Part: Honda CB550 37 Tooth Rear Chain Sprocket
Why You Need This: The entire drivetrain on old bikes like the Honda CB550 is made up of continuous wear items. Depending on how well the previous owners kept up with chain adjustments lubrication on the chain your rear sprocket may be very worn out.
Sprockets should be changed out when the teeth are thin and pointy. Our replacement rear drive sprockets are exact replacements for the factory sprocket originally found on your Honda. It's made from high quality steel with the proper factory 530 chain pitch size. If you need help with chain length contact us. This is a 37 tooth sprocket.
Installation Tip: Changing the number of teeth on rear sprocket will change the final drive ratio of your bike. More teeth will give greater acceleration but less top end, while fewer teeth will give better top end, but reduced acceleration. A new chain cut to the proper length (number of links) must be installed when changing out to different sprocket sizes. If you are installing a new rear sprocket it is also a good idea to replace your front sprocket as well. Use a high quality chain lube, such as Bel-Ray Super Clean.
