Hey guys I had to join because I too would love to be able to get my hands on a 2nd and 5th gear for my '01 XR650L. I can get the 2nd gear in Canada but the 5th gear is no where to be found. Anyone know where I can order one online?

The 2nd gear I can get but the 5th gear is not listed at any of the dealers I talked to. Can someone tell me where in North America they got the 5th gear.


On a side note: This is bugging the hell out if me. Can someone comment as to how the heck the tooth count on one gear can be changed without changing its mated gear or center-center distance of the 2 shafts? I can't help but think the gear teeth are not meshing fully. Can someone explain?

Here is the 2nd gear

The point of this thread is that you CAN'T get the 5th gear in North America. We're trying to get it at a reasonable cost from somewhere else in the world.

I to was wondering about this issue but my concerns were laid to rest when I saw the NX gear next to the XRL gear. Both gears have the same outside diameter and the NX gear teeth are slightly thicker or broader as to take up some more space due to being 1 tooth less. I just put a NX gear in one of my XRL's and am wondering why in the hell Honda doesn't build the bikes with this gear. It's wonderful.

what he said. I suppose you could find it somewhere in NA, but the hunt could be long.

I found a complete 1995 NX650 transmission on ebay.de for $175 shipped. I got a price of $160 EUR plus shipping for a new 5th gear so I am happy that for $175 I got both the 2nd and 5th gear. Thanks for all the info guys. Now I need a gasket kit and I'm set to tear my engine apart.

I got the transmission from Germany that I ordered. It was off a 95 NX650. Both the 2nd and 5th gears are in perfect shape. I might tear my engine apart this coming weekend. Thanks to the OP and others that posted. All the info I needed was here in this thread.

I gott it!!!

Well I took 3 week to get it but I have the fifth gear! It's just going to be pricey no matter what. I paid $225 and it was a special order he placed in the UK. They in turn had to order it from Honda. So there was a UK tax on it but what the hell, what other bike can you swap trans gears? My plans are to run the 2nd and 5th with a 15/48. I'll see what happens. Lewisport is checking avalibilty on more and I'll post the info as soon as I get it.

awesome, thanks for the update. Looks like we have two options then gentlemen, pay more for faster, or less for slower, as it always seems to be. Do we have anyone that's ready to do this now? perhaps we can do one now, and one later.....
