Hello, So I'm going through this /6 I picked up off of CL. It was not running and has sat for about 18 years. Well a lot of hours later I got it running good enough to drive it around the yard and up and down the street. In my opinion it runs and shifts great. The clutch and brakes are a bit grabby but I'm not concerned about those systems just yet..(in time!). I was warming it all up so I could drain all fluids in exchange for new ones. Im sorry , I did not take pictures because I want to be able to ignore the problem, but I indeed had shiny metal flakes (some as large as .5 mm to mayyybe 1mm square on the transmisssion drain plug magnet. ) I read Snobum's site after the fact and turned the rear wheel cold in Neutral and feel an almost imperceptable (is that a word!!?) amount of notchiness. I broke the oil pan gasket so I've got one on order from Hucky's but what that means is the bike is not running right now so I can't test it hot. So the big question is: I should 100% pull the tranny and send it in now, right? I shouldnt keep on riding it until I'm stranded, right? I have mentally prepared to fork out the cash to send it in so I'm ok with that, just need to know if I must. Secondly lets just go nuts: If I pull and send away that tranny, what else should I do since I'm in there, the clutch (or inspect it, anyway?) And if I'm in THERE!, what else should I replace! I have a long Minnesota winter coming up, a heated shop, and a willingness to try anything on this bike. I have not completed a leak down test yet so I can not say anything about the condition of the top end, but I'd like to get the frame painted or powder coated over the winter too, so I'm sure I'll be removing the engine too! Nathan.
