Very nice bike.
I used to be in the Twin Cities area quite a few times, but I never saw any Adventure bikes on the streets and rarely seen motorbikes at all. I thought that MN is a totally adventure bike free place.

NSFW









Naked bike






She has 74,000 miles on her so I pulled the valve covers to check out the top end before my next trip only to find the cam chains to be a bit on the stretched side. I wanted to make it to 100,000 miles before a rebuild so I was only going to replace the cam chains then put it back together. Now I am thinking I will go further and do the rings and valves now. The main transmission shaft is showing excessive wear at the clutch basket which could explain the vibrations that I feel.

It is normal for the clutch basket to have play, it sits on roller bearings. I doubt it if the shaft that is warn at all. I replaced my countershaft at 65,000 as it was badly warn where the drive sprocket sits. Other that this, the gearbox was sweet. If you rebuild the motor, be sure to do all the updates inside to help with lubrication and oil pressure. Also check your base gasket faces for corrosion since your bike is older than 05.5 otherwise you'll be into another rebuild in no time. Mine is at 95,000 now....almost there! Problem is now, I have too many other cool bikes to ride like 690RR's that I hardly use the 950 now. You might want to check that steel band on your clutch basket too, in fact, I'd just chuck it and fit one of the later baskets, too much damage if that baby shits the bed! Check my thread, it's all in there.

Thanks, My flywheel & crank are keyed, I already did the spring and sending unit, I'm undecided on the newer balancer. I'll check for more items.

You cannot fit the new balancer shaft without changing the engine casing....so my guess is you do not want that expense?

Comparing the basket roller bearing at 20k miles, noticeable less play with the new one. I've not found the oil jet to be blocked when I've checked.....

Right, but that's not the shaft thats wearing, that was my point. And for what its worth, I've still got the original roller bearing in my motor at 95,000miles. Just saying, from experience.

I was surprised in the amount of play with the old bearing, and the new had noticeable lass lateral play. On the old bearing, the set of rollers closest to the booster looked more worn. The shaft was fine as was basket, were you running a larger clutch jet? Maybe I've been unlucky, it wasn't a cheap part, bearing shop didn't have in stock so I ordered from stealer.
