Lost 6th gear on 06 wr 450

Riding on a 2 track road and it was working fine, got into a more technical section and downshifted. Once back in the open I couldn't get 6th. All other gears are smooth as ever. Any pointers out there?

:excuseme:

I only wish my 07 WR450 had a 6th gear:prof:

I think mine is missing too!:excuseme:

That's a known problem with the WR's, unfortunely the only way to fix it is to buy a new bike. I feel for you dude.

It must have fallen off. Go back and look for it.

Yeah MIne is missing too, think I put it in my ktm.

6th on my 400 seems just like 5th??

I sold my last Husqvarna in 1992. I bought a 1992 Yamaha 250WR and never looked back. I've owned four Yamahas since then and I am still looking for 6th gear. Is this what they call muscle memory?

Hazeee , Dude's I just put a dual range on my wr.

I can't believe how tall fifth gear is on the WR. I'll shift into fifth doing a little as 45mph and i've had her up to 96mph.

I lost mine, but I found out where it went.....

I found it in the wife's TTR 230...She SAYS she didn't take it....but, I dunno....

Mine somehow found itself on my buddies ktm. If you change to orange plastics, it may come back!

It's there. All WR's have 6th gear. Unfortunately the engineers used the same ratio as 5th so it's like overdrive without the drive. If you miss the shift, just keep pulling up on the shifter.

You guys r killing me :excuseme::smirk:

just keep pulling up on the shifter.

Is that what your calling it now.

Dude let me know when you find that gear. I need one for my 650

I got nothin else. I'm going back out to the garage and work on my bike. See ya next weekend MR Cane. I've ordered good weather for the trip. supposed to be in the 80's.

Go back and read the sticky at the top of this forum. You should have used loctite on it before it fell out!

You think you've got problems, I've lost reverse as well!!!!!

I just bought a 06 wr somewhere between Atlanta and Spartanburg I lost my 6th gear somewhere on 85 :excuseme:
