Re: Online how to guide on swapping gears?

Swapping gears is not something you want to attempt from an online guide. There are specialized tools involved and it is very time consuming and there are critical measurements to make adjustments to. For starters you will need press with adapters, dial gauge, etc.. You would be more cost effective taking it to someone with experience in the subject and paying them to do it.

Well in that case just google gear swaps and read up on it. I am sure there are tons of material on it.
