Still lots to do, but I'm getting there. :thumbup

I have a few questions...

I have the famous 2nd gear problem... I also have a spare 04 engine and a spare 99 engine (both gearboxes are fine). Which should I use? Can I fit the 04 box easilyenough?

What front end is best to fit onto the R6? I want USD's! R6-R? RR? R1? B1H?

Comments welcomed...

Took both my 02 R6 and the 04 R6 to my mates garage ready for the change. Both bikes were complete and ridable.

The 02 R6:





The 02 R6 and the donor 04 R6:



The 04 engine out:



Getting ready to remove the 04 gearbox:



The 02 engine stripped:



The problem:



Had a few snags but to strip both bikes, drop both engines, and remove both gearboxes in an evening is pretty impressive, I think!

The problem!



No gearbox in the 04 engine...



Engine going back in...



Nearly done...



Testing everything out...



All done. ;)

...and then to test the gearbox out I went through the box on the paddock stand (the clocks showed 196mph bouncing off the limiter in 6th).

Here's a video...
