Sportster Sprockets

Will a 24 tooth tranny sprocket fit on a 77 kick only bike, Stock 51 tooth rear wheel. Will a 110 link chain be long enough? Is a 21 or a 22 Stock?

I can answer one of your questions. Check out the chain length calculator here:

Iron Pimp thanks for your reply, it seems the 77 and up? has a support tube for the kicker shaft. The kicker cover also has a mounting hole that goes to this tube, can this tube be removed or notched to clear the sprocket? The tube is mounted to the rear engine mount by way of the two case bolts. The kicker Shaft looks like it will just clear, the cover mount and shaft support will definetly hit!
Thanks Neil

Are you talking about the chain oiler Neil ? If so, remove it and plug it. Just don't forget the chain still needs lubed. Pa

Pa it is definetly not the chain oiler, I have had my fair share of Sporty's apart and have never seen this part before. I will be working on my son's bike tomorrow or Saturday and I will snap photo's and show you what I meen. No pictures of it in Clymer or Harley Parts Manual, The sprocket cover bolts on to it above the kicker shaft and it supports the kicker shaft which runs thru it. The parts book shows the extra cover mounting hole above the kicker for77 and up.
Photo's tomorrow thanks Neil

Looks like we'll be getting some much needed rain today! Today, tomorrow or next week I will get those pictures on line. These Sporty's seem to have a lot of 1.5 to 2 yr. changes, the manual catch's some of it, kind of on our own with the rest!
Thanks Neil

Here are a few pictures, didn't get a good shot of the support where it mounts to the motor mount. There is a 21 tooth sprocket on her now.Image

Looks like somebody got sick of breaking covers and had an idea. Never saw anything like it. The die cast covers used on the 71^ CH's were prone to breakage especially with thick oil and cold weather.
