Color me Gone
Well I had to pull Daniii's engine and split the cases today because of a shift problem. Daniii and a couple of others replaced his shift shaft last week and then the bike would not stay in gear. I can report that the shift shaft replacement can cause problems. If you let the shift shaft slip back far enough during the install what will happen is the spring that holds the shift drum in place will fall under the retainer for it and you no longer have pressure on the shift drum to hold it in gear. We are doing an update to Dan's trans with new shift forks and update drum anyway but I wanted to report that it is possible during the shift shaft install to have other problems and require the cases to be split to repair. Will take some pictures and post later.
