15 tooth sprocket on a WR450

9 posts in this topic

I would like to get a 15 counter shaft sprocket for open desert riding, but it sure looks like a super tight fit with case guard and chain guide at the front of the swing arm. Is going to a 15 doable without interference?

I fabricated a new counter sprocket guard from a piece of 3mm alloy I had layin around in the shed... I traced the old one and then trimmed a little off the inside to allow the sprocket and chain to run freely... I can swap sprockets over now and maintain the 50 rear sprocket without changing chains... Your gunna love the 15 tooth mate... top speed around 175klmh down the beach... yeeeeew... Don't know exact cruising RPM at 100klmh but its certainly nice and lo... :doh:

I use a 15 on mine when the motard wheels are on it.

Yes, its a tight fit, but it does go on and (just) clear the chain guard on the swingarm.

I used the stock steel case guard, and just elongated the mount holes to slide the protector over about 1 mm for plenty of clearance.
