    Gearbox rebuild DIY?

    Post by curl666 on Fri Nov 06, 2015 7:51 pm

    I've never played much with the internals of a motorbike engine/gearbox, but I've stripped and rebuilt car engines.

    I've seen a cheap enduro I was considering buying, I've got my WRF up for sale but looking for a cheap bike so Im not without. On the advert, it says the bike keeps popping out of 5th gear.

    Whats involved with stripping a motorbike gearbox? Expensive repair/parts?

    A gear is about £ 60 you may need 2 and a full gasket set
    if I was doing it I would put a new piston ans cam chain in aswell so you know its good for a few hrs riding
