Second Gear ????

5 posts in this topic

I am riding a 2010 yz450, Just wondering if anyone else has had any problems shifting into 2nd. I recently changed the oil and put a different oil in it after the oil change it was very difficult to shift into second. I put yamalube in it again and it seemed to get a little bit better but still hard to shift...... any ideas ??????

Thanks

I don't have that much of a problem on my yz but I do find myself not pulling it up enough and just hitting neutral. Then hammering on the throttle only to go nowhere and hit the limiter.....:busted:

Ok guys I am going to sound like an idiot but here goes, the problem was more simple than the oil, when I pulled off the shifter to replace the cam chain I didn't put it back in the same spot it was to low. I moved the shifter up 2 notches and problem solved it shifts great again, thanks for all the info and help
