Past the point of no return

Got tired of the old Z jumping out of 2nd gear. Started the bike tear down yesterday, pulled the motor and split the case today.

My advice is to let a pro examine the gears and forks. Your eye will not detect the .003" of missing metal that can make a difference. Been there done that.

Simple fail safe rule . Replace shift drum ( $125 ) all three shift forks ( about 60 each )
Inspect dogs/dog holes and damage or rounding send off to A.P.E to have cut/repaired
$375 usually . For slick shifting on new trans install factory pro shift kit , and rebuild you shift linkage .

Thanks. Replaced the shift drum that was definitely worn several months ago, but took a chance with the gears as I didn't want to split the case back then. Now, I'm replacing 2nd and 6th (they mesh together - or don't sometimes) and the related shift fork even though it mics to factory specs. Also replacing the springs on the shift lever and the shift drum positioning device. I'll have to look into the factory pro shift kit. I did once see a roller bearing shift drum positioning lever somewhere.

The valve clearances checked out OK though, so I won't have to tear into that for now. It's alot easier with the motor off the bike though.
