Wanted Africa Twin Chain and sprocekt Central America

Hello

I have been traveling around on my AT for over a year now and now I am heading back to the U.S. through central America. The only problem is my sprockets are gone and now I am limping along north bound hoping for parts. I looked in San Jose but they didn´t have the parts so now I am heading north. Does anyone have an idea where I might find some sprockets.

Brad

Can't help with a supplier, but I've had sprockets "reconditioned" in Central America, by having a new set of teeth welded on to the existing sprocket.

I got the parts

Just wanted to say thanks for the help and that I got the parts. It just tooke the right person to ask. After I told my story to the honda shop in Monteverde he called San jose and after a couple of knows they finaly found the parts and put them on the next bus to Monteverde and they were the right parts.

Thanks Brad
