<<Except a lot of time!

Your own time is what you make of it. Two years ago , my transmision went on 
my YZF, 2nd gear had started slipping again for teh 2nd time since i had the 
bike. I found a complete bike on ebay that wasn't crashed, had low mileage 
(Like under a few thousand.) and was disassembled by the previous owner 
because he intneded to chrom,e everything then lost interest years ago, and 
best of all it was less then 50 miles from me. I bought it for $500, paid 
anotehr $500 for the engine swap, and then sold everything including the 
fairings on ebay, and at the end of everything the entire experience cost me 
$50. Well worth my "Time"  now at 67K miles my YZF is practically new again, 
and I have my old motor sitting there in my shed. If I ever need it, I can 
tear it down and replace 2nd gear.
