I have a 2001 Cosmo Stinger with 600mi on it. The bike was left outside over the winter and when I went to drain the gearbox water and what was now a white paste came out. I put new oil in it after I made sure all that stuff had drained out. The bike starts fine and idles well, however after I got it to run for a while and I came to a stop, it stalled out. Starting it again would result in it sounding and acting like it was still in second gear (slow start and sound). I know the gearbox has some kind of rubber element or band in it that assists the gear change, but I have no idea where to get it. I also need to find a gearbox cover gasket if I am going to pull this thing apart which I also have had no luck finding.
Any help would be great.
