          Not a great deal... my issue was the bad bearing underneath the 5th gear on the output shaft. The tranny functioned OK, but that bearing wouldn't have lasted much longer.

          My exhaust is pretty loud, and I didn't notice the old bearing starting to fail. I caught the noise when I pulled in the drive and cut the kill switch and coasted to a stop in front of the garage door. I got it on the lift and in neutral you could definitely tell.

          That bearing is a big dude, too.

            Nice work D,I'm a cheap bastid and prolly would'a just done that bearing.
            The bike should ride like new now for a long time.
