SOURCE: 99 KX 500 skips in 3rd gear
when gears start to skip it is most likely one of towo things. either a shift fork is bent or the gear dogs are worn. when inspecting gears they may not appear to be broken or worn. what you are looking for is shiny worn dogs or slots on the gears. if they dont appear to have the newly casted look to them but yet shiny slightly worn spots. that is more then enough for a gear to kick out of place. next look at the shift forks. the pads of the forks should also appear to be new. under normal use these dont wear. so if there is any sign of scrapping, or shiny worn spots this indicates a bent fork. like i said these arent really noticeable at first glance but a good hard look will reveal these shiny spots that make a big difference.

SOURCE: Won't upshift under load.
In reality, the gearbox was never designed for power shifting. Time is lost in trying to do a power shift with the tranny not willing to cooperate. Give yourself a break and use the clutch. It beats a missed shift every time.

This needs a new gasket normally, unless there has been some impact damage which has cracked the casing(?) Check where the leak is coming from. If it is further in towards the middle of the bike it could be a crack or a seal between the gearbox and primary chaincase. If it is under the chaincase, you need to remove the footrest/boards and remove the chaincase screws, hitting the outer cover with a rubber mallet to break the seal, and taking off the chaincase cover, clean off the old gasket and applying a new one with some silicone sealer. Make sure you drain the oil from the chaincase or you will have a huge mess!
