Transmission problems are extremely rare on these bikes. There have been only a couple that have "fragged", and one of those was at well over 200,000 miles.
Other than leaking seals, which are a bit more common, they are quite reliable.
Get it fixed now, before something breaks and causes you to spend MUCH more money.
There are a couple on eBay usually, mostly by the seller "Deep Six Auctions", but he is normally higher than others who may have them.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.

No bike now, but maybe in the future.
