    Wasn't running? How did it break?

    You don't HAVE to take the tranny off the bike to fix it, but it would be easier. You will have to pull the tranny apart so that you can replace ALL the broken stuff and clean out the bottom of the case carefully to make sure there are no little hard bits in there. One chunk of hard stuff from what broke could seriously tear up the bulk of the tranny if it got into the right (wrong?) place.

    won't swear by this, but I believe the top will come off the transmission and allow access to shift drum and shaft without removing trans from bike. Don't have a manual with me and my memory fades.

    I've done quite a few of these and have never considered removing the case from the bike to do it. You will have to remove the inner and outer primary plus the complete gear set. There are a few special tools that are needed.
