"If you delay the repair, you'll have to replace more than the fork. The shift drum and sprockets will suffer damage in time. My problems developed over 20k km (~12500miles) from the first symptoms."

Thanks for the clue, Switch -- I just shot Anton an email this afternoon asking that same question -- whether it would cause greater damage if I was careful about avoiding situations that cause the skip.

Not to hijack the thread, but how hard is it to tear everything off to where you can pull the transmission? I do most of my own work, but that looks like it may be a bit more involved than what I usually undertake. If it's all logical piece-by-piece, I'm thinking I might be able to handle it. Lay everything out on a big board, in order as it is taken off . . .
Let me know what you think!
