    My thinking also. Stick a magnet to the drum.

    Interesting thread. I also have not seen a aluminum SCD, never and I've had my fair share of gearboxes in pieces.

    I think I'll start using the clutch when changing gears.

    I don't know how using the clutch or not would affect any wear on the drum?

    hmmm, only thing I had to replace on my '03 XB9S were the shift forks. Everything else was normal...she had over 70k on the clock!

    What was the main reason you needed to change the forks? Just curious.
