I thought most modern sport bikes didn't need the engine torn apart to get the gears out.

Every bike engine I've ever seen needs the cases split in order to get the gear shafts out so the gears can be changed on the shafts. Engine typically needs to come out of the frame, but the top end can be left on the top case half ... so not a "complete" tear down but major tear down IMO.

They should be cassette type transmissions.

If it's designed like that, then certainly it would help reduce the complexity of the task.

Yeah it splits In two so the transmission is seprate. Then when you get into the top end of the motor your taking off heads, cams/pistons, all the way down to the gears, you don't have to drop the oil. Think God! I can do it but I'm not sure if I'm keeping the bike and since I'm doing most of the engine parts I might as well upgrade to race cams , heads, new parts off the RR and put it into Race bike. Keep it, if I do sell it I'll sell it for 17,000 it won't be ZX10R I'll end up converting into RR
