89 YZ 6th gear

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine has a 89 YZ 125 and has a shattered 6th gear,

Before I buy a trans I was wondering if the 89 YZ transmissions have problems of shattering gears?

thanks

Most of the Yamaha gear boxes over the years have been pretty much bullet proof. Every once in a while a batch of gears will get by QA and cause a few problems.

But, as previously stated, the last gear held up for over 20 years. No reason to think that you won't get 10-20 out of the replacement (if you find new) or a few seasons out of a used one.
