I am having more trouble with yamaha tranys this year than I have had in my whole life, 2R6 motors and now my VMAX. Is any one familiar with the shifter drum and shift pins on the Yamaha VMAX transmission. I have just lost the 3rd gear shift pin for the third time in 4 years, the same thing happened every time. The tab that holds the pin is bent and the hole the pin sits in is oval ( it should be round), and the pin is gone... I hope it is stuck in the oil pump screen. I didn't miss a shift and I don't thrash the bike I can't see a reason for this. The repair job is easy but ridding back from Whistler in 3rd aint no fun, I need help.
