Question about 1988 Yamaha FZR 1000
The bike has a slightly bent shift fork. The slider gear that engages the second gear wheel is not fully engaging because of the bend. You must remove the engine from the frame and yes, the lower case half will need to split from the upper case half. You will not need to tear down the top end at all unless you choose to replace the rings. An observation; you are a brave man, a very good mechanic, or someone seeking adventure if you install new rings. There are a lot of parts and the cam chain re-assembly leaves no room for error. I would do it, but then again, I have 42 years of experience. Please rate my answer, Thanks!

Pulled a D reg one of these apart a couple of years ago and had to take off the top end to split the bottom as mr yamaha in his wisdom had hidden bolts between the barrels that hold the crankcase together.
check your manual well - also the earlier models had some gears presed onto the mainshafts not splined - again worth checking
