Ok did the squidly thing and really test my bike out on the street and it is still doing it but only in 3rd now. I am thinkin now either I splitt the case and change out the 2 worn gears in the trans or I try and change out the shifting drum with a spare I have and see if that will hold me till this winter..... Still not decided... Miss this weekend and fix it totally or try and do just the shift drum and possibly have to drop out the motor still anyways to change the gears.... It's tough I really want to race this weekend.

where did you get the spanner wrench tool from? i need one asap
I ordered mine from kneedraggers.com

After taking the clutch cover off, how exactly do I remove the clutch? I am working on finding a spanner tool to borrow for the next step. . . .

OK nvm stupid question, I undid the clutch springs and took them out and then removed clutch plates.

Anywho, Since I haven't got a hold of the tool yet I tried a block of wood b/t the wheel and swingarm and the wood just got ate up so yea, gotta have the tool.

I have a large torque wrench that seems to provide enough leverage and I can use a pipe for extra leverage if needed. I don't feel comfortable using an impact gun :confused:

I don't own an impact and use a long torque wrench to break it but an impact has gotta be easier for the first time. Mine has been taken apart before so it goes pretty easy. It's put on with like 100ftlbs.

You should have spoke up!!!! I'm play'in. What gear was jumping and and how many/which did you replace. The shift drum didn't look bad so I just kept taking it apart and the motor is now in pieces on the garage floor. I got the gears out and called it a night.
Did you change yours out yourself and how do you get the C clips off the trans shaft? I am gonna have to go find a tool at the store tommorow. Last time I split the case I swapped out complete shafts and didn't change single gears out on the shafts.

2nd, 3rd, 5th, and 6th, the drum, and 2 forks were all replaced. but no, i didnt do it myself. initially i was under the impression my warranty would cover it....

2nd jumped the worst, but 3rd would also.

im not exactly sure how they run in there...but i think 2nd drives 5th, and 3 drives 6th..or something.

if one is worn, and needs replaced..likely its counter part is worn, and should be replaced also...
does that makes sense?

youve got the dogs, that stick out the side..that get wore. but youve also got the corresponding holes the dogs engage into. that also get wore...and should be replaced. clear as mud?

Yeah that does make sence and the crappy part is it starts to add up quickly when ordering all the parts. I do have another whole set of gears so I might swap them out instead of buying new but I am not sure yet. Thanks for the info though.

If you are doing the gears then everything after the motor is out is easy.

I have been drinking...... LMAO!!!! Damn that fork is toast. Was that the brake side or the shifter side fork? Brake I think is lower gears and shifter is upper.

That was the shifter side! I'm praying to god that the gears aren't worn! If I just had to replace the shift forks I would be totally fine with doing that! There about 50 bucks a pop!

I am having trouble trying to drop out the last remaining shift fork. In order to remove and inspect the drum I need that fork out of there. . . .
