Hate it when the bike is out of commission! Two years ago I actually broke the star cam off the shift drum of my FJR. No clue how that happens; bad weld, who knows? I ended up pulling the motor and splitting the case to get to the part, and discovered other transmission woes, including well-worn dogs on 4th gear, and a very worn shift fork. I had the good fortune to get free parts from another member of the FJR forum, whose engine spun a bearing. (Only known FJR bearing failure, and my issue is the only known broken shift drum.) Anyway, replaced the whole transmission with the parts from that other engine. Bike was down 117 days, most of which was spent deciding whether to tear down and repair, or just replace the engine, as another forum member had a good engine with a bad set of valves on it. Since I had access to free parts I ended up with the repair. I think I'll post a thread about it!
