\'86 750 speedometer drive

Hello everyone. Happy to be a part of your community. Just a quick question. I just bought an '86 gixxer750. At some point, someone changed the rims to non-stock sizes for that year. The problem is, the bike has the wrong speedometer drive intalled right now. My question is, given the size of the rims, can anyone tell me what bike the rims came from, and/or what speedo drive I need to get? The rim sizes are: front--18x2.75, and rear--18x4.50. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for the quick reply, Gerry. They are threee-spoke rims. So you say that these rims are probably off of an 1100? Mine aren't 750 rims at all? Do you know what sizes the original '86 750 rims were? Thanks again. Tom

Your bike came with 18X2.5 front and 18X3.5 rear six spoke rims. Your rims are from a 88/1100. The speedo drive from either bike should be fine......how far off is your reading??

I have no reading. I have the wrong speedo drive(or at least the plastic gear inside the drive). The plastic tabs on the drive gear inside the drive unit don't even touch the corresponding tabs on the rim. But thank you for your reply; you saved me a lot of hassle. I'll get the parts tomorrow.

Huh........maybe the 750 drive is a bit different. It is possible since the 88/1100 is a bit of an oddball.

Your rims have to be 88/1100 as that's the only one with 18" three spokes. Better go with that drive just to be sure.......R
