Lots of ugly crap going on right now. My wife's truck is acting up, my 'backup' car was stolen, and last week my '88 RS suddenly decided 2nd gear was fine for everything. I emailed Anton, and he said it's probably 'just' the shift pawl spring.
I had loaned the RS to a friend (for the last six months or so) because he was having issues with his bike. The very day after his bike got back on the road, the RS transmission stuck in 2nd.
However.... after work today I popped over to Dan's house (the guy I loaned the scooter to) and we pulled the transmission to send off to Anton. It took less than an hour. You gotta' love that.
