Welcome to the Forum. Upper right side of this page you'll see "Custom Search" type in what you'd like to see..."Sprocket Change" ?? use the "VB search" (not "g search).. it'll give you some idea of previous discussions. Go from there. Sprocket changes are a pretty common modification with pros and cons depending on what you want/expect out of your bike. You'll also see upper left of page under "Forums" then "CB500 tech section" previous threads pertaining to your questions. Good Luck. Ride Safe.:nerd:

Direct replacement. 15 minute job.

More like a 1 hr job if you have no center stand.
You will need to loosen & readjust the rear wheel, but the chain is long enough.


Also may have to remove some items on the left side of the bike. (foot peg and shift linkage, I think)

Be sure to have good metric wrenches and "Allen" wrenches.


Easy job but take your time.

Mine fit perfectly - no grinding or anything else. Just be careful to put everything back together just like it was. Took me, taking my time about 30 minutes. I also used never seize compound on bolts and screws.
