Come now chaps - anyone can see that the neutral switch is at precisely 8:40.............., and by the shadow I reckon it's AM and not PM

I can't help but think it could be a 2011 model in those colours, and with black rims. Very Nice.

For those of you who have TA/AT hybrids or are otherwise interested, I posted some plastics and other misc parts for a TA on the TA mod thread....

Speaking of front sprokets...

I had the first chance Sunday to pull off the skirts, tank, covers, etc. on the 650 XRV, and found a "surprise". Not overly surprised as this is an old girl, however it came with "new chain and sprockets". Chain and rear looked new - so...

Yeah, the front is fresh as well, but once the cover was removed I saw (sorry no photos) that there were two retainer plates holding down a non OEM sproket with no vibration rubber. I went to remove the plates, but the first was not the new one, and was burred up to the point that to get it off the shaft I may have made it unserviceable. No spares at hand and working at a friends house so... I have a call into the Honda dealer to get an OEM 16T ( pn 23801-MN-000 ) before going further. I have yet to see what the shaft looks like.
However:
After being told about, and spending some time roaming around, XRV.UK.org I had learned - after the purchase - that one of the critical checks / weak points of these rigs are the output shaft splines - chains can easily be run too tight / poor sprocket replacement history. Other than "Island Engineering", the only solution is a full pull down
So -
How thick is this rubber on the stock sprocket? Is this a common way to affix a non OEM sprocket? or... Should I start drinking heavily (at a cheap bar as this may be a budget destroyer!) ?
... I prefer to drink to celebrate...not

Pic of an OEM front sprocket. Please..no grief on how spotless it is. I've heard it all before.
Their is debate on OEM front spocket vs aftermarket and I've heard Honda put it their mostly for noise reduction. AT owners have run aftermarket front spockets with no appreciable spline wear....so the choice is yours. I run OEM as it might save my output shaft bearing in the long run. After replacing my output shaft bearing once already I decided to try something different.

I believe that is a Leo Vince exhaust. I have one and it looks identical to that.

Their appears to be another RDO7A in Western Canada. We literally bumped into each other when my wife and I went up to Banff recently celebrating our 22nd wedding aniversery.
It's the same year as mine and came by way of Italy and S. America where the previous owner sold it in British Columbia.



...and my lovely wife of 22 years.

Thank You for the insight, experience, and knowledge Gentlemen!

GSPD750, Stormforce8, Ladder106, A-Wind, Uneji, and others - you have been most kind. As you extend these courtesies please know I look forward to a day when I can repay them, be it you all or the next noob-er that falls into this fold.

There are a multitude of reasons I bought this Af (Costa) - Rica Twin. One of them was a perception of access to Honda parts through out the Central and South American market. I am quickly finding out I was mistaken... Two moto shops told me the same thing today - the National distributor has nothing for this model and in fact did not recognize the part # I provided (found on XRV.UK) for a simple sprocket. Did I get that # wrong, or am I in for an education on Global parts searching?

My eyes are opening to the fact that the only place to find parts may be "David Silver Spares" in the UK. Could that correct? Shipping / clearing will be a @#$%'er here and I shudder to think what it will be like off the beaten path to the South... better be packed for long lay overs should such be so!

Oh - no comment on the state of your machine GSPD, but who invented that dirt/grease/grime/muck/mud repellant you got your mitts on? Teflon/Moly - Ionized Lithium Bye-bye Gook'ium from the Acme Novelty Company of Walla-Walla, Washington?

Gawd...you guys never heard of a pressure washer.

As for the front sprocket...you forgot the '8' in that # you posted.
It should be 23801-MN8-000.....or also try your Honda dealer for the alternate # 23801-MV1-000

Alternate numbers - Yeah!

Keen eye GSPD, pretty confident I did manage to give the correct # to the shops slight chance not... I will try the other one tomorrow.

My full dirt steeds certainly had seen the pointy end of the pressure wands, but with all the nooks and crannys of the AT - I am still impressed with the close attention to detail

Good clean fun, in a dirty filthy way!
