Yes, that's the cover. Take note of where the gear lever is so that you can put it back in the same position (10mm needed). That's about all you need to pull apart other than backing off the axle nut and chain adjusters to slide the tire forward for working room.

The front sprocket may have a chain guide held in place by two bolts. After market sprockets usually don't have the bolt holes for the guide. You don't need the guide so don't panic if you new sprocket is missing the bolt holes.

1. take off left lower fairing.
2. disconnect neuatral safety switch connector (green)
3. remove sidestand/gear shift assy.
4. Undo speedo cable
5. Remove sprocket cover (do not remove slave cylinder)
6. Remove chain guide
7. Remove sprocket bolt.
Assembly is the opposite: FSM calls out for torque settings for sprocket bolt & gear shift bolt.

Can someone clarify for him that he will or will not need to remove the side stand and gear shift lever on his year model. I have a 93 model, and even though the manual called for it to be removed, I did not have to.

Pop up a link, might be tempted myself!

I've done this job and there was no need to remove the side-stand or the neutral switch, mines a 1991.

There is an alignment mark on the gear shift pedal and shaft, though on mine it's very faint and I missed it the first time

Yup done this once or twice ...... never takeoff the side stand either for the 1990 or
my 1993, like Hawk sez watch for the alignment dimples on the gear shaft and lever

New chain and sprockets is always a good feeling.
Don't forget the WD40.

Oh, and here's a service manual if you don't have one....
