This is my first chain and sprocket replacement so I'm in new territory.
Get a calculator, divide the number of teeth on the rear by the number of teeth on the front equals final drive ratio. Mendo's number's didn't sound right to me either, so I had to check.
I usually run 14/49, with a 14 on the front you need to keep a closer eye on the chain slider.
Touched up my 93 frame with appliance paint today making ready for the CW mill.

Quick question that I am sure you've all gone over a million times: a comprehensive-as-possible, light-as-possible, portable-as-possible, set of tools for my XRL. I am excited by the simplicity of this anachronistic air-cooled bike and assume the right "Leatherman" -plus-some-more-stuff could take down a bike like this to pieces and parts, right?

If your willing to spend $ they have some titanium wrenches out there.

Yup, check the toolkit thread: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=262998

Here's mine, everything needed for *my* XRL and then some... it's served me well so far:
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...postcount=1208
I've made some changes since then, it's an evolution.

If you want a good toolkit for your bike, use it exclusively when you work on your bike at home.

THis won't be as comprehensive as I posted somewhere else, but:

-1/4" ratchet w 8,10,12,14mm socket & 1" extension, 10mm universal joint socket
-ratheting screwdriver with phillips #2, straight #2 and 1/4 socket adapter, and a "magnetic drill extension."
-6,8,10,12,14,15,17 combo open end wrenches
-5,6MM allen keys.
-OEM sparkplug socket with a 1/4" socket welded into it.
-extra sparkplug
-masterlink
-jb weld
-loctite (blue)
-chain tool
-fuel filter
-schrader valve cores, valve nuts, valve core remover
-co2 pump, hand pump
-patches
-multitool (think leatherman)

I have everything I need in there to do a top end in the field. Maybe a few other tools that I'm not thinking of and I'm not getting out of bed to go check the bag unti tomorrow. That should get you started on a list.

Guy advertised this as a CRF. I don't believe him now, but the price (120$) was too good to pass up for the hardware. Anyone got a lead on this. Same stem as the CRF, everything looks right except for the fork caps and the shields on the outers at the seals.

Looks like a 2000/2002 CR125. Look at the caliper mount. It will accept the XRL caliper. Don't need the later CRF caliper bracket.

The stock tool kit included 18mm spark plug wrench (socket). 10, 12,17, and 24mm box end wrenches. 8, 10, 12, and 14mm open end wrenches. #2, and #3 plus (philips) screw drivers. #2 minus (flat) screw driver. A 5mm hex wrench and a pair of pliers. This should give you an idea of sizes to start with.

I recommend some combination box, open end wrenches in 8, 10, 12, and 14mm. A combination 17, 19mm box end wrench. One of those 24mm combo lever wrenches, plus at least one other tire iron. At least a 5mm hex wrench. I have a 6 and 10 mm hex wrench also. some screw drivers. I use one of those 6 in 1 drivers. Pliers, I have needle nose and channel lock. Get the stock spark plug wrench or the motion pro equivalent. I carry a test light/probe. A small DMM would work. And don't forget some sort of air pump.

For more convenience, add a stubby ratchet, 3" extension, 8,10, 12, 14, 17mm sockets, and 5, 6, and 10mm hex sockets to the above. Also .004", and .005" feeler gauges.
