@Jim Do I need one for the rear too? This just says for front. Any other washers or secret things I wouldn't know about? I looked up instructions on how to replace online and I don't see any other weird parts but want to be sure...also didn't say anything about the lock washer so there's that
The front sprocket lock tab has six sides you can bend. As long as it’s there, you have a side to bend. 650 Central has the lock set for the rear or did two weeks ago.

Alright guys, from eBay I got the 17/34 setup and the chain I linked to. Got the front and rear lock tabs Jim linked to from MikesXS. Threw a new clutch pushrod seal in there too. I almost grabbed a 36T from MikesXS too so I could try both, but I don't have time for all that. Thanks for the input and help! Hopefully everything arrives soon and I'll be able to fumble my way into getting these things on. NOT looking forward to taking off that damn muffler from hell again.

Marie, if you change your mind and want to try the 36 route without having to spend the cash I still have mine. You can have it if you want for the price of the padded envelope to ship it. No pressure, just making the option available
