If it were me, I KNOW what I'd do - I'd buy the bike back, then buy another nice, unscuffed Gen 1 bike with a known second gear problem for cheap, and put the motor with the good second gear in it - then sell parts on EBay or wherever and have a nice holiday with the money left over!

BTW, here's a link to a site with a copy of the MCN review of the Motion Pro Fork-Tru fork alignment tool. This thread is going to make me spend money!
