I've already got some gaskets for the carb and a new air filter from Honda, a Keyster carb kit (i've heard good and bad things, so we'll see how it compares to what comes out of the carb) and a factory service manual off of ebay

I think tomorrow we'll be opening the engine up to see how bad the gearset is and if the metal bits did any damage elsewhere. Any pointers on taking the engine apart would be much appreciated, I've heard of special tools for the clutch... any way to avoid buying that sort of thing? Also, do people ever mess around with the dog teeth on the gears? On the rally cars the conditions of the dogs always made a huge difference, but I'm not sure if they will have such an effect on the small bike transmission.
