Tire Rub on '89 PC800
Written by l_gupton on 6/10/2010 at 08:06 am

Well, just recently I've developed the dreaded trunk rub on my new to me 89
PC800 w/ Dunlop K555 w/ 9600miles on it. I initially diagnosed it as low tire
pressure. Aired-up and its still rubbing. Funny thing, there was no rub for
the first 100 miles I rode it, only recently. I looked up in the wheel well and
have about 1" on the right side and barely 1/4" on the left. Will swapping in a
later model liner fix it? Thanks in advance.

    If you swap out the trunk for a later model trunk you won't have any further problem. Honda changed that dimension on all of their replacement trunks including the 89. Until you get a replacement trunk, be cafeful how you pack the left side o
