polarized and fiep :
Thanks alot for helping out here
Reason I ask is that I would prefer (bit I do not need to) to shop locally, with brands like SKF, Koyo... I can get bearings for reasonable prices. Maybe it's just me that is not familiar and not trusting brands like All-Balls?
My simple brain associate All-Balls with a men's only pub or something
Maybe I should give them a try. After all it's very cheap (more garage beers).

thirstybuck ;

On mine (using AFAM sprocket and original (31.000KMs) plate/bolts, the sideway play is considerable, but I belive it is not as much as yours (not big difference though). When I replaced the sprocket, I belive the old one was original, at least it the bike has been serviced by a Honda garage, there was some red silicone-liquid-gasket-like stuff in the gap, so free play was a bit less and "softer". I just removed this and replaced with new sprocket, and could not feel any siginificant difference. I'm not an mecanic (far from), but have replaced some sprockets trough the years, and cannot remember I have seen this much free play on any bike.

Hmm, looks normal – but as I said, the wear of the countershaft is crucial. It’s kind of hard to tell with the bare eye; before I took the picture I thought there was no wear. Only after zooming the pic I saw that the shaft lost actually some material. Btw, it looks like you got an original sprocket, since that is the only one that got that rubber mounts.

Honda used that "flexible" mounting of the sprocket on all dirt bikes of that period (dunno about the CRF etc.) and a lot of drivers got puzzled by that. I was told that the side to side play is necessary to counteract torsions of the frame/swingarm for instance during hard landings.

I heard of some problems with that flexible mounting on the much stronger XRV650 Africa Twin. Many drivers had to buy new countershafts, some of them tried to glue (no kidding) the sprocket to the shaft, but I don’t know if that is advisable. And there had been many discussions among XRV drivers about the quality of aftermarket sprockets, apparently some are made of harder steel than the shaft (JT), or are not made with the necessary precision (sunstar).

I don’t know if that is the case with the NX250, but given the consequences, I would go with the OEM sprocket (plate and bolts are sold separately). And a bit of grease and chain lube from time to time shouldn’t hurt ;-).

Countershaft repair.

I know this will sound WRONG to many, but it does work:

Remove or disconnect battery.

Remove sprocket.

Plug in electric arc welder

Do a very quick bead of weld on the countershaft.

Cool immediately with water to avoid melting the oil seal.

Repeat the above two steps until the worn bits are built up.

Use a dremel, small grinder or needle files to file new splines into the countershaft.

It's a most effective $2 repair.

I've done perhaps 35 thousand km's on my bike now.

No big mechanical issues - but it has had some issues with the valvetrain.

Basically the bike was in Cambodia for a long time before i got her and the valves in it are re-ground and sound clattery as hell lately.

I want to buy new valves, seats and seals in the interest of preventative maintenance.

I just know Honda parts. Are there any aftermarket valves out there?

You sure its not the cam chain tensioner http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...postcount=4993 ?



I tried this fix since my engine was also making a lot of unpleasant noises - and it worked - at least for the last 3000kms ;-)

I am going to replace the camchain and tensioner while I'm in there, as I last did so over 30'000km back - but the valvetrain has had dubious work done in the past and I want them returned to the best possible condition.
