She’s back! All gears present and correct. Had my first run yesterday after fitting exhausts, tank, seat and side panels setting clutch and filling and priming with fresh oil. I must say I have a much better appreciation for the mechanics of the gearbox. I think I will be tentative changing to 5th gear for some time to come until confidence returns. I replaced gear 2/3, gear 5 and centre shifter fork that were all damaged due to gear not engaging properly as well as all circlips. Short run yesterday as near side mirror came loose and idle was too high after checking bench sync on carbs. Thanks to all for your input. 😊😊😊

By the way I used the 4”x 2” method of engine removal and refitting, worked a treat.

Good to read its sorted in what to me looks like a relatively short time in my time warp world.
Must be a great feeling to have sorted it - always good to read a positive final outcome.

In the unlikely event that it happens again, I will be running with a 4 speed Ted. 😂😂😂

Looking forward to hearing of your run when health and weather prevail.😉

Can't see you would be happy with a gear missing for more than a nano second.

I'm driving Wendy mad when I start verbalizing thoughts I should keep inside - such as - "it might be safer to ride the bike with my stitches still in place as that would be stronger than after they have been just removed " Wendy's reply would not get through the censors.
 
When friends ask me how I am I say "still can't ride the bike yet" rather that say "I'm still sore with an angry looking scar with yellow bruising surrounding it."

I find it pleasing when I look at the 10 day weather report with 5 days of rain that somehow eases my frustration.

My usual answer to that question is still breathing

I like that one.
 I also like "Still waking up with a pulse" as it it's a question as well.
