17 sprocket instructions?
« on: February 02, 2018, 12:50:58 PM »
Hi guys, is there any instructions posted online to install a 17t front sprocket? I think it was only posted in the Facebook group. I asked to noo over a week ago and still havenít been accepted. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

From the world of Google... http://teamwolfclassic.blogspot.com/2012/04/how-to-gear-up-by-changing-drive.html

Having had a sprocket retainer come off at 35-40 MPH on a freeway offramp (imagine the thrill if this had happened 20 seconds sooner at 65-70 MPH) on my low miles, used 1975 Honda CB400F (because the 2 bolts went missing, jamming the sprocket against the swingarm, locking the rear wheel)... I strongly suggest tracking down the torque specifications on those 2 bolts and using a torque wrench...add a few drops of blue Loctite to each, for good measure.

It's easy-peasy.
Remove the shifter lever (take the bolt all the way out)
Remove cover plate on countershaft (front) sprocket.
Remove the 2 bolts and bracket that hold the 16 tooth sprocket on (the sprocket now is loose on the shaft).
Loosen the 2 rear wheel nuts and loosen the 2 adjusters on each side allowing the rear wheel to slide forward.
Remove the 16 tooth sprocket and install the 17 tooth into the chain - install bracket and bolts.
Reinstall cover and shift lever.
Gently/slowly tighten the rear wheel adjusters to take up chain tension to 10-20mm deflection (see manual)
Re-tighten the 2 rear wheel nuts and VOILA !!  You're done  ;)
Get your motor runnin' .. get out on the highway.
