R6 gearboxes

Discussion in 'Bling and Appearance' at netrider.net.au started by Sratto, Dec 20, 2007.

  1. Does anyone know if an 05 gearbox will go with a 99 engine. If you say yes it can where did you get your information from.

  2. Secondhand motorcycle motors are usually sold complete with gearboxes. I'd replace the whole thing.
  3. The gearbox and engine on almost all bikes (excluding most bmw's, harleys etc) are integral. The gearbox and engine are highly integrated into each other to the extent that they even share the same oil. Possibly some individual parts (gears and stuff) may be interchangable between 99 and 05 r6's, but given the pace of japanese engine development, i would doubt it. By 05 the r6 probably had a cassette type gearbox (easily removable in the heat of racing) whereas the 99 model doesn't to the best of my knowledge.
