I have an 89 GSXR 1100 and the original rear wheel is definitely a six bolt pattern. I recently replaced the rear sprocket, chain and front sprocket, but I don't recall what number it is. I do know that the guy at the motorcycle shop recommended I use a conversion kit and it came with the o-ring chain, front and rear sprocket. The chain I know for sure is a LM 530 o-ring and I think it's from RK Motorcycle Chain. Another note is I think it was a 532, but going with the conversion kit changed it.

somebody prolly put a cush-drive from a katana or sumpin' in there. The oil-cooled and SRAD gixxers all used 6-bolt sprockets, but the bolt-circle is bigger on the SRADs... I *think* the katanas and bandits use a 5-bolt pattern. Best bet is to take your old sprocket in and match it to something with the same bolt-pattern and then order that in the chain-size/tooth requirements to match your new chain.

You can always call sprocket specialists, all they need to know is the bolt pattern, number of holes, hole size, chain size and center hole size. I use them for my dragbike sprockets since they are aftermarket wheels using odd patterns. they use to be like $50-60 from them for 50+ tooth 530 sprockets i have had great luck with them. I ran some on my 900RR also when it had PM wheels

I had the same problem w/ my '88 750.
The previous owner had done the conversion & put a early '90 1100 wheel(wider) than the stock that came with the bike.
If you want, I have a sprocket that will fit ur ride laying in my garage.
Never used.
You pay shipping from 07731.

Let me know.

Its brand new, and its from a 92 1100 so it should fit what you have.
