I'm walking through my transmission fix and any hands on insight would be greatly appreciated. You may remember a post (https://www.v11lemans.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=20313). I broke the forward selector (aka. movable hose) on the lower secondary shaft and long story short, I need to do the recall service myself. I have the replacement parts in hand. So far, my best plan of attack is outlined in this thread but I don't think I have to do a complete tear down and rebuild. https://www.v11lemans.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=20021 - Firstly, can these parts be replaced without the "special tools" specified in the workshop manual? I am very handy but do not own any of these and I have never had a transmission on my workbench. - Also, can this be done without separating the tranny from the engine? Meaning, go in after removing the swingarm and leave the engine and all it's wiring intact. Also, can I leave the transmission case connected to the engine and pull off the gearbox backplate with the gear stacks staying connected? That idea may be laughable but I'm learning as I go here. So the overall process would be: Remove swingarm, Unbolt gearbox backplate(s) and remove it with gear stacks / shafts still connected. With the output side down and the shafts pointing up, unstack parts from the shafts in question and reassemble in reverse order with replacement parts. Reinsert it as one assembled part when bolting on the backplate. This is doable, right? I see you shaking your head...
