    Broken countershaft and other mods

    My countershaft broke on my 96 xr400. As long as I have the cases split and the top end off, I'm going to upgrade the countershaft to a 99 as well as the Kickstarter spindle to a 99. Also a mikuni pumper carb. As long as I have it open what else should I switch out. Piston rings, 430 kit? It's got a 440 kit in it but I don't know how old it is and it leaks a little oil between the gaskets that aren't seated quite right because a few of the head bolts can't get past the gasket and one is snapped off at the threads and stuck in the case (maybe a helicoil or something stronger, I'm not sure). I assume I need a full gasket kit, -1999 countershaft Honda #23220-kcy-671 -Idler gear bushing (15 mm)Honda part #28222-kk0-000(with this bushing use your idler gear.don't buy a new one, unless its damaged) -washer Honda # 90452-701-000 (see fiche ) -oil seal Honda #91204-kcy-672 (behind idler) -Idler side countershaft bearing Honda #91004-kcy-761 99 Kickstarter assembly with 99 spindle oil seal and machine out the hole 1mm larger. Anything I'm missing or should know before I get going? Thanks

    Countershaft replacement XR400

    My 96 has the same issue. So the top end has to come off? With it off new rings are recommended? How about replacing it with a 430 kit? Anything else I should replace or look at wail it's all taken apart? Thanks
