Hey Steve, hows the leg? Ready to rumble ?
I forgot to pm you regarding the countershaft...sorry bout that. I found a new one in a dealership
that went bust and was selling parts at factory cost. I lucked out and they had one. Thanks
again for the help though.

Ill just replace yes. Better to e safe, right? Already alked to the guy to send me some
good pictures of the NX650 gearbox.

By the way, Steve, which spring is recommended to replace on the kickstart assembly?
The big one that locks it to the case?

If someone has that little plastic thingy that fits inside the kicksarter spring laying around
and wants to throw it my way, Itd be great.
