Do you think my R transmission would be better for street use? Better ratios?

Yes, that's what I reckon. The tall first gear is a hassle and heavy on the clutch.. :-\

All aboard the part gathering train  ;D Make up your own part lists with the part manual. The majority of bearings are off the shelf so no need for OEM, especially wheel bearings. Take lots of pics as you disassemble, cable routing etc seems logical when taking apart but putting back to together the logic is suddenly gone (-P)

Top tip is to get some white, wide if you can get it, insulation tape. You can write on it with marker pen, make tags with it to mark up what wires/hoses go where and use it to close open holes that bolts like to jump into (airboxes, crankcases etc). The good thing is that you can see anything you have not removed as the white stands out.

Also found business card plastic cases very useful, put nuts/bolts and associate peripherals in them together with a business card noting what the items relate to, particularly if you may face a mountain of bolts later on and are not sure where each one came from  :-[
