Gearbox casing changing-
This is typically done when a customer has damaged the gearbox casings after a crash or else due to some other serious internal damage.We do this job
regularly for customers.
Genuine Honda Sychro changes-
These are the parts which allows the gearbox to change from one gear to the next smoothly, if this part gets damaged from misuse or excessive mileage the gears start to grind when changing from one to the other. This is fixed by replacing the damaged part with a new genuine Honda part.
