Welcome to the forum. The boxes are rebuildable. A specialist will charge around 500 to 900 pounds depending on where you are in the UK. The r72 that you have is notorious for having open bearings that don't have sufficient lubrication. Suzuki amended the design to a sealed type in 2009 and these are used in a rebuild.

When rebuilding gearbox it's best leave seals on the bearings due to lack of oil circulation in gearbox, your experience has saved me a world of grief

Perhaps there will be a reconditioned gearbox for sale in the near future? :whistle:

Yes in the r72 box but in the earlier pre 2005 r7me box the oil circuit was better and those older boxes were very very reliable.
