We have probably all been where I am now, at one time or another. I opened my primary drive to replace the crank seal and clutch center. While waiting for parts to arrive I dug into the gearbox to adjust the ratchet spring and to shim out the kickstart shaft in an attempt at obtaining smoother shifts. My parts came but by then I saw how badly worn the kickstart pawl had become. New pawl, mainshaft bearing (timing side), and gaskets now enroute. While waiting for those bits I would like to inspect the cam plate and shift forks to see if something is causing a notchy shift into first from neutral. My question is, can the all the gears and both shafts be removed from the shell without removing the drive sprocket and sleeve gear? I would remove the clutch center nut and circlip. Will the mainshaft slide out from the sleeve gear without dropping anything out? I realize if the layshaft bearing comes out of the drive side I will have to do a further teardown to loctite it back in. I really don't want to remove the primary inner case just to see if there is a burr on the cam plate. In fact, delving further into the tranny may necessitate another parts order which will delay getting back on the road.
