Anyone know where to get some tranny work done, the 01 i just picked up has what i think are second gear issues. The original owner had several wrecks but the last one he went off the road and came back on under power the bike now goes from first to third with some grinding. I have not got it pulled apart yet but im thinking second gear or shifter fork. Any help would be great.

Without checking the gear engagement pattern, I'd say on the surface either a bent shift fork or worn dogs on the gear(s).
Although I'm leaning towards the bent shift fork.
Either way, it's case splitting time.
Sorry to hear about that.

where are you located, i could do the work for you but if you are not close then any deal i could give you would be ate up by shipping, pm me if interested. oh and i am a certified honda tech so the work will be top notch, not that being honda tech means anything but none the less the work will be excellent. things to remember on a job like this is to replace the water and oil pump while apart and before dissassembly check compression etc. might be a good time to go to a larger over size on your pistons or even some performance parts ie. higher comp pistons, cams, etc. and i know the cyl are nickasil there are options out there.

Has anyone ever used Fast By Gast?
Fast By Gast is a household name in the drag-race world. I had my 919 trans freshened up (magnafluxed, cleaned, measured, back-cut, cleaned again, polished) by M/T Performance in Ashland City, TN. Great guys, quick turn around, and are very very familiar with individual bike transmissions. not to mention: great price.

I believe he meant OP, motors are cheap as in if the trans is bad, used motors are available.

Roger D. was telling me that I should NEVER (in bold letters) undercut stock gears, just use the nova....guess he had issues in his high HP engines and undercutting.
