Glad you are out riding and having fun. The gasser issues have nothing to do with crashing. Unless you are unfortunate enough to slam the gear shift lever into a rock! Which is one of the main issues, most bikes do not require the case split to change the shift shaft, the pro does. Most bikes have a full gear for the kick starter, the gasser has less than half a gear. And by the way I enjoy riding the Pro more than any other bike anymore. It just has a few quirks that could cause seriuos damage to the wallet. Even if the bike is NEW.
