Need a Machinist!

This is a really simple deal. I need a machinist who can take an aluminum sprocket that I have in hand and turn is down from a 525 to a 520. This is very simple it just needs 1/16 of an inch taken off of each side of the teeth down about to the depth of the tooth.

I know I'm going to get a whole bunch of questions and suggestions about why I'm doing this or something else I should do, but I've just about exhausted everything else that can be done and this is what I need done. No one makes a 520 sprocket that will fit the custom wheel that it fits. I have two sprockets coming from the manufacturer in England, but I'd like to get this done because it should be pretty quick and inexpensive.

I might try this if all else fails Jody. Tell me who they are. The problem I'm having is the amount of time is takes someone to make it. Sprockets Specialist already has the pattern and all they will take four weeks to make it though. But I'd rather get it done locally if I can and Dallas if pretty local.

Great Antonio if I can't find someone a little close to me in the next day or so then I will do that. I live down near Clear Lake so that's a big trip. But I just might be hitting you up. Don't you think this should be pretty easy to do?

Call around and ask if they are set up to do auto flywheels.. same cutter should make short work of a sprocket.

I'd volunteer on my minimill but it would take a while...

Jim,
I've got 2 different sources that I can get you a sprocket from.

I either need the sprocket you have now that fits the wheel or at least the hub i.d., # & diameter of bolts and the bolt circle.

Give me a shout tomorrow.

Patrick are they local and do you have any clue how long their turn around might be? I have a spare I can send out. I've got two new Talons coming from England but I really want to get a sprocket on there soon and then I'll have a couple spares. So turning it seems like the quickest method if I can find someone to do it.

One I can probably have in 1-2 days, the other 3-5 if they have it in stock.

nothing easy about it, seriously, nothing in the machining world is as easy as you describe:
"This is very simple it just needs 1/16 of an inch taken off of each side of the teeth down about to the depth of the tooth."

I'll bet its gonna cost more than an assload to get done if you find someone to do it.,
If its really an item that cant be found readily, why not get the 520 sprocket and have the center and bolt holes machined to fit the wheel you have, much easier, i promise.

Why not just run a 525 drivetrain?

Good Luck to you Jim, Wish I could help. Maybe PM TheMagicMan. His dad used to work at a machine shop off the Tardy Whole Road.

Well it looks like there's a company up in the Dallas area that can just make one for me and they even advertise that the have them for a Dymag wheel which is what I need. I'm probably going that route. I think I 'll try going to a shop that does brake rotors and see if they can give my original one a shot.

Jody was it Precision Motorcycle Parts, PMP?

Okay back to reeming each other.

Thanks Scott. No matter what I find here, I've got two new Talons on their way from the UK right now, so I'll have them sooner or later. I just want them sooner, like this weekend would be great.

Patrick I'm suppose to be getting the machine drawing from Dymag, I thought today but they are probably closed now. It appears the PMP has done Dymag sprockets but it turns out there are two different sizes. Mine has a 63.25mm ID hub hole. If they have the pattern then thay can just make a 43 tooth for me. If need be I can send the extra one I have I was just hoping to be able get it started quicker than that.

What do you think?
