DR650 dismantle. Save $$$

A recent motorcycle tear down to 3rd gear, should have required several "special suzuki" tools, none of which I needed, saving nearly $900. To undo clutch basket centre nut, simply take of drive sprocket and use 24mm socket over drive shaft to hold clutch basket still.

selecting 3rd gear


Do you mean you can\'t find 3rd gear or it won\'t shift into 3rd gear? If you can\'t find 3rd gear, shift all the way down to neutral, then shift up 2 clicks. On my Suzuki Boulevard S-50 (VS-800) the shift order is 1st gear down, then up for neutral, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th. Your crotch rocket probably also has a 6th. If the problem is that it won\'t shift into 3rd, then you had best take it to the shop as it is not readily repairable without specialized tools and knowledge.

no 3rd gear


You will need to have the ****** rebuilt most likely, that is very expensive, trust me. Also it is not a job for most owners that you can do at home, it requires special tools and manuals ands of course factory training.

rmz 250 2007 sometimes wont shift up from 2nd to 3rd?


The bike has a slightly bent shift fork. The repair requires a complete engine teardown. Special tools needed include a torque wrench, impact driver, flywheel puller, and case splitter. This repair is not recommended for the novice mechanic. There are a lot of parts involved and just one mess up can force you to take the engine in a basket and plead with the dealer to reassemble the parts. The dealer will charge you more to repair a basket of parts than if you had just let them do the repair from the start. Below is a generic diagram showing how the shift forks, ( your bike has three ), move slider gears left and right to engage other gears. Please rate my answer. tombones49_122.gif
