The dealership can't order the OEM sprocket from Honda either. It seems to be obsolete here in the US as far as I know. I did find that Sunstar makes the countershaft sprocket, but I'm not sure if this will be different from the JT sprocket I currently have on there. I know that Sunstar made Honda's sprockets for years so is it possible it is the same as an OEM?

Maybe send them an email? I can't think of a good reason they would make the sprocket smaller/thinner than the oem if they made the sprockets for Honda originally. Seems they would use the same specs. Please report what you find.

Have you tried ebay? Usually a pretty good selection of mechanical parts to be found there, since the bike was sold mostly overseas.

I looked on ebay a little; the problem is shipping and exchange rates can get pricey, so I was hoping to find something here in the states. I sent an email to Sunstar to see if it is basically OEM. I'm thinking I'll just buy the Sunstar and compare it to the JT one. Its the only sprocket I can find available for the 88!




On another note, I installed the new CDI, ignition coil, and kill switch today. While doing so I found the actual problem was not a malfunctioning CDI, it was a faulty wire from the ignition coil. I assumed that since I saw the ignition coil actually working, that is was working at the plug end as well. So now I have a perfectly good backup CDI and kill switch, just in case.

Store them in your Faraday cage so you're good to go after the EMP hits.

First I would check all your electrical connections, especially the coil and kill switch before buying a CDI. I never leave home without a spare CDI on board. Did you bump ( shut off) the kill switch while riding??

I assume you have the lights, horn, turn signals, starter working but no spark?
DST, I tried to save you some money, I had a feeling it was the coil.

I never mind spending money on the NX, I feel like any parts I buy will probably be obsolete soon so I might as well buy what I can while I can! Plus I have a couple big trips planned this year, and hope to achieve a goal I've had for many years about riding to Alaska.

The ignition coil was working properly, but the small end of the wire that connects to the spark plug boot had somehow become sorta frayed.

So Pablo, did you end up finishing up your NX turbo? I turbocharged my zx14, but I used a kit designed for the stock motor, didn't start from scratch like you. I also had a Yamaha Seca 650 turbo, that was a carb blow through system like your NX. The guys over on TT are dying to hear some more feedback on your project

Getting the NX to its current state has taken a whole lot of effort. Unfortunately there are a few things I wish I did differently; things that are expensive to change and that will wipe out a lot of work that I've done on the bike. So the bike kind of needed to sit on the back porch for a couple years while I forgot about all the effort I've put into it. I also needed to save up some more money. But fear not, just a couple days ago I ordered a brand new Garrett GT1241 turbo for the bike. Now I need to start redesigning the intake/exhaust. There will be updates soon...

The sprocket is the same for the XR600R to 1990 and all the XL600
Sprocket specialists make one 5033 is the part number.
I don't think the 7 spline one wears as badly as the later 14 spline version.

Thanks! nice link I looked it up RD02540 but doesn't seem to fit any of the two A / B models. Though when looking at the 20Kw mine matches the preformance :(
But also mentioned is the "Hauptdüsen" (Main jets) with sparepart number I will check that once i get it out of winter storage.
But having just bought the insulator "Vergaser Ansaugstutzen" i can see this is at least the fit for the 35kw one (16211MN9000) :-)

What code is on the carburetor?
You'll see it stamped on the side.
