C109R gearbox troubles

Hi, new on this site so if there is a thresd relating to this, your help and direction would be appreciated.

I own a 2008 C109 Boulevard, and it has blown out the gearbox twice now, once @80,000km and last week @ 162,000km. Ouch, $8000 a time to repair. So my darling is about to sit in garage while I purchase another C109 (yes, thats right, another) 2099 model with only 34,000km on the clock.

is this a fault in the gearbox, and how do I rectify it.

As I live in New Zealand, there are limited parts available and at serious cost. Is there a reliable parts dealer elsewhere in the world where I can get parts from at a good price.

I just downloaded the service manual, and even though I am not at all mechanical, am going to strip gearbox and engine from old bike, and have a go at repairing it..

any help appreciated

"MOTORCYCLE LOST 2ND GEAR. WAS ON THE FREEWAY AND ALMOST GOT RAN OVER DUE TO THE ISSUE. AFTER DOING FURTHER RESEARCH I FOUND THAT MANY OTHER OWNERS OF THE SAME BIKE ARE HAVING THE SAME ISSUES. AFTER TALKING TO SUZUKI CORPORATE THEY STATED THAT THEY HAVE HAD MANY CALLS ON THE ISSUE AND THAT THEY UPDATED THE PART NUMBER. WHEN I GOOGLE SEARCHED THE ISSUE THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF OTHER OWNERS HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM. TO FIX THE ISSUE IS COSTING THE OWNER 2000 TO 3000 TO REPAIR. THIS IS HAPPENING ANYWHERE FROM 8000 MILES AND UP. THERE EVEN APPEARS TO BE COURT CASES WHERE SUZUKI SETTLED."

Appears to be a problem with the shift fork.

I knew I'd seen something on this before, found this on a Boulevard specific forum, hope it helps
