Picked up a 1982 Honda XR80 trail bike and need help identifying the rear wheel that came off it(not from a 1982 Honda XR80) so I can find a sprocket replacement. Let me know if any of you guys can help and I'll PM you.

Thanks.

If it came off it, even if it isn't an original part the bolt pattern may be the same. You might try asking one of the (many) aftermarket sprocket manufacturers- give them some dimensions to work with, maybe something will match up.

I'm assuming the sprocket has no identifying marks?

Sprocket is ancient, but the wheel is in great shape.... I've already done what you've suggested. No luck. Looks like I might have to find another rear wheel that I can throw on this bike. Thanks.

Maybe take the sprocket to clairemont cycle supply or C&D and they may be able to help you.

Mine from my youth is still in my parents garage along with a donor parts bike. Haven't started it in 25 years. Its identical to this one:

That's a cool little bike. Have you ridden it? Going for same size/number of teeth?

You may also PM 92122 or wait for his reply on here. I think he's a big dirt bike guy.

I'm phasing out of the scene but still have my CRF450 and a KLX110 .

Haven't ridden it yet...Just picked it up last weekend and am tearing into it, replacing worn/missing parts, etc... It does have great compression though, and it started on the 3rd or 4th kick. As for the teeth, I'd like to stay as stock as possible, so yeah....48 seems right.

Yeah I was going to say it may be all jacked up for all you know if it has the wrong size sprocket so I wouldn't invest a ton of time finding a sprocket you won't ultimately used.

It's a Honda, change the oil, drain and replace the gas, clean the carb, and go!

Next thing you know I'll see you rallying the pump track off Nimitz roflmao

Hahahaha....Nope, trails only, out East. I've already cleaned the carb, changed oil and gas, had a hole in the muffler repaired, replaced cables, etc... Just need a damn sprocket! I guess I could ride it with this wheel and old sprocket, but the teeth are pretty worn...

Grew up in the 70's with the XR75. My first MC was a 72 XR75. Christmas present. Both my brother and I got one. A great little bike. Easy to work on, bomb proof. So much fun.

CS is right. Unless you are trying to restore yours to original, taking the specs off of the rear sprocket you have and talking to a good bike shop should turn you up a good replacement. Stuff like hub dims, bolt patterns, # of teeth. There are a million aftermarket sprockets available out there.

If worse comes to worse, something like that could be easily reproduced by CNC these days.
