It's "functionally" nothing like a locker. It's limited slip at best, and in reality more like an open diff.Nope... I doubt that there is any such aftermarket parts ever made for them. Why? Because they already are... functionally the same as a locker.
They are very strong front diffs. Generally have to run them without oil for a long time to kill them.
If yours is failing there are used ones for sale on the fLeebay. Some are very low priced too.
If yours is slipping & making a snapping sound it can be fixed by putting different gear oil in it than the 80w90 it calls for.
Welcome to the forums!
What year have you got? Got any pics of your 350D you can share...?
So your front end acts like a locker how? YOU explain to me how your 30 year old Honda front diff acts like a locker, and I'll explain how it acts like a open diff.....OK, but mine is 30 years old and works like it should. Can you explain to me why/how I got so lucky when all the others, even new ones, are functionally open diffs?
Ditto for the one we had, bought it new in 1987, sold it in 2005. Was a great machine in it's day, still is now, I can say many good things about it, but having a locker isn't one of them lolMine functions as limited slip. Always has as long as I can remember. The bike is 1 year older than I am, dad bought it new.
A locker acts like a spool when power is applied to it, yet will allow one wheel to slip while making a turn.So your front end acts like a locker how? YOU explain to me how your 30 year old Honda front diff acts like a locker, and I'll explain how it acts like a open diff.....
I'm lost ........ Is the ops dif down ? Or is he just wanting to tighten it up , as mac said welding or shims, You can cheat that front dif, like this, and still have good steering, unless he's wanting a full out mud machine.

I guess I'm being too subtle?I never said it did act like a spool! I stated that a locker and a limited slip were functionally the same. They just use different mechanisms to achieve the same result. Open diffs have no locking capability.
