Gz125 gear lever moving inwards on shaft

I purchased a dropped 2008 suzuki gz125 and the gear lever seems to move inwards on its shaft (located on back of footrest hanger) should this shaft have some kind of pin,clip,spring or circlip on the end to stop the lever moving inwards along the shaft as when it moves it becomes increasingly awkward to change gear (both up and down)

Yes it does have either a "sir-clip" or a "C-clip" that holds the shaft in place. You mentioned the bike was dropped, this is very typical when that happens. If the lever is part of a linkage system you will find a groove on the shaft that that is moving where the clip belongs. If it is a sir-clip there is a good chance it is just popped off the groove and all you may have to do is slip it back on by pushing it with a screw driver, if the clip is gone you may be able to measure the shaft diameter and go to the local automotive parts house and get a standard snap ring that will fit your shaft.

I have a Suzuki gz125 marauder and there seems to be excessive play on the gear shifter. I also have a problem selecting neutral. I don't know if these problems are connected, but any advice would be...


a good place to start is the pinch bolt that tightens the shift lever to the shaft- but if its only neutral you have a problem with it could be more than that-has it got 'false neutrals' ?

Hello.Owner of 1990 XT600 2KF,30.000 km in very good condition. after een steep ride in first gear,I cannot shift to first gear.It seems stuck.Engine off: no problem changing gears. What can this be: Oil...


If the clutch is operating fine as well as the shift mechanism, it's either a bearing or a internally cracked case that's allowing the bearing to move. First gear is actuated on the rear transmission shaft that Is common to the drive sprocket on the left side of the bike, and an idler gear that engages the kick start lever to the clutch basket. This is located under the right engine case cover. Remove the chain and sprocket and check the shaft to see if it will move up and down in the bearing. If that's solid, remove the right side cover and check the case and bearing under the idler gear. I have had Yamaha cases crack at that bearing area and cause that same problem. Good luck!

I have a 1981 suzuki gs 400 and the gear lever seams to be sticking badly. Can't get it back into neutral ? It has been leaking but I don't know where from


Chances are strong the bike has a bent shift fork. This is a major repair requiring a complete engine tear down. As far as the leak goes, there is a shift shaft seal, drive-shaft ( sprocket shaft ) seal, Kick shaft seal. shift drum switch seal, crank shaft seals and clutch shaft seal. Also, there is the right outer case cover gasket, oil filler "O" ring seal, and the center case mating surface seal. The center case seal is actually a semi-liquid gasket compound applied to the mating surfaces prior to the center case re-assembly. The shift fork repair is not recommended for the unexperienced home mechanic. Below are the main parts if a Suzuki shift mechanism and a diagram of how the shift forks move left and right to change gears. Please rate my answer. Thanks! tombones49_15.gif

Wont shift gears


WOW, I haven't ran into this for decades. Well, I would bet, the circlip that keeps the shift shaft into place is missing, the bike fall hard on the left side sometime? Well, if the clip is missing, the shaft can move to the right and there is a lever with a hooked arm that rides upon a shift drum (all trail bikes have similar system) and moving the shift lever, moves the hooked arm over the drum, causing a shift in gears. If the shaft is loose, the hooked arm will eventually come off the drum. Not sure, but it's probably under the r/s cover. This is a repair I did a lot in jr.high school for my friends. Not too hard.

Rear brake sticking


Try oiling (lightly) the brake shaft where it goes into the rear wheel hub and where there are moving pivots and bushings. Make sure the spring on the pedal arm returns the arm smartly. Worst case, remove the rear wheel and grease lightly, the brake cam which sits between the ends of the brake shoes. Wipe out any brake dust from the brake shoes and drum. Hope this helps!

Transmission will not go into 1st gear on suzuki gsx 500. Is there an adjustment that can be made? Thanks, Steve


there is no adjustment for this as far as i know, just check that nothing is stopping the gear lever from being pressed all the way down, does it go down, but wont select the gear, or does it not move down? most likely the problem is in your gearbox unfortunatly.

Gear lever has dropped down and i have no first


It sounds like the splines have stripped on your shift pedal. Can you bring it back to the normal position and tighten it? I had the same thing happen on a honda kick starter, I neglected it to the point that it couldn't be repaired without replacing the shaft. Try the tightening I suggested and see if it helps, you may need a new shift pedal if the splines are stripped. Good Luck! i hope you find this very helpful!

My 125dt dosent sart or kick sart,the gear inside have a bushing in shafting?or it was broken..


Common cause of kickstarter not engaging(I am guesing that this is your problem) is a broken spring on the kickstart mechanism,or that the kickstart idler gear cerclip has fallen off(this allows the idler gear to move forward on the shaft & thus won't allow the kickstart gear to transfer drive to the clutch hub).Remove clutch cover, put kickstart lever back on shaft spline,activate kickstart lever by hand(easier with sparkplug removed+in neautral)as kickstart lever moves down 90 degrees the gear on the kickstarter mechanism should move out to engage with gear next to it(kickstart idler gear).If the gear on the kickstarter mechanism dosn't move outward it has a broken spring on the kickstart mechanism.replace spring and all should work.(if the spring is broken you need to try find the broken piece with a magnetic pick-up tool as the broken part can cause further damage if not removed)To do this job I highly recommend you first purchase a workshop manual which will guide you through these processes.After all a manual is the most valuable tool in your tool kit.
