I have an XL700-VA 9.
If I remove the gear lever & the little cover over the final drive sprocket, will I instantly be able to determine whether it already has had the modified sprocket fitted. ?

That was not the question !!
Can you tell if a modified sprocket is already fitted by just removing the cover ???

There are different types and manufacturers of modified front sprockets...as long as you know what an original or a pattern one looks like, you will spot the differences..best do a google search images for both ! to get some pics up....

Could someone please post a photo of the OEM Transalp final drive sprocket so that I can determine what is fitted to mine.

To be fair he was trying to help and it did answer the question you asked
Ironically, Andy may have given you the answer you wanted but never asked the question for!

A quick 2 second google search...
Ok, not an Alp but essentially looks the same.

Whatever sprocket you have, make sure it is fitted the right way round ie the sprocket teeth nombers facing outwards - too many are fitted incorrectly.

They work out about the same price as original, when you consider the original expensive locking washer that wears out as well ! is not required with the KK...which also drives on more spline faces...

Some aftermarket sprockets now have the rubber sound damper like the oe item so seeing the damper doesn't necessarily mean it's oe Honda - those are probably 'JT' sprockets looking at the part number stamped on it. Theres another company called Oblerone or some such.

The KK sprockets look like the best solution out there for those with or overly worried about shaft wear.

Mr Towyvalley...Hang in there new bloke..started out a little bit iffy ?.and rubbed up a few very very very knowledgeable and helpful bikers the wrong way..I guarantee you will need advice and help in some way later..play it safe next time around..People say these bikes are bomb proof..BUT..Nothing is ! !...good luck with the new purchase, and post the results up as you fix things ; as it may help others as well....PS..If you need a front sprocket..go the KK route..and replace the rear and chain as a set..with a descent quality make !

Yes that's the way to access the front sprocket and shaft to check for wear.
Hi Wicky & all others who contributed to my original post.
Firstly I wish to apologise, to Wicky & anyone else who my response may have offended. I was just having a bad day & over reacted.
I hope that my apology is well accepted.
I have purchased the KK Bikes modified sprocket & have started to strip out in readiness for its installation. Question is, as I have no center stand, am I going to be able to get enough free play in the chain to enable the removal of the old part & fitting of the new part. I don't really want to disturb the rear chain adjustment if it can be avoided. Will I be able to slip the chain off the rear sprocket. Will that do the trick. Has anyone a centre stand for sale. Don't really want to fork out £100 + for a brand new unit. A damaged one might do as I could get it repaired. Thank you in advance to those who I hope may contribute

I have just fitted a KK Bikes superpinion. Apart from a bit of a struggle fitting one of the screws that retain the locking plates, no bother. I had to release a lot of the tension on the chain to get the slack required to remove the old sprocket & fit the new but that was soon reset. Just got the pig of a job of part removing the engine crashbars/engine covers in order to refit the plastic sprocket cover but there is no rush to do that. Its rideable without it !!!
