Output shaft splines stripped

So I just picked up a 1988 KLR for free from my brother-in-law that he parked about 6 years ago when the output shaft splines wore down causing the chain sprocket to slip. I’m interested in attempting to get it back up and running but I can’t seem to find a replacement part. Can you get a replacement output shaft 13128/A for an 88? Any other ideas for a fix?

Have a look at this thread. You’ll find some excellent info there. Sounds like Post #9 is a similar situation to yours. I’m sure @Tom Schmitz will jump in and answer your questions.

There are always pre-'96 transmissions available on e-bay and they don't cost much. That is probably your best bet unless you're willing to do some work on the case to fit a later transmission.

If I were in your shoes I'd be looking for a KLR600 transmission, truth be told. I like the ratios better. Even those aren't too hard to find.

The lock plates are still around, I think Eagle Manufacturing stocks them. Lay in a couple of spares and you would be good for the life of the bike.

If you get really desperate and want to take the easy way out for the life of a new set of sprockets and a chain there is this option.
