Can I install new gears?
Everyone has to start somewhere, but this typically isn't a project for a beginner. Many people choose to pay to have this done, even when they do most of their own work. Gears have to be setup correctly, and it does take some special tools to do so. There are also several bearings that you need a press for removal/installation. Now I'm not saying these can't be done in the driveway, because it can be done at home. If you are thinking about re-gearing, best bet is to do a bunch of reading and decide if setting up gears is something you want to attempt or not. This post will help explain some of the basics and get you started.
