Part: Rear Sprocket for Honda CB450 / CL450 Scrambler / CB500T
Why You Need This: Sprockets are a wear item on any motorcycle, and your Honda CB450, CL450 Scrambler or CB500T is no exception. Thin pointy teeth are indicators that it is time to replace your rear sprocket (see the picture). This new rear sprocket will fit your Honda CL / CB450 or CB500T just like the original. Made from quality steel and available in both gold and silver finished, it retains the factory 530 sized drive chain. When replacing the rear sprocket always use a new chain and replace the front drive sprocket as well. A new chain and sprocket set will make your motorcycle feel tighter on the road and give great throttle response. Sprockets designs may differ in appearance from those pictured.
Note: 35 tooth is the stock size sprocket for the CB450 and CL450 Scrambler; the CB500T used a 33 tooth rear sprocket from the factory which is not available. The same final drive ratio can be archived by changing to a 16 tooth front drive sprocket when using the 35 tooth rear.
We carry three variants of CB450 style sprockets based on changes that were made to the drive stud design over the lifespan of the bike model. Please choose the correct variant of rear sprocket based on your "K" model of your motorcycle.
- "A" variant sprockets fit K1, K2, K3 & K4 CB450 & CL450 Scrambler
- "B" variant sprockets fit K5, K6, & K7 CB450 & CL450 Scrambler
- "C" variant sprockets fit CB500T only
Installation Tip: Make sure to torque the sprocket-retaining nuts to the factory specification; use blue lock-tite on the threads and bend the lock tabs are in place. Pay mind to the chain length (number of links) and install the correct size chain to work with your front and rear sprocket combination. If you need help figuring out chain length see this article. Also make sure to use chain lube on new drive sprockets and chain.
