Well I went into my dealer today to talk to them about the shifter and see what they could do. They said they would get ahold of Yamaha and see what they say and will do. I am taking both in at the begining of next week. I will let you all know what happens and what yamaha says as soon as I hear from my dealer. Cross your fingers...o yea the dealer believes it is just the shifter drum also so it should not be a big deal! Better than the tranny going or carb boots blowing off I guess... :re Rather have a sticking shifter then a weak a arm so I am not upset at all.
