    I'm deeply jealous of your the size & cleanliness of your garage/workshop!

    Good luck with the bike.

    Since those splines are larger than the seal . . .

    Can the splines be removed and replaced without disassembling the gearbox?

    Holy dogsnot! That input is fuxored. Replace it now. You can get it as a separate part. If your dealer looks at you like you are insane, call up Moto International.

    To be honest I hav only messedwith the 4 speed tranny that predates yours by some 20 odd years. On that one though, it was just a circlip. the inner sleeve of the input hub has a set of keys machined into it that goes onto keyways on the shaft. ( I call em keys and ways because there are far to few to cal 'em teeth)

    Sould be a walk in the park

    FYI I like the guzzi input set up better than the bmw one. Sure the hub wears out aboutthe same time the clutch does. But should you ave an oopsie with the teeth on it, you dont have to replace the whole damned shaft

    Oh and hang on to the old one. The factory clutch centering too is basically one of those input hubs. Weld the hole shut and drill it to take a bolt that matches the threads in the crank. ta-da clutch centering tool.
