Well you need the exploded parts diagram for the gearbox, I wouldn’t trust anyone to describe what goes where without a picture. Ask the shop to copy you one when you order your gear. If it were a kawi you could see it on their site cw part no.s, but Yam US don’t seem to provide the same service.

I believe that partsfish.com will have what your looking for. Not sure about the address but you should be able to do a search. They have the microfish(sp) available on the web.

Check the wear patterns on either side of the gear-there is a washer between the gear and case bearing, it probalby has made a witness mark on the side of the gear. I believe you will find that the beveled edge of the gear goes towards the case bearing to allow oil to better enter the bearing. The gear WILL work in either position, it does not slide on the shaft, but that blind bearing needs all the lube it can get-I have replaced several over the years. IRONDOG
