 400 Four in my sig? You can still get brand new OE
exhausts for it (largely due to pressure from David Silver Esq who sells
hundreds every year). The price has recently gone up significantly, from
£250-odd to £425 or so (double it for US dollars), and these are *not*
NOS parts. They're still being made.

OK, so they're pricey, but you can buy one from D.Silver Esq or from a
Honda UK dealer.

That's cast-iron proof. What proof have you got for your assertion that
they don't make any parts for bikes older than 10 years?

(I can still get brand new camchains and points sets for my 1974 SL125.
I don't know whether these are still being manufactured, though)

From experience, the internet providers might have the part number
on the site, will let you order it, and then a couple hours/days
later will tell you via email or phonecall "sorry, it's no longer
available". I've recently had this happen for both Honda
('74 CR125M) and Suzuki (GS750EC) parts, from two
different suppliers. Service Honda in the first case, Bike

Ye-es, but the point of this sub-thread was that Jack started by
saying there was no support for 10+ year-old Hondas.

However, he choose to illustrate his point by referring to a bike that
was actually 25 years old, and then (to general amusement) tied
himself in knots.

The CR125 you mention is 34 years old, and the 750 about 30 years old,
and we have already agreed that some parts for older bikes are hard or
impossible to find. I'd expect this for bikes 30+ years old.

And yes, some suppliers do piss you around. However, as has been
patiently explained, this is a defect of the suppliers concerned and
has nothing to do with the actual manufacturers' spare parts support
policy.

I was surprised to see Service Honda mentioned in this context.
My experience with them has been very positive, and I have never had
them come back saying they couldn't get any parts for my '81 CM400T,
or my '81 CB900C, or my '86 GL1200A.

Since it has been mentioned that S.H. may not be able to get all the
parts listed in their online catalog, if I want to order any parts for
older bikes from them, I will phone first and have them check with the
warehouse for availability.

I have also ordered numerous parts for the three aforementioned bikes
from a local Honda dealer, including a complete top end gasket set for
the CM400T and I never had them tell me they couldn't get a part I
wanted.

Mike,

A couple of months ago I was searching for some out of production
Gaerne boots. I was able to order them from two different places that
in fact did not have them in stock. I was also notified promptly,
but...

It is someone's responsibility to keep the online store's inventory
current, it's not necessarily a function of the software used. When I
told one of the places they still showed the boots in stock, they
changed the page within a day.

Yeabut that's different as no motorcycle shop stocks hard parts
for 20-30 year old bikes, except by accident.

The following is slightly conjecture as I've not had enough
access to the insides of one of these systems but:

My local dealer, an old friend, has let me play with his system
minimally a couple times. You can also access it via internet.

http://www.nrys.com/fiche_select.asp

It supposedly has a direct connection to Yamaha and Suzuki
warehouse stock, as Service Honda most probably does.
The trouble is that connection is less than stellar,
it will let you order stuff that isn't available. If you're standing
at the
counter, it'll come back and tell you right then. If you're doing it
through whatever firewall allows access via internet, it never tells
you anything is not available unless the part number database
says 'no longer available'. I've had the same experience with
my buddy's system as I have with Service Honda's. Order it
online from him for pickup in a couple days and get a call or
email that the parts are no longer available.

So I think in this case, it is a software vendor failing.
I think.


Go fast. Take chances.

It is someone's responsibility to keep the online store's inventory
current, it's not necessarily a function of the software used. When I
told one of the places they still showed the boots in stock, they
changed the page within a day.
Yeabut that's different as no motorcycle shop stocks hard parts
for 20-30 year old bikes, except by accident.
The following is slightly conjecture as I've not had enough
My local dealer, an old friend, has let me play with his system
minimally a couple times. You can also access it via internet.
http://www.nrys.com/fiche_select.asp
It supposedly has a direct connection to Yamaha and Suzuki
warehouse stock, as Service Honda most probably does.
The trouble is that connection is less than stellar,
it will let you order stuff that isn't available. If you're standing
at the
counter, it'll come back and tell you right then. If you're doing it
through whatever firewall allows access via internet, it never tells
you anything is not available unless the part number database
says 'no longer available'. I've had the same experience with
my buddy's system as I have with Service Honda's. Order it
online from him for pickup in a couple days and get a call or
email that the parts are no longer available.
So I think in this case, it is a software vendor failing.
I think.
In this case I agree, it's not a simple "shopping cart" that you're
dealing with, as in my examples.

