Got a kinda stupid, quick question. How many times do you think you can grind your gears in the MTX before you start having problems in the shifting and tranny? Not that I grind my gears often, but I have grinded them a couple times, usually 2nd gear. It probably depends on the force and how long the grind last. What do you think?

Wow, not sure if there is a limit to say, ok, well, you've grinded 5 times, any more and the tranny will stop working. I think that may depend on the level of grindage each time and how much wear actually happens.

Also, you may want to resize the image in your signature, it is quite large.

Your question is kinda along the lines of:

"How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie pop?"

There are so many factors that affect when you might start to see issues, that it's almost impossible to make an accurate guess. Obvisouly it's not good to grind gears at all if possible. Doing it a few times while learning the patterns of the gear box and how the clutch engages should not cause any issues.
