    Any homelite guys out there there. I need to know if i can put a c-9 .404sprocket on a super xl automatic. I have a bunch of .404 chains that fit the xl, but the xl sprocket is for .375. Thanks

    Don't have them in front of me at the moment, but I doubt a C series sprocket will fit a Super XL. If you want 404 on it, its pretty easy to find center drive sprockets with a replaceable rim, so you can use 3/8 or 404, just swap the rims out. Sprockets are all over the place for less than $20 and rims are usually around $3 - $4 each. I'm not sure running 404 on a Super XL is a good idea though. Its gonna put a good bit of extra load on the saw, and Super XLs aren't that big.

    Im not sure youll like the SXL with .404 either, it will slow it down considerably.
