Anyone know how hard it is to pull a 96 zx6r F tranny? If I find that my front sprocket is fine, my 2nd output gear may have gone bad and I found one online. It's not huge issue right now, but I would like it to be smoother. Clutch is not the issue, the slippage was fixed after a new cable install.

I would use the same process I use when doing any tear down.
require:
tools assorted
camera
metric fuckton of baggies
at least two sharpies
tape

everything that comes off take a pic pointing to each bolt removed and put it in a labled bag. label that bag AND tape it to the part.

If you get frustrated relax, smoke a ... cigarette... or something, post the pics of where you got to and what the issue is... At some point some bright star of the internet will tell you what you did wrong.

Yeah I always keep everything orderly, and I now have a nice torque wrench so that's not an issue. I'm just wondering if I have to pull the motor or not, cuz that would suck

Any transmission work on a motorcycle is a major undertaking. Unless is has a cassette style transmission (yours doesn't) you will need to remove the engine and split the crankcase. Study the service manual very closely. It is very easy to reassemble them incorrectly. Test it as much as you can on the bench before putting it back in the bike. Its a lot of work to get it back in and find out it doesn't shift correctly.

Maybe. I use baggies and sharpies and blue tape for everything. It may take a little extra time, but it takes less than looking for whatever the fuck bolt it is you piled with a bunch of others, and then trying to decide which hole it goes in. My clutch cover bolts I have labeled numerically starting at 12:00 so I can just look at the head and count the holes until I find the right one.

I'm not afraid to do that, but I just need the time to do it I guess. I have enough time during summer maybe before I leave, otherwise I'll wait till I have more time lol.
