    It could be difficult to do gears yourself if you never have. there are some speciial tools required to do them, and they can sometimes be a pain to get clearances sorrect. these are critical for prolonged gear life. it might cost as much to buy the tools to do it right as to have somebody do them for you. and if you do it wrong, well the gears aren't cheap to start with!!

    I spent all morning with a friend who swaps em for a living, my advice is to find someone who really knows what they are doing and do it with them...its extreamly tidious.
