1999 Yamaha WR400F Transmission Problem? WTF...
Posted January 26, 2006 - 12:37 PM
Can you guys shed any light on it?
It is my friends form of transport to work so taking it to pieces it pretty hard leaving him with no transport, but he has never had this problem before until today. He rides the bike properly, I am begining to think the abuse it suffered in the hands of it's previous owner are really begining to show.
Thanks in advance

Here's a thread I posted a few years ago about this problem:

It ended up being a compilation of small problems that would not have been a big deal by them selfs but combined they were the root of the problem. First I removed the motor and Tran I tore the whole thing down valve job new piston. Then to the root of the evel so to speak. split the Tran. The dogs between 3rd and 4th were worn a bit so I replaced them also 1st was hurtin 5th wasn't too happy either all dogs problems the gears (teeth were fine). also there is a segment on the shift shaft that was worn so it went too. All in all I drooped 500 bucks on it and it is great now. Just a little patience and time it was real easy to do. The book says it all. Be prepared to wait a week for 3rd it came from Japan.Take lots of pic's for reference it was a great learning experience.
I hope this helps to not scare you away from trying your self. But it is an all day job.
