    Hi, I need to replace the chain and sprockets. So far (45.000km) the sprocket shaft of my wife´s RD13 has seen only Honda sprockets (given the poor history of damaged sprocket shafts with the Africa Twin). However I hate to spend the extra dough since the DID kits usually come with a JT...
  5. Varadero

You would...
