Hey guys, I recently had my girlfriend's Suzuki 250 Bandit serviced, during which the mechanics discovered that the countershaft spline was dangerously worn and recommended it not be ridden. When i asked how much it would cost to replace, they told me that the parts themselves were not dear, but that to replace they would need to open the engine etc and the labour alone would be upwards of $1000. Does this sound correct? Is there any cheaper way to do this? My girlfriend is really upset as she loves her little bandit immensely. Any help would be much appreciated.
