shift linkage problem
Posted May 29, 2000 - 10:03 AM
Last night my mechanic gave me a call about my 00WR400. He tells me that the 00WR has a problem with it's transmission locking in gear at approx 80 - 120 kms into it's life.
Has anyone else heard of this? I'm only at the 60 km mark and nervous about potentially causing for damage

A friend and I were riding about 2 1/2 weeks ago in the Hat. Just East of you and his 00 wr locked in 3rd.To it back to Blackfoot Cycle and Yamaha Canada is foot'n the bill. My question is will there be a recall or are we screwed after so long.
note: he only has 28 kms on it (12miles)

Thanks for the replies.
If Yamaha Canada has only heard of 2 instances , they must be near Toronto, Ontario/ both 2000 YZ 250's . Both guys are my friends, and they both had the problem in the last 6 weeks.....

I changed to the Michelin S-12 on the front and back. The tires are the greatest. I ride in mostly sandy soil, Michigan. After changing to the Michilen's i also had to chande to a 13 tooth front sproket due to a massive gain in traction.

Although I have 25 years of street riding and some racetrack experience, my skill level in the dirt is novice. I have a couple of buds that have offered to head into the hills with me, but schedules keep changing. I have a standing invite to teh MX trtack for tuesdays as one bud is parenting his kids through the junior MX stuff. .. so I rip around a bit and then hang with him while intaking water.
I have the WR pegged as a long-term scoot so I am not too worrried about how many hours I have on it. ... ask tme that question in 5 years and it'll be a totally different answer.
so.. I wait.... and rip-up the street in the mean time.
