Default Changing the shift drum

Does the engine have to be removed in order to remove the clutch and change the shift drum

Wink drum-ectomy

no;
you must remove the complete clutch.....careful, the wiring harness will try to tear the gasket
then sprocket cover, sprocket, chain and water pump
do not remove it with the transmission in neutral

a 2nd pair of hands will make it faster, depending how familiar you are with transmissions

And do not forget to remove the Neutral Indicator switch first also ?

dont forget, that the chain will prevent the
transmission to slide out.

my solution is to support the bike, remove the
swing arm rod, push and pull the swing arm
a bit to the back, then the transmission goes
out smooth.

alternative method --- cut the chain

happy to know, if anyone knows a more
elegant way to do it.

If you're changing the drum to get GP shift it's alot easier and less hassle to modify the shift arm and rotate it. What I did on my Tambo.

Well the right one's still working isn't it? When you lose it I'll change it.
