Thought I'd start a new thread with my problem so it might get a little attention, how much of a problem will be caused---- my front sproket alignment with the rear sprocket is off approx 1/4 of an inch, paralell, just offset inward .250 ?? Thanks!

How much distance is between the front and rear sprocket?

Is it possible to shim the rear sprocket to attain the appropriate alignment?

I might be able to shim half that distance no more, but not sure till I try, anymore and the chain guard will also have to modified or shimmed all the way around to allow for chain clearance.

Just keep in mind that any difference in alignment is going to drastically accelerate the wear on the chain and sprockets. You need to get them as close to perfectly aligned as possible.

I'm no expert but I think different front sprockets can be had with different offsets. You might try looking at a front sprocket for a bike with a wider back wheel. Or better yet call one of the sprocket suppliers and ask. Did we ever get those suppliers transferred over? I had some listed on the old forum.

Well, I just came from the MC boneyard, several frustrating hours later and no luck, no bin either, had to physically remove all the sprockets I was camparing them to. Same with my intake hunt, no matches, this Seca is proving to be very proprietary, meaning, if it didn't come on this bike originally, forget it. So next, its either after market if available, or fabrication time....or before I get much further along, use a different power plant. :?

Compared to the more high performance bikes of the time, not a whole lot of aftermarket stuff was made for the Seca II.
