How difficult is it to change out the fifth gear on my WR426? The local shop wants $1000 to do it and that's just not worth it to me. Also does anyone have any photos of what to expect once I get in there and what else I should think of replacing?

The shift fork and third gear should looked at carefully and replaced

Here's what you'll end up with:
