Goes in gear but wont move

the clutch pressure plate is not engaging because the actuation is not working
If it is hydraulic then the problem may be in the master cylinder with a blocked compensating port or the slave cylinder piston is jammed in the out position and not returning
or if it is a cable operation the cable is jammed in the case and not allowing clutch operation

My 03 Kawasaki Bayou 250 will slip out of 5th gear and sometimes will not go into 5th it has a fresh oil change and the right amount of oil

id have a professional take a look at your gear case , there sometimes is too much free play in trip lever for gears and it cant reach the farthest ones , also it could be the trip lever or case has been damaged by hitting something (happens) this will move the end play of trip lever too far away to reach end gears , removing a gear case side is a little too extreme unless your a professional mechanic as there are lots of tiny bearings and things inside there to move/loose not to mention the almost half a gallon of gear lube thats gonna run out

Seized gear box.

check the selector levers for wear and possible jamming or if you have the lever directly into the top of the box then check the lever pivot pin in the turret of the gear box.

T56 6Sp manual not engaging, gear lever sloppy

Check and bleed the clutch system. If the clutch is working correctly there will be no clashing of the gears during selection or attempted selection. Pull the gear lever out of the turret section of the gear box and see if the pin in the side that the lever pivots on is still intact. If ok undo the turret section of the box and ensure that the plastic cup on the end of the lever is still in place . There is normally a small cup that fits over the end of the lever that takes the gear noise out of the gear lever and it also takes up the clearance between the end and the slots in the selector rails.

My handbreak light wont turn off after i relase the handbreak why is that happening should i be warried about this

Its just a spring pressure switch located close to the brake lever.
Check that the lever goes down completely. Could be an old, hard french fry or some other debris jamming the mechanism or, it is probably just stuck or broken. Removing the wire connector from the switch should turn the light off. If the brake is adjusted properly the vehicle wont move with the brake on, so you wont need a "light" to remind you to release it.

Will not shift into 3rd gear

Problem within the gear box or a possible misalignment of the gear stick with the lever movements.
Make sure there is no PLAY on the gear shaft . If so the gear must shift over or else the problem can be the selector jamming within the box.
If there is play in the gear movement then the bushes could be worn out- sometimes nylon bushes gets damaged.
