    Before summertime I'm planning to overhaul my r80gs gearbox.
    Since spare parts for airheads are scarce in Turkey I'll order them from UK etc.
    Therefore I need to know what should be ordered for a complete overhaul before doing the job.
    Bearings and seals can be sourced locally and I have the paper gaskets.
    But I don't know how many sets of shims should I order in various sizes. I guess they are cheap items and could be ordered beforehand.
    Also retain spring and neutral sensor are in my list.
    Do I need any other items?

    Thanks a lot.

    You'll need the 1mm washer that goes in front of the rear input shaft bearing. That gets crushed when you take the old bearing off. Maybe a new clutch boot. If the box is working fine, that should be about all you need.
