The Revwreck hardware that came across my benches was marginal if not worthless.
Even a complete set of internals in a box had to be custom-fit-assembled into a stock case.

But that was years ago.

I have heard many horror stories from days past about Revtech, but the set in my bike works fine, even though I would gladly get rid of the close ratios. I have heard that they have made great strides in quality, but I don't know for sure. I don't think they would be in business still, if they hadn't made major improvements. Just my little experience and thoughts.

I have had great problems with an Andrews gears set (4 speed).
I seized 2 times the countershaft cluster on the shaft!!!!!!
