    Bent shift fork, how hard to replace?

    I'm not terribly happy right now. I had my bike in neutral, clutch out, and my girl climbed up to mount the bike. Somehow instead of stepping on the passenger peg, she stepped on the shift lever...
    I had the front brakes held down, and the bike didn't pop right into gear. The shift fork kind of bounced off the drum until it caught and the bike stalled. Now it takes a little more effort to shift into first than it used to, and the other day the bike popped out of second gear into neutral under hard acceleration for the first time. I'm hoping it was just because I hadn't shifted into second hard enough, but I'm fearing the worst.

    How hard is it to replace a bent shift fork? Do you need to split the cases or can you get at them with the engine still in the bike?

    Guess i had the same problem especially while on track. If i dropped the gears too fast, it will give false neutral. Think the only way is to replace it.
    Its not how fast ur bike goes.Its how fast u brake

    Not awful but big enough job.You can get at them by removing the oil pan and clutch assy.The manual makes it look easy,it isn't unless you've been there before.But at least the engine stays together and in the frame.
