Hi, William and the usual suspects are:

3. A broken clutch rod.
4. Slave cylinder piston stuck.
5. Clutch plate missing from the clutch pack.
6. Clutch plates have worn past minimum specifications.

It most likely is the shift return spring.

SOURCE: 2007 Honda CRF 230-Not shifting out of 1st gear

I have a feeling you broke a yoke, That bike is fairly new, and I don't think the tranny is trashed yet, probably just something in there slipped off. I don't know how hard it is to get to the gearbox, but you have to go in there and find out. I couldn't find any complaints about it in the forums, supposed to be a nice bike. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: gear selector honda shadow

Sounds like a bent shift fork or two. Replacing the bad shift forks is major surgery and is NOT recommended for the inexperienced mechanic. Several special tools are needed. The top end and gearbox get totally torn down just to get to the shift forks. This is a very expensive repair, guessing $2100 or so at the dealers. Bummer. Contact a few dealers to cofirm my view of the problem and the probable repair cost. The shift forks move left and right as the shift drum is rotated when you lift or push down on the shift pedal.

SOURCE: rattle and slippage when engaging

Clutch plates may be worn. You would have to pull the side cover to inspect them. Honda clutch's always rattle at an idle when in neutral. If you just pull in the clutch lever the rattle will go away. Let the lever out and it will rattle again. As for the slippage, if your clutch cable is binding at all it will keep the clutch from fully engaging when you release the handle. This will cause the clutch to slip for a second or two until the cable fully releases from the bind. Any resistance in the cable and you should replace it.

SOURCE: Hi. I have 1998 honda vtr firestorm, which has

This is caused by the gear pack engagement "Dogs" inside the transmission being worn, you will need to replace them, this entails removing the engine from the motorcycle and then the cylinder barrels and then splitting the transmission cases, the job requires many special tools and factory training and manuals to complete the repair, unless you really know this work you can cause allot of damage. Bottom line? it is very expensive to fix and is a common issue with all Honda motorcycle transmissions on there high powered models. There is only one suggestion that I can make and that is to lower the idle down to the low end of the idle speed spec, which is about 850-1000 RPMs, that lessens the engagement bang. This information comes from a friend who was a motorcycle mechanic for years

Any adjustment for hino dutro tipper pto.


When engaging the pto it is important that you have the clutch disengaged so that the pto gear is not spinning in the box.before it engages.
The pto gear runs off the counter shaft of the gear box and is spinning all the time the engine is running
when engaging the pto ,you are physically engaging a gear ( like selecting 1st gear) so you have to stop the counter shaft spinning so that the pto gear will engage with slashing

Hello this sounds like you have a transmission problem than a clutch problem.
The cogs on the gear or gears are worn and under load they are pushing out of their locked position.
A slipping clutch will not suddenly engage disengage quickly.

GPX 250 will not go into gear.


try to change 1st gear to the last if all of the gear does not engage you have a high clutch try to lower the adjustment of the clutch cable if you tried it already and still the same then the problem is your shifting drum it is worn out that's why it cant push the first gear.
