    I might be interested in that GS. I can't give you much for it. I hear the transmissions in those things are junk.

    (Seriously, let me know when you are selling it.)

    :lol3

    Will do Jim. Although my Two Stroke Tuesday crew here in Louisville knows that I'm getting rid of it and a couple of them have called dibs. Then again those dibs have always been called when they have a drink in their hand:D

    Seriously though, I'm looking to get 3K out of her when the time comes.

    Wait until I tell them about the transmission.:lol3

    How many miles? Bags? Heated grips? Are the HES and brake lines original?

    This is REALLY gonna cut into my FZ1 plan.

    In any event, good luck with it. It sucks to have a bike you can't fully trust.

    It's actually in pretty good shape. 86ishK miles, everything works, just had a new HES and belt put on it less than 1000 miles ago, Anakee3's with plenty of life, Remus, etc, etc. Just has the skip. I'll even throw in the bike rack! And to be honest, I'd trust taking the thing to Alaska. I just want a Yamaha.

    I just picked up a M97 tranny and thinking about putting the input shaft out of my M94 in it.

    So know it seems that I have a bearing or two going bad in addition to the skipping. Haven't been able to find an M97 yet. Will take silver or black at this point!

    I recently bought a '95 with a suspect box, although I have yet to ride it in anger.

    So I might dig into the box to check things out, what do we undercut, the 'pins' only, or the holes also?
    What about hardening? Is it doable on a mill, or grinding?, What angle?
    And after machining, hardening again?

    Inquiring mind wants to know. :D

    Paul,

    Mouthfulloflake shows you what the dog gears look like after being undercut. I recently picked up another M-97 with new bearings and I am thinking of putting the input shaft out of my M-94 in it. I found a used M-97 out of a 99 R1100R way back when I was having problems with my M-94, same gear ratios and that is what is in my bike now. Works great.

    I know how they look like when undercut, but I like some howto.
    Like how is it cut, milled, grind, and heat treated?

    I also recall some gears have holes where the dogs from the next gear connect, how to taper those holes?

    Paul.

    Yes.

    2.19846 degrees and yes they get cut, and milled, and the new surface must be made hard again.
