    I read up on those transmissions in the pre dakar thread and u have to turn the vehicle off to shift to reverse. Sounded serious damage could be done if you failed to follow a particular order.

    For the Africa Twin to Dakar operation Honda gave you three set of rear sproke, the original 49, the 54 you see already mounted on the photo and a 43!

    by the way, bikes 47 and 48 are still there, somewhere in the African desert, one of those things that don't happen anymore in the Dakar Rallye
