I ordered a talon groovelight 14 tooth front countersprocket for my XR650L off of the thumpertalk store I just got it today and it looks awsome. :cry: But when I went to put it on it was very tight and I could just barley get it to start to go on and I started using a hammer with the old sproket to push it on the whole way but I stopped and thought I should ask someone if this mite be the wrong sprocket:eek: The package that it came in says XR600 '91-'03 and part # TG345 GL but I thought the 650L and 600 had the same countershaft spockets?? :cry: :cry: So should I not go any further and try to get it off and return it or should I try to put it on the rest of the way?? Please help O and I just recently got an Iron man 47 tooth rear and it fit perfectly and looks badazz too.:cry:

Thanx

The splines on the 600 and 650 are the same is the are the fine spline shaft. I run a sprocket for the xr600r on my 94' 650L. the splines could have some rust or dirt on them. clean the shaft well and apply a little grease to the shaft. The tighter the splines the longer it will last on the shaft. If a light tapping is needed it's ok. If you are driving it on with a heavy hammer, you will damage the sprocket and the shaft.

Im kinda doubtful that its right cause my old sprocket slides right on to the shaft with no tapping or anything. The talon will go on the very tip of the shaft by just using my hand but to get it to go any further I have to use a hammer. I think im gonna take it off before I end up doing any damage. What sprocket would you guys reccomend I should get that will fit right.:cry:

Mine's a Sunstar steel sprocket, got it from Chaparral. Be careful of some of the namebrand hardened steel sprockets. I've read some horror stories from folks who have run them that the sprockets are made of a harder steel than the countershaft causing the shaft splines to wear more than the sprocket. Costing about a $600 bill if you have a shop fix it. I've seen the advertisements as well and it sound great to not have to change the sprocket because it wears out to soon but I'd rather have the sprocket wear than the countershaft. Hope this helps.

Check and see if there are any burrs or anything on the new sprocket. If not call the TT store and maybe get a replacement.

The countershaft sprocket, or cs sprocket, is a slightly loose fit over the splines of the cs. The fit of any other sprocket, aftermarket or stock, should be the same as the stock assuming it and the cs are in good condition. Could be a mix up with the packaging. Send that one back because it is not the right one.:cry:

I'm using a Sprocket Specialists 14-tooth cs sprocket with no problems switching between it and the stock 15-tooth regularly. Sun Star, Renthal or OEM for the later year XR600R's will fit all years of the XRL.

Just a side note. I have a 13,14 and the stock 15 and they all slide right on.
The gearing change made a big difference get a replacement and you will enjoy it. The extra punch is fun. :cry:
