It's fine - I don't think he really wanted to part with then anyway. He races and I have rebuilt his transmission 3 times this year. The last time I instructed him how to properly shift and he has not broke a transmission since, but he is running a 465 (big bore and stroker crank) with a stage 2 cam and a Keihin FCR carb. He knows he's over stressing things, but it's a cost of racing.A huge thank you for following up but I found a transmission set on EBay, the guy sold me the mainshaft with 2nd gear on it for $80. Honda still had 5 & 14 so I bought those new. Again I really really appreciate the help and follow up 👍👍 It's people like you that make a difference and I appreciate that !
Let me see if I can find them again - that was two months ago and I think I still have them, but I probably buried them under something else - I got several tubs full 400EX parts and have been moving them on Ebay and Facebook, but I have no record of selling the transmission gears.
Did u hear from himThey still belong to the guy In got them from - they are in a plastic bag with his name on it - I just have to find them again
That guy is coming in tomorrow to get some parts for an Arctic Cat that were on back order for about 3 months - I'm sure he will sell the one gear, I just ask him how much he wants for just the one gear and I got to ask him before I tell him how much the AC parts cost.
I'll get back to you by email tomorrow afternoon
I was just checking these forums because I have run into the same issue of needing the second gear 16t and cannot find one anywhere online do you know if your friend still has those gears available ?
