The first problem may be a slightly bent shift fork but you'd probably have to pull it apart to find out for sure. Alot of these older yammies hate old oil. Try putting some fresh oil in and see what happens. Your second problem sounds like you have a slightly lean idle. You may want to try adjusting your idle mix screws a little bit but only adjust them in 1/8 turn increments and let the bike run for at least 30 seconds between adjustments to allow the mix time to right itself.,,

Gears grind when shifting

Check the clutch adjustment. If it's not fully engaging it will be hard to shift into gears and it will give you the grinding sound. Buell's shift hard to begin.

I have a 2009 yz250 with a good amount of time on it and i believe 2nd gear is out of it. it grinds n almost sounds like a chain slipping when i get on the gas and is like its in neutrel. what does it take...

Yes, the case will need to be split. The problem is likely to be a bent shift fork. A bent fork can stop the dogs on the slider gear from fully engaging in a gear. If the problem turns out to be a stripped gear, you need to replace BOTH the stripped gear AND the gear the bad gear meshes with. tombones49_273.gif

When engaging clutch, a slight grinding noise and power seems to fade. Once in gear all seems normal. Happens in every gear.

hi, it seems if your clutch has worn out, if it slips and smells of carbon, it will get worst. the inner and outer clutch pad seems to be worn. it could be it needs to be adjusted or one of the clutch pressure springs have broken. gerry

On two seperate occassions, my 1988 HD FXRS seemed to lose power suddenly on the freeway - It went from 70 mph to 15 mph without shifting down from fifth. I attempted shifting through all gears but nothing...

The latter part sounds like insufficient play on the clutch lever--the clutch seems to be slipping. Sudden power loss is usually linked to the ignition system. Have you checked the lube level in the transmission? You could be having a bearing seizure if the lube is low.

My sons klx 110 grinds when downshifting

While sitting still the gears are not moving. This sounds like a slightly bent shift fork. In the diagram below the slider gear moves left and right to engage the gears. The gear "dogs" fit into holes cast into the stationary gears. The grinding takes place as the fork moves the slider into first gear but the dogs are not getting moved the full distance needed to fully engage the gear because of the bent fork. The center case must be split to gain access to the gears and shift forks.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

Feels like gears are slipping with any kind of power

If you are hearing a bad grinding noise then Stop riding the bike NOW. If you continue to ride, or run the engine, you will only do more internal damage and make the repair cost higher. Chances are you have a bent shift fork and the noise is the engaging dogs on the slider gear grinding the side of a fixed gear because the bent fork is preventing full engagement.

The entire engine comes out of the frame and gets completely torn down. The top end comes off, the case covers come off, the clutch, shift shaft, kick starter, flywheel and electrics all come off. Then the case is split to gain access to the gears and shift drum. The gears and shift drum now get removed and now the fork can be replaced. If a gear needs to be replaced because of a broken teeth, replace also any gear the teeth mesh with. A few special tools are needed. Sorry for having to give you the bad news.

Engaging 1st gear the gear grinds an clunks into

Often the transmission will clunk when first starting up and shifting into 1st. gear. To help alleviate this, hold the clutch lever in for thirty seconds or so before making that first shift into gear. This should make shifting into first much quieter.
This situation occurs on most of the FJRs, even when new.
