A buddy brought me his old bike as he got it back from a local dealer.. in a box. They split the case, took everything apart and told him they wanted $6k to put it back together. He bought a 09 and tossed the 06 in the garage. I figured it would be a good winter project to put it back together, so after hours of cleaning parts I'm almost ready. I've dry fit the transmission, and got it shifting, but since I didn't take it apart, and they just tossed everything into a box I'm running into questions; question that I hope you folks can help me with. 1) Does anybody know what bolts (16*) hold the shift guide? The guide is the part that holds the segment against the shift cam. When I dry fit it I used two chrome bolts (5/8" long, 10mm head) I found in the box. * referring to the TT store OEM schematic to help make myself clear. 2) I believe I put the transmission together correctly (they gave it back with a gear on the drive assembly backwards.. as far as I can tell). The transmission wouldn't turn freely (would bind at some point as it turned) before I put it together "correctly". Now it shifts properly using the shift lever, but is hard to shift by turning the cam with my fingers. The manual implies that it should shift cleanly by turning the cam, but I wasn't sure how cleanly? It feels partly like the forks bind a little (no oil on them after cleaning), and also dogs don't line up without help. I assume that when the cases are together the forks stay aligned better, and that operating the transmission was aligning the dogs - I'd prefer not to split the case after destroying the transmission due to an assumption. 3) Permatex anaerobic flange sealant ok when I put the case back together? 4) Anything else to consider in the transmission? So far it has been surprisingly simple, which makes me wonder if I'm missing something? I prefer to put things back together after I've taken them apart.. starting from a pile of parts is a shock to my normally anal attention to detail. I was thinking about documenting the whole project with a bunch of pictures and notes about what I learn. If that would be interesting to anybody let me know, and I'll make more of an effort to actually finish something. Thanks.
