Sputtering in 5th gear on a 2000 WR400
Posted April 20, 2004 - 11:52 AM
Again, this ONLY affects 5th gear. The bike runs very smooth up to 4th gear with plenty of power and no sputtering. I figured if it was the clutch it would affect all gears. I can lug this up a hill in 3rd and still not slip. I tried every which way to get it to happen in other gears this last weekend. I even put a new spark plug in before I rode. Any suggestions please! I am running out of patience.

I know the first time I did a gearbox in I thought I had some sort of electrical miss.
If its only fifth gear then the only things diferent in that situation is the gear box or some sort electrical situation with the neutral switch.
The neutral switch is easy to disconnect - see all the blue wire mod stuff.

Do you have to split the case to check to see if the gears are broken or can you just remove the clutch cover?

But a visual inspection unfortunitely requires splitting the cases.
