View Full Version : wheel issues!

01-24-2011, 8:42 PM
I ordered a 18" rear from ebay, the seller said it is a cb750. But..... It is a 6 bolt sprocket (yamaha, suzuki?) A cb 750 drum I had laying around, is way too big
I'm trying to figure out what it is at this point. drum lip is 6" the brake wall is 5" and the depth is 1.625" so I'm guessing it is 130 mm x 30-40mm brake shoes. Any one have any idea where I can look for info on wheels and drum sizes? It has a 48 tooth sprocket. Bearing id is 5/8" and od is about 1 7/16", so 15-16 mm id, 36 mm od?
Sticker on it says DID

How even the measurements are and the 48 tooth sprocket I was thinking american? Any help would be great.

i hate to say this, but i think we were talking about this on the honda chopper forums, about that listing!

Let me guess no one wanted to touch it with a 10 foot pole! It really is a good rim, I just need to find a drum to match it.
The did sticker says 2.15 x 18.
Does anyone have a xt500 or sr500 drum laying around to see if its the right size?

why not start with a pic, i am sure alot of hubs have the same or simular measurements

I will post one when I get home. Are drum measurements take from the od of the housing or the id of the pad wall?
