Hey guys, I am getting slop going into 2nd all of time up and 50% of time going down. Some times getting Slightly stuck in 2nd going into 3rd. I have never done any transmission work, this will be my first attempt. So anything outside of the shop manual I should look out for? Also any good places to get new transmission parts? I do have a used motor with a good trans from a xb12s I can pull parts from, current motor is xb12r same year.

Too bad there isn't a trap door and you have to split the cases.

I have converted 2 or 3 XB engines to trapdoor tranny some years ago - but that would probably not pay out for a street engine. So yes - a complete teardown is unfortunately on the scedule.

How did it happen? Did you abuse your transmission? Did you shift without using clutch lever? How many miles on your motorcycle?

No abuse from me, 23000 miles. I have 2 motors and want want to learn how to do a full teardown and rebuild. Bucket check list for me is to do both motors then rebuild another bike with the 2nd motor.

If you have the time and a few extra bucks, it would be worth stripping the spare tranny and sending it to R&D Motorsports and have them work their magic on it. They will clean, blast and magnaflux each part, replace bad parts and machine the dogs for positive engagement. Would be as close to bulletproof as an XB tranny can get.
