    Ummm...... you did check the chain tension, I hope.  Tigers like a fairly loose chain, about 45mm in the centre IIRC.  A tight chain (even what's specified in the handbook) can cause all sorts of probs.

    Yeah the tigers chain is left to flap about.

    If it was chain it wouldn't stop me shifting gear. And being honest I don't baby it.

    I think I've gotten it nearly ready to drop out when I can get myself a helper. It's definitely internal, removing the chain and spinning the output shaft you can hear the clack and feel resistance in neutral.

    New engine 625 posted, not too bad.

    I'll split the cases and post the gore when I get the old one out, likely rebuild it then put it back in. Feels like the heart of the bike, sad as that is  :001:

    Detent spring? - at least I think that's what its called.
    Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

    Don't suppose anyone has page 9.4 of the service manual, I've lost mine - it's got half the removal procedure on.

    I'm pretty sure I can wing it but still.

    Does anyone know if the head/ barrels need to be removed to split the cases?

    Service manual does not advise this but I'm dubious as to whether that is right.
