update on 5th gear set, i just looked at a 2007 used transmission with 8,000 miles and guess what the 5th gear set is just starting to pit, looks like i going with two new 5th gears and put em to my existing transmission. i can't find a used one of any year with low mile that's not pitting, i might just have my new gears shot peened so the'll last. i can't believe yamaha hasn't addressed this problem. fair warning any 650 owners will eventually have to replace them from what i'm seeing there all defective
dumb bikers don't get to be old bikers
