When I recently stumbled upon an 850 in boxes for $400 I figured I couldn’t pass it up. I’ve been looking for a project for this winter. The guy I bought it off of said that the transmission wasn’t shifting very well and it wouldn’t shift into third. That being said I’ve never torn into a gearbox before but it sounds fun. The plan is to build it back into what it was before the guy took it apart in 2012. Currently have an 1150gs as the touring bike and a klx250 as a dirt bike. So looking for something to get around town and short jaunts. Maybe it will go to a scrambler but I just want to get it fixed up first. When I brought it home Digging it out and bringing it home was quite an experience! Wish me luck! Hoping this will serve as a way for me to keep track of what’s going on and be a good resource for people.
