Yeah, I could look at that, Jim. Thanks!

Don't know which of you made contact with Windbell, but they emailed me TWICE this morning. Coincidence, or do I owe someone a beer?
(Silly question to ask online, I know...!)

Cheers,

And an update on that hi-lo beam contact issue. It seems Honda doesn't sell any parts from that handlebar assembly individually, just the whole thing together. Bummer. Looks like its tinkering time.
Nice looking bike there, eh ......

Quick question. Does anyone know the contents of the OEM RD03 toolkit? I'm trying to piece one together before heading off to school... I can't seem to find it anywhere in the manual. Also, I've heard something about a Honda sparkplug tool. Is this a special tool only sold by Honda?

I made up my own tool kit as my bike did not come with one. I have a generic $5.95 spark plug socket tool that works just fine. You can assess the tools you need and make up your own kit. Assorted combo wrenches (8-17mm), Allen wrenches (3-8mm), a screwdriver with flipping Phillips to flat, vise grips, tire irons, duct tape, a small knife, safety wire and zip ties. I thow in an assortment of nuts, washers and bolts. Oh and leave a spot for the credit card. You'll learn that some tools you use a lot and others you'll want to add as you go along.

Jim.

Sprockets

Ok who know where to buy aftermarket sprockets for the RD07 in the USA?
It gets a little old talking to people on line and they can't get past the bike not being a U.S. model. Then I try to get them to see if there building anything for the Euro market.That leads to more headaches

By the way just in case you didn't know.

JIM, YOU ROCK DUDE!!!!

My brother is quite happy now.

Sprocket

The front sprocket you can buy it in the states through www.hdlparts.com or www.sprocketsspecialists.com. The part number is 23801-MN8-000 which is also used by Honda NT650 and vt600. I have one on my TA!

The rear one I think you need to buy it in EU or ask Jim to build one. There are two patterns, 5 or 6 bolts. I believe yours is 5 bolt pattern, with Honda part # 41200-MY1-930 (45T) .

You should be able to find aftermarket sprockets from any reputable motorcycle dealer. Honda has a very generic sprocket regime on their bikes and some other models are bound to have use the same ones. E.g. the NXR350 uses the same front sprocket as the CR125 and the same rear sprocket as an XR500.

I have always just walked into any bikeshop and just ask for a sprocket- they look it up in the books and you walk out. It works here in Australia as well and the AT was never imported here either. Unless your really want an original item...

But if you want the best sprockets in the world, try ChainGang, QLD, Oz.
Riding 40 countries, crossing three continents, we've had some sprocket issues... none with ChainGang.

Honda sprockets

The part numbers for A.T. do not match up to any U.S. model bikes.

When checking Euro models, same thing. So no, Honda dosn't always keep dipping into the parts bin and use the same stuff over and over.

That being said, sprockets that will work from Honda gets tricky because another model may use a sprocket with more or less teeth. I just don't have a shop sitting on every sprocket ever made for Honda sitting on a shelf, waiting fo me to bring mine in to match it up.

Sprockets seem to be like many parts on th A.T. like brake rotors, only made for the A.T.
