Don't know my bikes but I do know cars. Just bought a 98 vtr and itwould slip out of second. Too it to albins Honda i showed up while it was apart and could see nothing wrong with 2nd gear. mechanic agreed but said fork should be replaced anyways just in case its bent a little. (said problem was missing washers someone had it apart before) then he got it back together and says it still slipps so it's got a be the drum? What is he talking about how much should parts cost? He's saying job is now $1300 I'm thinking I could but a new engine and tranny for that, sound fishy to any1 or am I just crazy?
Again not a motorcycle mechanic but I do all the work on my cars so I do understand mechanics just haven't got into bikes. Next time I'm tackeling the job myself.
