I just picked up a 2004 999 with a bad gearbox. Does anyone know if the trans from a 916 is the same? I have a 916 parts engine I could dismantle but I thought I would ask before tearing into it. I've tried searching this but can't find anything conclusive. Some eBay sellers claim they are the same.
Thanks!

The 916 has a standard ratio gearbox, the 999 has a close ratio transmission.
The 916 has a 2.00 primary ratio, the 999 has a 1.84 ratio.

Following Strega, the 916 gear box will work in the 999. You will notice a difference in the taller gears.

Cool - just the info I was looking for - thanks! I'll be on the hunt for a stock 999 box.

the 999 also has the big nut on the output shaft to retain the sprocket, whereas the 916 et al have the plate.
