Question Getting parts for a Yamaha XT600E (2000)?

Hi,

I'm a Dutch guy on a trip from Alaska to Argenine right now on a Yamaha XT600E (2000). I thought the my XT would be sold everywhere around the world, but they where only sold in the USA till 1995.

My front sprocket has had better days and the front sprocket form a 1995 XT won't fit my bike. So the part can't be ordered easily here in the US.

I think I can reach south America (Peru/Bolivia) with the parts I have brought with me, but then I'll need a new front sprocket.

I've informed by a German shop what it will cost to ship a few parts to Costa Rica, but that will cost me 150 euro only on shipping (it will be there in 5-7 days).

Can anyone give me an answer to the next questions?
a. Is the XT600E sold south of the USA after 1995?
b. Is the front sprocket (15 tooth) available south of the USA?
c. Is there a cheap and good way to get a part like this shipped in to a place along the route?


The JT partnumber is: jtf1577-15, but it may be an other brand, as long as it fits and is a good sprocket.

Please help me out! the trip is pretty expensive already so I would like to keep that 150 euro in my pocket to buy me some gas.

Any tips are greatly appreciated!
