Difficulty Shifting 2011 YZ450

6 posts in this topic

I am having difficulty shifting 2011 YZ450 during riding. I attempt to shift with my foot and at times it does not go into gear or it is very vague whether the gear change has occurred. What would this be a sign of ? Bent shift fork?

What would be a way to test whether there is a problem or it is an issue with my technique?

Oil was changed before the last ride so prob 1-2 hrs ago. I will take a look at the shift lever. I replaced the stock shifter with a longer hammerhead version. I tightened it previously when I noticed it was slightly loose.

Those hammerhead levers seem to loosen a lot quicker. I had to grind the groove bigger after one season to allow for more tightening space.
