Re: INPUT SHAFT!!!

I didn't break mine, but I did swap mine out to a 26 spline before it could break on me. Still have my 10 spline at the house.

Re: INPUT SHAFT!!!

well I guess you didn't upgrade before or it could've been the motor and not the shaft.

Put a 26 spline in when upgrading everything else....and that's the reason lol.

It's not bad till you're snapping 26 splines like that...had a friend do it.

Re: INPUT SHAFT!!!

Not really. Once you have the trans out you take out a few bolts and the front cover comes right off. Then, swap shafts. The only hard part is finding the proper sized shim to get the free play in spec. I was lucky and grabbed the proper one first try.

Re: INPUT SHAFT!!!

I pulled my trans and dropped it and the new shaft off at a shop for an afternoon. He didn't have time to get to it so I ran by the next morning to pick it up. He said he had forgotten and pulled the cover, popped the old one out, set the new one in, shimmed it up right and I was out the door in 15 minutes.

The trick I kept forgetting was to stand the transmission on it's end when setting everything back together, I had the forks all screwed up doing it myself.
