Now that I refreshed my spare tranny and added the circlip and new bearings it is time to tackle the tranny that matches my bike.
Big question is circlip or no circlip???? Got her all apart tonight and surprise surprise it was there! Bizzare, thought they only started putting it back in in '95... Oh well saves me $60 in machining costs.
I have taken time elapse photos with the gopro so I will get around to posting the tear down and reassembly as it happens.
My only complaint about my tranny before I tore it down was that sometimes I needed to lift the shifter before making the next down shift... Might not have been the tranny as I found the shifter quite stiff on it's shaft.
Everything looks quite nice inside the tranny... Will take a closer look at everything in coming weeks.
