Hi Clark,

It is possible to carefully cut a rear sprocket into two pieces, attach
to the rear sprocket carrier and weld back together.
This does require a welder however, or getting someone who has a welder
for 5 minutes.

This is what I done. It made changing sprockets much easier on the rear
axle, as I didn't want to have to remove the bearings and wheels. Photos
of sprokets I cut and re-welded can be seen at:

I think it is something that you will have to get made up however. I
never seen a two piece rear sprocket that you could buy.

I hope this helps. Best of luck,
