Oh that's good to hear that it isn't possible to loose one of the balls in the trans, but to be sure today I took a small extendable magnets and after pulling out the first push rod, slide it down the passage and pulled out the center ball ( Which looked to be in good shape). Then I did it again and was able to pull the second shaft till I could see it end. I'm just going to assume that the final ball is in place as I couldn't pull the second shaft out. So it seems that I have all the components of the push rod assembly. However I do have a few other question: 1) Can you push the push rod assembly in by hand and disengage the clutch? If so about how much resistance is there? 2) Is there any way that the clutch could be jammed on/by something binding up? 3) If I wined the adjuster screw for the worm gear all the way in to it absolute farthest in position, pulled the very hard clutch lever and though I can see the worm ratcheting outwards, the clutch doesn't disengage ( Confirmed by having it in gear and another person try to turn the rear wheel), does that condem the worm gear assembly? Or is it time for the RH case to come off? Like I said before, I had the bike running about a day again and the clutch was worked absolutely fine. The only work I did was installing a permanent magnet system in the bike. I have never take the RH case cover. Again thank for your time, any help is greatly appreciated.
