    Looks like a nice clean R3 for sale on the local CL. Owner states it has tranny issues so it may be an opportunity for someone to buy at a reasonable price and fix yourself.

    Thanks to WildBill for the heads up so it could be posted here.

    Sounds like a detent spring to me. I would go for it if I were in the area.

    Hate to see any of the 07s with this problem. Same model/year/color as the one I gave my son. It has about 33k on it though as I recall so hopefully he'll never experience any issues. This one even has the original bags and appears to be a real cherry

    What a PITA to fix though so he probably won't get anywhere near his asking price, that is unless Bob decides he needs a summer project.

    VERY VERY good deal. If it was close to me, I'd have it in a heart beat.

    Yep definetly worth it for parts. Maybe even updating or just fixing the motor. Myself I do not think its the detent. Only 10,000 miles on her though. Hmm and I have a fully updated 06 engine on a pallet in the basement. To bad its so far away. Lord I could hide it down at the barn with the 05 for a while or long enough for the wifey to think its one of my other ones :)

    My 05 with 63,000 miles has some strange shifting thing going on, but never popping out of gear. Just sometimes have to lift it twice to get it to catch, and shift. I suspect that other spring that's in there has one side broke off. I have a few of them, and detent springs, just ain't interested in tearing the front off, "yet". The old, "if it works, don't fix it" ethic.

    So you don't have to do a complete engine tear down to replace the detent spring?

    warp9.9, what do you think the issue might be? It's been so long since I used to follow the "upgrade" repairs that I can't recall what the specific issues were. I recall an output shaft bearing problem that required a tear down and a paint can rattle along with some trannie failures. I thought the latter were mostly detent.
