You two guys need to check the part shown in the phot and the locking lever that has a bearing that rolls against it.

No need to drain the oil, just lay the bike over or just drain the oil out the motor then put that back into the oil tank after running the motor for 30 seconds.

Bit of an update, the 990 is still fine, but I have recently traded it on a new 690. I had been wanting a 690 for about 6 months so finally bit the bullet. Regarding the 990 gearbox, the motor has to come out of the frame and be stripped/split. So a reasonably major job. The main culprit was one of the bearings that the shift drum relies on. It was binding. Various other parts were replaced as well including all 3 shift forks.
