Customer Question

I have a 1983 200e Big Red Honda, I wish to know how you get the drive sprocket out. I removed the sub transmission, i can slide the gear on the shaft but thier is an inner seal in the way & the sprocket is to large for removal. Do I have to remove the engine & tear is completely apart to get to he transmission to remove the gear, & install a new one. Thank you

Here is a link to a parts diagram for reference:

You must remove the inner cover #1 to get the sprocket off.

Unfortunately you did say what all I have to remove to get the inner cover off. like the pull starter, the alternator. & I have no special tools to hold the crankshaft to remove the rotor on the alternator or what ever it is called. Being a mechanic for over 40 years your explanation leaves a lot to be desired................I like the picture but that is as far as my liking goes..........
