3rd gear 04 wr 450

2 posts in this topic

hi pete i have an 05 wr450f with 7000km on the clock and 3rd gear went. i took it to my local mechanic 2 weeks ago and told me it was a common fault on these bikes and that he sees one or two a month like this, he stripped it down and said 3rd gear was totally gone and 5th was at 80% of its serviceable life. i pick the bike up tomorrow all done with new 3rd and 5th gears and shifter fork (whatever that is?) at a cost of £491!! i could still ride my bike in all gears but not 3rd but was advised not to incase i caused further problems.