Ye-es, but the point of this sub-thread was that Jack started by
saying there was no support for 10+ year-old Hondas.
However, he choose to illustrate his point by referring to a bike that
was actually 25 years old, and then (to general amusement) tied
himself in knots.

This may come as a surprise to you, but I restore old Jap bikes, both
for fun and as part of what I loosely call "work".

Honda's parts supply is absolutely extraordinary. Yes, it's getting
harder to source components for pre-1980s bikes, but as I said in my
other post, you can't expect Honda to keep making all parts for all
their bikes ad infinitum.

Your assertion that Honda doesn't support bikes more than a decade old
is utter tripe.

That would mean that, for example, a CBR600, 1997 vintage, now no longer
has parts made for it....

If the parts will also fit some newer bike, they're still on the shelf. If it's
used only on the older bike, forget it.

Try to find a set of Honda brake pads for a V65 Sabre. *If* you ask for Sabre
pads you'll get "Those are out of production" but if you cross reference other
bikes that take the same part which still are current, you can get them.

We were lately informed that Honda no longer makes spare parts for the '94 Magna
we have. When the current stockpile is gone, it's gone.

When did that become part of the argument? If you're going to buy a bike and

You are jumping to unsupported conclusions again (still).

A single incident does not a pattern make and a single incident does not
mean whatever you mistakenly believe it to mean.

The simple fact that their initial response was "We will try to order it."
directly refutes your claim that they offer no support.

If you actually dig long enough, instead of just pulling wild guesses out of
your ass, I think you will find that they don't GUARANTEE support for things
over XX years old (more like 20 I think) but will always try......feeble
though the attempt may be.

Over the years I have been amazed at some of the 20 year old "real" Honda
parts they have been able to come up with. There have also been cases where
they can't get things that old from Honda and won't take their time to root
them out somewhere else. That should be no surprise to anybody though.

Bingo. So the aftermarket guys get someone to build the stuff that's economical
to build, that will move, and they sell it until it's no longer economical or
the lack of demand doesn't justify the cost of keeping it in stock. Then you're
stuck digging through junkyards or getting something custom built or modified
from something else.

Once again for the slow readers, I never said you can't get the old parts. I
said Honda doesn't make them any more. And they don't.

The pimple-faced kid behind the counter may try to order them for you, not
knowing that they don't exist. The book he's looking at may be older than he
is. That does not equal corporate Honda support, that is a kid that doesn't
know anything except how to punch in a part number, doing what he's trained to
do and telling you whatever you want to hear.

When the rubber meets the road, Honda doesn't make the part anymore and unless
someone has a NOS item, you're not going to get it from Honda.

I've dealt with too many of the 20+ year old bikes, and I know what my
experience and the experience of other old Honda V4 owners has been. Ignition
modules are in very short supply, and all of them are used. Just this year
someone came out with a module that will work, but it costs nearly as much as
the value of the bike. You won't get one from Honda. They stopped making them
15 years ago and the stuff on the shelves has dried up.

If Honda ceases making parts, yes, right, but this is the same of *all*

You seem to deliberately be picking one of Honda's least successful

Look, I can order brand new OE Honda stuff for my 1974 SL125, if I want

See my other posting about the SL125. That's an engine that Honda
stopped making in, erm, well, its last incarnation was in the mid-1980s.

So I seriously doubt that parts like camchain, piston, etc fit other
bikes.

Anyway, you're *still* changing your markers. Originally it was "no
support for bikes over 10 years old". Now it's "not manufacturing unique
parts for bikes over 10 years old".

I said: some parts aren't in production.

So, a quick review.

