The stock sprocket is dished out so the chain lines up. Looks like they put the wrong sprocket on there at some point.

DMOBill sells an adaptor to correct this. It uses Honda 400EX sprokets.

Robdek,

There may be more going on than just the wrong sprocket. I can tell by the picture that the sprocket is definitely wrong. But there is still too much gap between the swingarm and the wheel. This is possibly caused by the chain adjusters being on the wrong sides. I`d like to see more pics of what`s going on with that setup. You definitely have to fix this or I`ll guarantee a chain through the case.

That was my first guess as well but it looks okay according to the parts diagram. I'll post a couple more pics later today.

Still trying to remove the axle. It should just slide out, right? Spins freely but moves only about inch and then notta. I let it soak with penetrating oil overnight...hope that helped!!!

RobDek,

If you can move that axle an inch, cut it and pound it back thru. You should be able to remove the wheel then. At that point, you may have to drive the axle out one side with a wheel bearing.

Mr. Bigwheel,

I sure hope those aren`t Honda forks.

Excellent work. On that triple clamp, are the forks moved forward over OEM to keep from hitting the tank? What diameter forks did you use?

That's my next plan. I was also thinking of employing a slide hammer but I'm not sure if there's an accessory that would attach to the bolt head somehow. Damn discouraging to be shutdown by a simple task!!!

Looks I'll be ordering from you in the near future. Do you also offer swing arm bushings?

Many thanks!!!

::: EDIT :::

This would be so cool to have right now!!!

Progress on the project goes slowly. The bike ended up getting stripped almost to the frame. Some previous owner had good intentions when he replaced the stock skid plate with a slab of steel that was welded to the footpeg mounts and attached to the lower, forward engine mount. I found the mount broken off the case and the engine had to be scrapped.



The forks and triple clamp are now mounted on the Desert 100 BW that is in Washington.

A different engine got the new top end with a Wiseco big bore kit. Now it's going to displace 353 CCs!!!!

It is actually a higher compression piston, so now I get to run Premium gas in the BW.



The engine got hung in the frame a few days ago and I would be able to focus on the front end if there weren't other persistent problems cropping up. I guess that's to be expected when you take apart 25 year old dirt bikes.

The real reason is that I'm lazy and would rather sit around and eat BigWheels than work on them:

Big Wheels

Yum! Those look delicious.

I like the red paint on the cylinder.

What compression ratio did you end up with?

Thanks for the update!

A bw200 one works. I recently bought one from parts source.

Finally got that axle out!!! No wonder it was stuck....the axle was frozen in a steel sleeve...no way no how it would've come out peacefully.









Got the brake over and put some more heat on the situation. You can see a previous cut attempt but I couldn't get at it to finish.





Finally enough room to make a good cut.



Ahhh...the culprit finally emerges!!!



What a mess of parts!!!

And the restoration begins in earnest...axle and chain tensioners ordered from eBay (wyldflower002) and a $300 order from Partzilla. Also waiting on DMOBill about swing arm bushings before ordering the sprocket adapter and jackshaft kit.

I tried to order some stuff from bigrus60 on eBay but he's not interested in doing business with Canadians....oh well...his loss.
