this was a dog to shift, made a bush tool to hold the output sprocket then had to get onto the bench and make up about a meter of breaker bar for each lever.

Seeing as how you are this deep into it, it would be a good idea to replace the output shaft with a more recent one that uses the fine splines.

splitting them was quite time consuming. in the end i had to chock them up on the top case and tap the primary shaft to get that back dowel off.

also who has an opinion on the gear condition and the output splines?

got a friend who has an ultrasonic cleaner so i think i will pop the flywheel off when i get the bolt, clean them up and sling them over to him.

is painitng them a bad idea? will it insulate them?

actualy if anyone wants to suggest anything else to switch out now would be a good time.

thanks

Why did you have to cut the kicker off?

It was welded on. I don't see why people do fix things correctly. This XR seems to be in good hands now.
