I want to replace my sprockets on my 79 750K. The chain tightens and loosens significantly as the wheel turns which can not be a good sign . It currently has a 14 and 39 tooth setup which I am finding to be a bit strange. I might just have to buy a new set of sprockets and chain also. Looking for advice on what might be the best sprocket/chain setup for this bike. Thanks!
I myself never realy changed away from the stock tooth setup on my bikes.
I have the stock chain on my 750 but a roller chain on my ninja.
i will be getting a roller for the 750 in the future since it has been outlasting the old style chains.
Me < I would get the stock sprockets and roller chain for it.
How good are your adjusters?
your 15/38 is the same as 14/39,,no difference,,14/38 might lower you rpm a little at cruising speed, but not much, i went down 3 teeth in the rear sprocket and am satisfied with results, have to shorten chain a little but your gettin a new one anyway so?? good luck, mykey440
awfully low geared, you can order chain& sprockets at your local honda shop, get aftermarket parts,,jt sprockets are good, and D.I.D chain, 530.....I would go down on your rear sprocket a few teeth, a little less rpm at cruising speed, still gets out of the whole good...mykey440