Jack says:

"Honda has a policy of not supporting any bike older than 10 years"

TOG says: "Utter and complete nonsense" and others say similar.

Jack says a head gasket for a CB1000 is unavailable from Honda.

TOG says that a CB1000 is a quarter-century old, not 10 years, but
nevertheless points him at a supplier and quotes a price.

Jack says: "That's not a Honda dealer, is it?"

TOG says: "It's a genuine Honda part, and it's available. So a Honda
dealer can obtain it." He acknowledges that some parts for older bikes
are indeed not obtainable and points out why.

Jack starts a frantic back-pedal and claims: "I never said you can't get
the old parts. I said Honda doesn't make them any more."

TOG (and Ken) remind him that this is not at all what he said. TOG says
that parts for older bikes are being made.

Jack demands proof!

TOG points to the exhaust of his 30 year-old Honda 400 Four and says
(correctly) that it's still being made. Also cites parts for his 1974
125.

Jack chooses to ignore the 400 exhaust issue and says of the 125: "We
don't have those pushbikes over here", thus now making the imaginary
supply problem a localised US issue.

TOG reminds Jack that he's ,oving the goalposts with every posting.

Jack asks TOG to prove that a gasket for a CB1000 is still currently in
production.

And TOG, at this stage in a laughable series of nonsense postings by
Jack says:

You lose.

By choosing to completely ignore my request for a source for you
statement that Honda does not support bikes older than 10 years you show
that this is only your impression, NOT a policy of Honda. As so well
pointed out to you, many parts are available. I do a lot of work on Gold
Wings and can assure you that I still am able to get what I need from
AHM for bikes older than 10 years. Of course it is true that SOME parts
are no longer available. If Honda was to continue to stock all parts for
everything that they sold for the last 10, 15, 20 or 25 years do you
have any idea what the cost to you would be? You would be starting a new
thread about how Honda was ripping of the public with their high prices.
As was pointed out before, the whole V-4 line of the mid 80's was not
one of the best efforts of Honda. I have worked on them from the time
they came out and there were times when a bike left the shop that we
crossed our fingers and hopped that it would hold together, and this was
using genuine Honda parts. It is not a big surprise that the parts
supply for these is running low.
I would once again ask for a source for your statement that bikes older
than 10 years are not supported. You silence will speak volumes.

read them, so that the obvious contradiction can't be pointed out.

Very strange. He's not alone in that, of course.

Not to weigh in on either side of this specific issue since I don't own
a CB1000.

There are a ton of parts still being made for older bikes because they
were reincarnated on newer bikes. Just go to a web site like Dennis Kirk
and when you get to a specific item like clutch plates or brake shoes
and click the catagory ~See what other bikes this part fits. You may
find clutch plates from a 30 year old bike were used in a 5 year old
bike and are still available.

Some things like cam chains may not be the right lenght, but you can
shorten them.

Something like pistons, SL125 for example since it was brought up, you
can substitute. An example would be a Honda 4 cylinder like CB750 since
they use the same wrist pin.

While it doesn't qualify as Honda OEM, seems like Honda cotracted many
parts out to other manufacturers. You may not be able to buy a new set
of Honda rings for an older bike but you can sometimes still buy the
rings from the contractor that was making them for Honda in the first place.

They do? Where do you learn that little nugget of info?

Not that I disbelieve you: I'm just impressed.

I would think that in the over four-and-a-half-years since he asked about
the gasket, he might have found one. Don't you think?

What harm is caused by a late answer? It's not as if this newsgroup is
overflowing with traffic, and if indeed that head gasket is actually
available[1], it's a good piece of info for anyone with a CB1000C who needs
a head gasket.

If the answer was only supposed to be of use to the original poster, all
replies might as well be sent by email which would make newsgroups a whole
lot less useful.

[1] I really doubt that there are any to be easily found since Honda say
they are not available- but there's always the chance there is one sitting
on a shelf somewhere that didn't get sent back to the Honda warehouse years
ago.

I don't know the answer to that, but I'm always suspicious of a post with
"MISMATCH" in the path :-).
