Re: 2nd gear problems
BR is a friggin motor-bike encyclopedia! I would say you can get away with replacing just the one bad gear, I have seen many people do it. I would definitely have a shop take a look at the rest of the gears though, just to be sure they aren't close to going out as well (will end up saving the bike from getting torn down again later). I am sure you have some gaskets to replace if you crack the case, not sure what other high-wear items you might want to tackle while it is apart. Bladeracer would certainly know, I am surprised he hasn't paid a visit to this thread yet....
