Sprockets front and rear GTO 350
« on: March 22, 2017, 04:06:00 AM »
1. Would like new sprockets, but can't find any. Where can I buy? Something else might fit - but what?

2. Need better accleration. Have a 15 teth in front and a 36 rear. Would like a 14 front and a 38 rear - good combination?

No. I was planing on buying something within Europe (EU). That will save me a small fortune in tax and costoms. I allways tripels the price!

The front sprocket for a Kawasaki F9 (350 single dual sport from the early 70's) will fit. The only issue is that the F9 used a nut to hold the sprocket on, therefore the sprockets don't have the 3 holes for the retainer bolts. You can either drill and tap the holes in metal with a VERY hard surface, or find a heavy-duty snapring to hold it on the shaft. The good thing is that sprockets are available in nearly any size (at least in the U.S.).

I was hoping that model got imported into Europe, but probably not.

I checked, the JTF 437 you asked about on Facebook has the correct spline. The retention clip might need a little modification.

Some times you just have to pay the price Jens, :'( doubt if you would ever need to replace them again? :)

 :) Well. You might be wrong. I drive a lot, last year I coverd 5.500 kilometers (+ 3.000 miles) on my Honda CL450K6 from 1974. Even went to Cuba on it, and drove arround the island! Nice place. Wrote an article about in Classic bike - January issue 2017.

Planing to do many miles on my Bridgestone GTO from 1970. I has only unbeliveable 1.586 miles on it since new!
