Mine does. i commute every day. it'd be nice to have the low end for the low end, and the OD when i'm driving to work....

Sounds good, do you know how many RPM is the drop?

i don't, sorry, i'm not that technical. I suppose the rest of the answer would include the question, of what gearing (sprockets) are you running....

See Here:
http://www.revloc.com/index.cfm/id/2/Dirt-Bikes/

I won't be buying the regular Revloc.

Getting the 5th gear swap should leave more gas in the tank when I reach the trail head, this is my primary reason to do this swap. I suppose a case could be made that the FMX gearing is wide enough so that I wouldn't also need the dynaring, but when I think about the hard trails I've already been on and would like to go on again, I believe that having the dynaring will increase my off road smiles. Besides the dynaring is supposed to be adjustable so that you can run it just like the regular clutch by changing the clutch cable slack at the perch. It's push start capable, and I'm not certain that the $895 Revloc will do that.

The other case could also be made where having the dynaring and gearing for the highway will work with the stock XR gearing. No splitting of the case needed. But the clutch will be slipped more on the slow hard stuff and I wonder about excessive wear.

I like the idea of being able to relax the clutch hand and just concentrate on the trail obstacles. And $379 doesn't seem like too much to pay for this additional capability. To each his or her own

With 10 people committing to the group buy with the corresponding savings of +$50/person just in shipping charges alone, then I agree the group buy is worth the effort.

I did spend some time last night looking for a Honda OEM parts dealer in the Orient, no fruit. Searching in English seems to be limiting.

20 vs 21 tooth fifth gear means a 5% drop in rpm.

Finally, I think this is the kind of talk people were expecting in a thread about trannys.

Might want to try Werstern Honda in Scottsdale, AZ. Great parts people, price and shipping. I have ordered parts 4 or 5 times and they have beat everybodys prices.

Just to make sure I have my notes correct. In the parts diagram below, which numbers are being replaced when you change out both the second and fifth gear.

Hello,
Thank you for your email.

As we do not stock these gears we would have to order them from Honda Europe @111.36GBP (173.27USD) each. They have only 1 in stock and the eta for the other ones if you ordered immediately would be aprox 11th March to us. Shipping for 5 would be 32.00GBP (50USD)
Ok, so to be clear, that's $173 for just the 5th gear? Hmmmm, I guess I should try harder to find another source

Also, I don't think I'll buy the 2nd gear from England either.

yeah, i'm not in a hurry, I'll prolly just get the 2nd from my dealer here, 40$ and a month or two wait is ok considering, I have plenty of parts to buy to do this build.

I think I missed this.

What Honda motorcycle comes stock with the 5th 23491-MW2-780 gear? If it is year specific, that would be helpful also.
