Question about 1996 Honda CMX 250 Rebel

The rear sprocket has noticable side to side play.

The rear sprocket on my 1979 Honda CM400T motorcycle has noticable side to side play. The 4 rubber bushings, and the 4 triangular shaped aluminum studs seem to be in good condition. How much should there be? How tight should the bushings be?

    I understand that there should be no play, but how do I determine if the bushings are bad?

  • ratler333 Sep 28, 2009

    All the bolts are tight. How do I tell if the bushings are wore out?

    If you have more than a tenth of an inch of "wobble" as you manually twist on the rear sprocket, then the main bushing isert in the sprocket has worn out. The rubber cushions have nothing to do with this, they just isolate vibration and shock load. The sprocket slides onto the hub's hollow shaft, and should have a slight clearance fit. As far as I can tell, the big bushing in the center of the sprocket is not replaceable (sprocket riveted onto carrier- bushing is shrink press fit) If you measured the hub shaft, and removed the old bushing (it won't come out in one peice) you can call an industrial supply to get an acceptable DF style bushing. Heat the sprocket to 350 deg, freeze the bushing, get a shop press and install the new one- this will restore the original fit)

It should be not too tight but it sounds, as your chain is more than the required three loops check the chain and see how much you have extra links?

    The sprocket would wobble and be loose. The bolts may e loose as well.

Side to side play in front sprocket on 02 cr250r


If you look at the case , you should see a cast spacer in it. If the sprocket "Rocks" on the shaft, you may have some debris on the case mating face (the inside of the sprocket) - remove the sprocket and clean the shaft and mating face to make sure there is no debris. When the sprocket securing nut is fitted, the sprocket should have no noticeable rocking. Make sure the nut is torqued to the correct setting.

When shutting down throttle in gear, a heavy clonk is felt through transmission! chain and sprockets good.! thankyou.


If the chain and sprockets are in good condition and adjusted properly ( 1 1/2" slack ), you should check the rear wheel sprocket dampers. These are made of rubber and can deteriorate over time. If the dampers are bad you will be able to move the rear sprocket forward and back while the bike is sitting still. It is an easy fix to replace them, just remove the rear wheel and sprocket. they are model specific parts and should be available from your local dealer.

Have fitted new cush rubbers as ther was play at rear sprocket/rear wheel only to find that there is still play there with new rubbers fitted. Is this common or can they be shimmed to remove play.


You can buy a piece of rubber at the hardware store. They sell a pad for making rubber plumbing gaskets . You could experiment with carefully placed shims to see if it helps. I do not think it will hurt anything to try, and it might be nice to get the clunk out.

Inspect Your Motorcycle's Sprockets


Front and rear sprocket teeth are good indicators of maladjusted chains; inspect the teeth to make sure they are meshing well with the chain. If the sides of the teeth are worn, chance are they haven't been seating well with the chain (which probably shows corresponding wear.) Wave-shaped teeth wear is another irregularity that might suggest that you need new sprockets.
