48 rear sprocket

Here's where to ask questions and get answers

48 rear sprocket

Postby stans48s » Sun Sep 15, 2019 1:08 am

did all 48 models come with the rear sprocket held on with small bolts and nuts?, look like a number 10 screw. The nuts on mine look like they are welded to the small bolts. Is this normal, or did someone do this? Stan

I thought that was a little odd for Harley to bolt on the sprocket. Someone went to a lot of trouble to mill a recess in the sprocket for the nuts to clear. Stan

Harley dd that. It is a "replacement" sprocket, for those unfortunate enough to not have the rivet fixture like I do !!!

So this bolt on was done at the MOCO, or at a dealership?
I've never seen the bolt on sprocket anywhere on the early 125!
They must be rare as hens teeth!?

Part # 41476-52. It was made by Harley, sold at the dealer and either the dealer or the customer would install it. These came out just about the time the S model was phased out.

Resurrecting an older post here...
My 61 Super 10 really needs a rear wheel sprocket. I have never seen a sprocket riveted to the wheel hub. Does anyone know of a DIY method to bolt on a new sprocket? I believe I can buy a new generic sprocket, and machine it to fit the hub. Is this possible? Otherwise, I guess the whole wheel will end up going though Mutts shop....

Let me know your thoughts.
Thanks
