    So I have discovered that my fuel tap isnt working the hard way yesterday.....
    Got a front puncture and obviously there is no center stand so the easiest option was to lay the bike on a side and work on the wheel. The fuel started dripping through the carb breather hose so i close that off. Then it started leaking a substantial amount through the airbox and air filter. Not only it was dangerous but also wouldnt let me fix my flat.
    Fortunately I was with my mate so he helped me balance the bike on some rocks

    Is this faulty tap a reason for missing fuel? I didnt ride my bike for about 2-3months in the summer and when I finally did I have noticed that the consumption was about 40% higher. I think the petrol might have just evaporated through the carb

    That doesn't make sense because the floats and needle should stop the passing of fuel. I would look at the petcock, floats, & needle. replacing all 3 should be less than 100 RMB. Shitty China gas could have caused problems.

    I would be more worried about the gas that didn't come out of the airbox and headed into your cylinder via the intake valves.

    Well, after the whole thing the bike starter and ran fine. I will replace the petcock and check the float and needle. And will replace the oil as it prolly has fuel in it, although I just did that 500km ago

    Does anyone know whether the front sprocket (most likely according to taobao) of Honda Xr400 will fit the X5?

    More importantly
    Will xr400 wheel bearings fit the X5?

    Im going to Europe soon and could buy some parts. Sprocket I can measure but the bearings require a bit more precision

    My advice would take the bits of the X5 with you back to the EU and then match them up.

    I thought about it but wanted to avoid taking the bearings out.

    10 mins job and you will make sure you get the correct one.
    Also, most good makes are marked with the inner and outer size in mm.?

    Just take the wheels out. Remove the dust cover ring and read the bearing number and brand on the out bearing ring. The numbers are something like 6605 ...
    Then put dust cover ring in assemble wheel. Story done.
    Anyway I would not carry that stuff from Europe. Bearings you can find from industry supplier in China -> FAG, NSK, etc.
    I bought all engine and wheel bearings for my X2 in good quality in China.

    Oh, ... And ifvyiu can only find sealed bearing (normally with Z at the end) just use a little screwdriver and remove the seal ring gently. Then you have a normal bearing :-)

    yup, easiest way to check bearings - see marking on bearing, exactly as Shuben said.

    for sprockets I could advise to check this link and see whether Honda XR400 sprockets size match dimensions of Shineray's
    http://www.jtsprockets.com/catalogue/model/877/

    maybe you even don't need to take off X5 sprocket, just check some links on taobao, where seller show sprocket dimensions and then compare them to dimensions from link above.
