    There are two opinions of the GS. There are those who have ridden one who think its fantastic and there are those who haven't who know its crap.

    That looks very good, but how much did it cost you and how long to do.

    You remove the grease nipples and fit the grubb screws provided.
    The cost was $488 including return post. so bit pricey with the strong $. compairable with a new one. after speaking to Jim cray and finding the last 3 he supplied failed after a short time i decided to get this done. My shaft got caught up in the thanksgiving holiday, so was delayed by a few weeks. Fom what i hear from others he is usually quite good with his times

    If you use a short nipple, you can leave the gearbox end in situ.
    The bottom end you have to plug.

    I'll look forward to seeing pictures, and hearing your thoughts on the gearbox

    Sympathy to you - all that hassle for so little return.
