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.

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

Welcome Very nice! I do have to say the oversized wind screen looks bad. It may very well cut the wind from bouncing your head around, but it does nothing for the over all look of the bike.

That's just me, and who am I to tell you what looks good. I'm dumb enough to set up camp in poison ivy. Can you tell us what other goodies your bike has?

Xvr Humlan. Welcome to you also. Very nice action shots. can you tell us what you have for suspension?

Not to open up at discussion, but I just don't agree with you. So what if the number of teeth isn't exactly the same: going from a 46 to a 45 on the rear will make almost no difference that you can feel- 1 tooth in front = 2 teeth in the back. Dropping from a 16 to a 15 in front will increase your rpm at 120kph with 500 (from about 5500 to 6000)- You can work out the rest in terms of going smaller in front or bigger/smaller at the back and what that will mean.

A smaller front sprocket works harder and will wear out faster. You won't even notice the wear on the rear (unless its a dodgy chinese ripoff sprocket of poor quality). I play with sprocket sizes to suit the application and the terrain I'll be riding- e.g. for long sandy stretches, I drop down to a 15 front that gives me more grunt in 1st gear and reduces the amount of clutch I use, thus saving the bike.

Chains and sprockets are consumable items. I manage about 5000-6000km on a front sprocket if I work it hard. I can get about 10 000km if I only commute at a steady pace. The rear last at least twice that long, but I have never replaced a rear sprocket before I needed to replace the chain. I get about 20 000km out of an X-ring chain with a scot-oiler fitted.

That said, I know more sedate riders that get magical figures of 40 000km on a chain and 20 000km on a front sprocket. But personnaly, I like to ride my bike and not look at it

And on the part numbers- I don't trust Honda part numbers. The RD07 uses the same oil filter as the CB900 and others, but Honda will let you believe they don't. Don't know why. On sprockets: if the holes on the wheel or the splines on the shaft is the same, the pitch and width of the chain is the same- it'll fit. In the past, I needed to drill out the holes on the rear sprocket from 5mm to 6mm- the hub ring and placement of the holes were correct and it fitted just fine.

Some generic sprockets actually have more than one hole configuration drilled so that the sprocket can fit more than one model (with the same hub spec and chain width and pitch).

It sounds to me you are trying to make things difficult for yourself, but hey- if that works for you...

Sprockets

I think your putting more into what I said. I don't have time to figure out what sprockets will work. I know enough about sprockets that dropping a few in the back would be great.. I know for sure I don't want to drop any in the front. As far as oil filter goes, I can get the same stock filter from Honda by the part number listed for the Africa twin. Many part numbers will come up as vaild numbers for U.S. model bikes. Trust me when I say I have spent time looking on the web. I would like to switch to the 520 from the 525 chain and I see that the hawk has that availabe. I have all part number for my AT and I use a Honda online parts search for them.

better angle

wheatwhacker, This is a better angle of the windscreen and I must say I was wrong in saying it wasn't doing the bike any favors in the looks department. Very very nice.
