    Still 2 feet of snow on the ground here in the north, and -17C this morning, it will be May before we get bikes out. We also have to get through the "thaw". where I have to travel 1k of dirt road and ooze for 3 weeks, so the bikes don't come out till thats also dried up.

    Unfortunately she has to come apart again. no 2nd gear.

    It was winter with 4ft of snow and -20 when I started this project. it ran in the shop and went through the gears ok prior to the tear down...but as soon as I got her on the road under load in July it was wratcheting in 2nd. so..... engine to come out and all be stripped. fortunately I have 2 transmissions spare here.

    the worst part is, you can get the 200lb + engine out of a rolling chassis vf1000R via a controlled fall of sorts, but not so easy getting it back in. its easier to put the frame around the engine which means stripping it to every last nut and bolt (or almost). Grrrr

    Snit happens. I hate to go back and redo stuff but heck You do not have that much of a riding season. Best to leave tear down until is minus 20 again... I figure you have tons of bikes to ride. ;-)
