    You'll have to put the center cases back together to pull the clutch. You don't have to pull the crank.

    Can you see the broken part?

    It does look like the cage has failed and almost half the balls are missing, or is it a trick of the light?

    Have you owned it from new? Ever found any little balls?

    Wow. It does look like I'm missing some bearings but its just a trick from the oil/light angle. Never found anything of significance in the screens. 2nd hand since 4k miles. [​IMG]

    I have the gear lever go tight/stick and the loosen on my old 950. The cause was elongated shift fork rollers.
