Yep, but I don't think you can find a new one for $1600. Even adding the $1200 in parts and machine work comes in less than new. But there is definitely too much neglect.

The reason was the top end wasn't getting much oil. When I started flushing the oil ports, this thick play dough like sludge started coming out. So I am positive this guy missed a few oil changes. I'll have to get a picture of the sludge noodles, haha.

Ok so I tried to install the wr gears in the yz. I ordered the whole gear set minus the shafts. I decided to go with the whole 1-5 trans swap because i didn't want any gaps in the ratios and it just didn't seem like it would fit together with miss matched gears. Anyway, I ran into several issues and abandoned this part of the build until the next time I pull the engine apart.

 

Here is the list of parts i ordered:

5TJ-17151-20-00                GEAR, 5TH PINION (25T)

2GC-17131-00-00              GEAR, 3RD PINION (16T)                              

5TJ-17141-20-00                GEAR, 4TH PINION (20T)

5TJ-17121-20-00                GEAR, 2ND PINION (15T)   this gear is the same on both bikes

5TJ-17211-20-00                GEAR, 1ST WHEEL (29T)

2GC-17251-00-00              GEAR, 5TH WHEEL (21T)

5TJ-17231-20-00                GEAR, 3RD WHEEL (21T)               

5TJ-17241-20-00                GEAR, 4TH WHEEL (21T)

5TJ-17221-20-00                GEAR, 2ND WHEEL (26T)

 

1. when completely assembled, the two sets didn't match up very well. I determined this was due to the bigger first gear. This will require a wr main axle shaft because the 1st pinion gear in built into the shaft.

 

2. so i proceeded with the yz 1st gear and the left shift fork won't fit into the 3rd pinion gear detent.

 

I don't want to run a hokey set up in a freshly built bike. So next tear down I will buy new shafts and shift forks and report back with the build. sorry if i left anyone in expecting more.

Thanks for getting that far. I Appreciate the progress report.

I knew the output shaft was needed for the other side of 1st gear. My plans were to get the entire set of gears and shafts and I was curious about the shift forks still matching up with the different cog set. When do you think you'll break it open again?

The '10-'13 forks have differing part numbers, from the later WR, but this user did not install them.

Maybe the end of this year, if nothing happens before then.

Thanks gray, I wish I'd have come across this before. My initial search turned up nothing. Guess I was using the wrong search words, haha. Thanks though.

Haha, and that's one of the first thread in the forum. I feel dumb. Thanks again.
