Shifting problem 02 YZ426.

3 posts in this topic

a few weeks ago i cased a tree on the shifter side of my bike. Since then I have had trouble with the shifter getting stuck between gears when shifting up or down a gear.

I keep the oil changed often. However, the last oil change, I switched over to Motul 5100 10/40 synthetic.

Ive got about 400 miles life to date on the bike.

Should I be concerned. Just wondering if I will have to split the case. :thumbsup:

You may have bent the shift shaft, this can be checked/replaced w/ the motor still in the bike, but you will have to take the clutch out.

It is also possible that you bent a shift fork, but it is more likely the shaft or something else in the external (outside the tranny) shifting mechanism.

Hope this helps.
