As always, thanks for posting the beautiful photographs, Bryce.
I'm glad you got a Moose Racing, XR650R C/S sprocket for your bike. These sprockets, manufactured by PBI, in Oregon, are thinner than some other XRR sprockets, and have a deeper chamfer. Therefore, the PBI/Moose Racing, XR650R C/S sprockets are easier to install on the XR650L countershaft.
If I may ask, why did the sprocket you got from Felipe not work for you?
