    Can you not have the lens replaced as is done in cataract surgery?

    Default Maybe this diagram will help get things started?

    Here's another link that shows a few key dimensions on the diagram: http://cnemanda.b2bage.com/product-m...otorcycle.html

    I appreciate your help, but the reason I came hear was because I didn't know any of those kind of sprocket terms. (bore, outside dia, etc.) However, I do know that there are 14 teeth as for measuring them...

    OK; and we're glad you sought our help. We don't really care if you don't know the terms right now. I probably don't even know them all! You can call them whatever descriptive terms you like. Did you take a look at any of the links we presented to see if anything matches up? As good as you are at AutoCAD, don't you think you could quickly approximate the sprocket in a preliminary 2-D drawing? Or perhaps use some of the other ideas to get up and running? If you just put smth down, then you can refer to the dimensions themselves.

    By the way, the diagram I linked to shows a symbol that is a circle with a line through it--it represents diameter. But you already know this much, right? You don't really need to know the terms in order to measure the diameters and put them into AutoCAD and post, or to just draw an approximation and post. If it is just the teeth you don't know how to measure, then post what you have and we can go from there. "Tell what you know, show what you've got." I really think you can do this.

    GOOD NEWS!!! I figured out the picture thing! I'm editing it now (it is unbelievable how blurry the webcam makes it). And yes, I am willing to go step by step IF that is what it takes.

    With an even number of teeth, you should be able to measure all the way across from the end or tip of one tooth to the one on the opposite side of the sprocket. That would be the outside diameter. The inner hole has two basic diameters that can be measured with the calipers. That's already three concentric circles to draw.

    If you're having trouble with any of this, I seriously suggest you answer Yes to JD Mather's question and commit to doing exactly what he says. He will carefully step you through. It's a very good option in any case.

    Thanks! The outside diameter is 3.107 in, the outer circle of inner hole is dia: 0.983 in, and the inner circle of inner hole is dia: 0.8265 in.
