The sprocket as a component of motorcycle manufactured to transmit rotary motion between two shafts are supposed to possess wear resistant properties. This motorcycle part are however produced in different wear resistance levels especially low, medium and high. Meanwhile, low grade sprocket (imitation) are known to wear off easily, however this challenge are usually tackled by increasing the surface hardness. Furthermore, carburizing process is one of the different ways to increase surface hardness of sprockets in direct contact with chains. This study therefore aims to utilize nutmeg shell as an activated carbon for hardening sprocket. The experiments was conducted with carburizing process at temperatures of 850°C to 900°C and 1 hour holding time then quenched in water, brine or oil media. The outcome of this study showed mechanical properties of imitation sprocket increased from 103.2 HV to 452.65 HV at 850°C with water quenching.
