I'm about to do the clutch spring upgrade to a meanie spring for my '96 classic and was thinking that while I'm in that side of the engine I might do the oil pump gear as well I'm not sure if it was done by the PO or not. I called my local Kawi dealer and they quoted me $83.00 cdn just for the gear plus tax seems kinda high to me what have you guys been paying? I would have thought that because it was a defective engineering point Kawi would be selling them at close to cost :roll:

oil pump gear

How difficult is it to do it? Do you have to pull the engine and split the case or can you pull it out and put in a new gear when the clutch is out?

jog gear=JOG: Judges oil gear. An after market steel oil gear that replaces the POG without having to remove the engine or split the cases. Invented and sold by Judge on the vroc forum

Bert, my97 oil gear went south and I have to get another one. I went with the Judge's after reading all the GOOD about it and I have a mechanic I rate as the best and only one that will touch my bike (Mark Williams, MW Bikes, Humble Tx) and while it cost alittle, it was worth it. Call the Judge and talk to him for a few minutes and you'll see what I mean. Great guy.

good luck

Bill
