    Main 583.33.008.006 27z
    counter 583.33.011.009 18z

    What I don't understand is how can a 27 tooth m/s match up to the same 18 tooth c/s which is in my box now? My original is 22/18.

    There is apparently also a 21 c/s (part58333011007).

    No... he was trying on my helmet to determine what size to get for himself... wanker.
    Then he got down on his knees, in front of me, with my wife standing near by... Then we went to the Vancouver SuperCross. :lol3

    Yeah well I never did like the wide space between first and second on that bike, and I heard they changed that in 97, so if I'm gonna open it up I might as well try to get a closer 1st to 2nd and drop in a taller 5th.

    I'm gonna have to do some serious parts ficheing. As it is I blew a fork seal on the old marzochi forks on a 1700 mile ride last weekend so the old thing needs a bit of work.

    BTW, I'm picking up my slightly used 625sxc next week, anyone know the best setup going to keep the fork seals alive on those 43 USD forks? Those forks look a might vulnerable down there.
