I have a question about my old-timer XR...I was noticing some slipping in several gears a few weeks back and changed the clutch. This helped the problem immensely, but second gear is still skipping under heavy load. It feels like the transmission just spins freely for a split second before re-engaging... Have I damaged some gears in the transmission? I can't get it to skip in any other gear--regardless of how hard I accelerate.
Do I need to split the case to repair? If so, what gaskets/consumable items will I need to complete the job?

I am experencing the same thing with my 94'. I have not changed the clutch yet but it was in the planning. I wonder if it is a 94' thing? I had the output shaft replaced 3 years ago and the trans gears looked like new then. As for gaskets, well a full engine gasket set and rings. If it has some miles on it, like mine did, that would be the time for a rebuild since the engine will have to be completly dissesembled to split the case to get to the trans. I ended up with a new piston, cam and rockers, valve guides and valves. The cam chain and sprockets were fine and the dealer said they did not need replacing.

This subject has come up before... MY '95 650L had the same problem after much thrashing and racing.

Bad news though: It's not your clutch..
