I have a 1978 Yamaha dt 175 enduro motorcycle, got it to start and run but when you put it in gear to go it goes in reverse. what is rotation or why is this like it is?
DUDE! I totally just wrote this long ol answer to your problem ,then the computer didn't take it! Anyway, ok, Dude, just take the right side cover off, and check for damage to your clutch housing gear, the gear behind you clutch housing, and your final drive gear.....What I think happenned is that someone (while working on that bike) put your final drive gear on backwards, and it's still meshing with your clutch housing gear, but since the gear is backwards, it's pushing your bike bakwards......Not to mention though, if that is it, Man your bike aint feeling to happy inside, I'm thinkin' "man, if that bike is doing that, there's gotta be some damage somewhere".....But, I'm hoping that there isn't, so we'll pray to GOD that there isn't.....Ironically, you wont really hurt the bike too bad, AS LONG AS YOU DON'T PUT IT IN GEAR! But think of it this way, accidentally, you have one of the most unique bikes in the world.....Imagine how many people you could impress on the computer, if you could learn to ride that baby backwards dude! They would be like, "dude! how does he do that" ? how did some one put a reverse gear on a motorcycle like that"?? Man, talk about the possibilities, in circuses, or carnivals.....Anyway, if you don't want all that, I would just look at taking the nut off the final drive gear, then just flipping over your gear the other way......Please let me know what you find, I'll try to help you more if you need it....Oh yeah, and by the way, your magneto ( on the left side ) of the crankcase, and your final drive gear,( on the right side ) of your motor, is supposed to spin towards the front of your motor cycle.....IF, by any chance they are not, then you got somethin' screwy goin' on inside the transmission.....somethin's reversed there hombre'.....THANKS, GOD BLESS.....JASON!
