    yep... if you have to split the cases its either time to find a new bike or time to get the 600cc kit going

    Yes, you have to split the case to get to the trans.

    You can totally strip down that side before case splitting and get to 80 percent of the transmission - then you can decide if you wan to split the case. Then you could get at the drum as well, no splitting. Check drum pin length, and back of detent plate for wear, new clips - use 2 if you can - should be the new blue ti.

    ? I don't understand how you can get to 80% on the tranny? What I am seeing is the primary cover, then the case. No in between. Am I missing something?

    You have to go in the other side, and remove everything, besides glue and a few bolts 2 pressed in bearings and a starter are also holding it together. Because of that gears 3 and 5 are not really accessible - forgot why, but everything else is. That means you could replace drum, most of the bearings and gears, button back up and go - in theory. I really should talk to TP about this some more.

    You'll need a press to properly split the case in the end - see manual.

    Yeah, wish I never sold my press

    Looks like I only have to press the crank out to be able to bore. Don't think I have to remove bearings. I may remove the tranny as well.

    Can anyone confirm if the XB trans is any different than the Blast trans? Could I use the XB trans? Or any other trans that fit into the Blast? Any suggestions on changing gearing, etc.?

    If you go to taller gears, you're lessening your torque output at the wheel.

    Unless you have cash burning a hole in your pocket, I'd keep the Blast trans and maybe change to a gear-drive output where you can adjust ratio easier.
