FZR600 Gearbox

Things never go as planned. I pulled the motor Saturday in an effort to put in the race prepped gear set and things quickly went pear shaped. I thought I'd be able to simply split the case, leave the crank, pistons, head, timing chain, etc. in tact, and swap out the gear stacks. How wrong I was. To split the case you have to get to two bolts located between pistons 2 and 3, which means everything had to come apart. Shit engineering from a service standpoint, but I'm sure it's cheap to put it together at the factory which is why it's done. The fact that this will be a wicked machine when it's finished is keeping me going.
