Hi, Gary you may need to overhaul your transmission shifting forks and or drum for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue. For more information about your issue please visit the website below. Good luck and have a nice day.

I have a 2000 yz125 and when I shift into 3rd gear and give it gas it kicks it back down to 2nd gear. sometimes I cant get it to shift into 2nd gear. any ideas? thanks


I am presuming you are giving the gear lever a positive shifting motion when changing gears.
If the gear lever is completely tight on the gear shift shaft and the toe of the lever does not touch the engine sidecover when changing up, you may have a worn roller shift lever or loose screws holding this mechanism in place. See the exploded view diagrams of the SHIFT CAM and SHIFT FORK with all part names and numbers on the link below.
Cheers!

Gear selector into 1st gear fine into 2nd gear having to take foot off peg to change gear it is the same through to 6th and back down again, gear change is smooth just far to much space on lever...


If gear selection is difficult it would likely be badly set clutch or a bent gear selector fork. Major strip and repair! If it is slack but easy to select gears then first check that the gear lever or linkage if it has one is tight on the shaft and not sloppy, nine times out of ten this is the answer. If not then it could be slack in the selector system, shims usually being the culprit. Expensive! Hope it is the lever....

How do i on a motorcycle go to first gear from 5th


hi, if when you start your bike you press the gear lever down to go to 1st from neutral and then pull it back up to go to 2nd,3rd,4th and 5th then the only way to get back into first gear is to press the gear lever down 4 times to get it back into 1st gear their is no quicker way to do this you have to work your way back down the gears.

if your coming to a stop quick then just pull the clutch in and keep pushing the lever down until it dont push down any further it will only go down 1 gear at a time so you will need to push it down 4 times but you dont need to count you can just keep pressing it down the gears until it dont go down any more then you know this is first, you need to keep the clutch in when doing this.

how ever if your slowing down is more gradual then what you can do is go from 5th down to 4th then let engine slow the bike down then when the revs drop down change down to 3rd and so on until you get ot 1st gear.

if your coming to a stop quick say at lights or junction then if the bike is in 5th gear then you can change down the gears once the bike has stopped just hold the clutch in when you stop and keep tapping the gear lever down until you feel that its not going down any more gears this way you know its in 1st without having to cound down the gears, their id no quicker way of going down the gears to get to 1st.

i hope i have read your question right and gave you the answer you was looking for if i got the question wrong then please explain then i can assist you further ok

Unable to change down gear. gear lever stays down


Well, first of all ofcourse find out how many gears you have, if you take it to a shop and they tell you you have "One down, four up"
It means starting from Neutral, you click down once for first gear, and from there you can click up to fifth.
Try finding an open area, gear up to 3rd or 4th then gear down a couple times.
Remember, you must be in gear 2 or higher to gear down.

Changing gears


goes into gear fine. Your boot is most likely preventing the lever from returning to zero. Then when you try to change this will happen. You need to either adjust your lever postion (1 set screw) or remove the bulky rubber foot pads. I have large feet, so removing the rubber pads was almost a necessity. Before doing that, I had to shift up with the little 1/4 bit of sole that stick out from the sides of your boot (if you have cheap boots like me!). ,,,
