Have an 01 yz250 that runs but I cant get it out of gear. It is like neutral has disappeard. When you pull in the clutch the rear wheel keeps moving when running. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
HAVE A LOOK AT WHERE THE SELECTOR MEETS THE STUB AS THE GRIP ON MINE WORE OUT AND I COULDNT SELECT NEUTRAL OR FIRST! WAS FINE SHIFTING UP THO! IF IT IS THIS IS THE PROBLEM DONT REPLACE THE SHAFT ETC USE A SMALL METAL DRILL THROUGH THE CLAMP ON THE GEAR SELECTOR AND SHAFT AND USE A GOOD TIGHT FITTING NUT & BOLT SHOULD HELP! HOPE THIS IS SOME USE

Well. I'm a motorcycle mechanic and my 2004 RMZ 250 recently did the same thing, The Shift forks inside my transmission actually bent and were not moving the gears as far as they needed to go and eventually got to where it quit shifting all together, recently also repaired a CR 125 That wouldn't shift at all and it was the shaft the shift forks go on was bent and hung the shift forks. Sounds like your shift forks are bent to me though.
You have a bent shift fork. The engine will need to come out of the bike then the gear box gets opened up, ( major repair job ), the offending shift fork gets replaced then all gets reassembled. This is not a project for the amature mechanic unless you want to buy a new bike.
for 02 yamaha put the balky yz426f tranny in the yz250's, just for duribility tho....other than that yamaha manufactures might do a slite rejetting, maybe a head compession change, and other small changes. the yz line around that time were great bikes, and still are, so there was really no flaw and nothing really had to be changed because the yz250 of any year was a bulletproof bike. the only flaw i can think of is that these 01 -03 yz"s were only a few years off from having the plug and play aluminim frame, which to me pretty sweet. good luck
