Bugs in my box
More time has passed and I continue to worry about my transmission.
"Summing up: ....theoretically it is possible for a transmission built from 1984, up until transmission serial number 240765, to not have the circlip (and the shaft has or has not a groove for that circlip). "
1984: Z-084339 -> Z-104600
My transmission is number Z-094668, smack dab in the middle of the '84 run yet my bike was built in September '83 ('84 model year though). My box seems to produce a fair amount of fuzz between oil changes as well as the occasional tiny splinter (yikes!). It has ~17k miles on it now and sat for a couple of decades. How worried should I be? I'd prefer not to throw real money at fake problems, but if this is something that I SHOULD deal with NOW, I'll do it. What would the consesus be on a "normal" amount of metal fuzz on the drain plug? Should the little magnet still be visible or is a larger mound of metal goo acceptable?
