Over time, the drive sprocket on your Honda Rebel will wear down, causing chain-slipping and other issues. Sprocket wear is normal, and you should check the sprocket routinely as part of your regular maintenance schedule. When your drive sprocket needs to be replaced, it will show signs of “shark-toothing,” or wearing on one side of the sprocket teeth. Save money by learning how to replace this sprocket on your own, using basic tools you already have.
