You need the selector in the gearbox renewing. Sounds like it`s bent. Happened on my yz490 years ago

Hi, Www_105eya 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 problem.

My dirt bike isn't changing gears


sounds simple, but make sure your shift peg isn't worn at the splines. some times it will pull it to the shift point then it will slip.

Aside from that you have to do the complete tear down to get into the gearcase. check your oil make sure its clean.

2005 yz 250 shifting problems


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.

Iv got a 01 yz250.it dosent click into 5th gear.All it does is make a clunky noise like its trying to click in but nothing happens.1n234 are algood.anyone know whats happening??


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.

01 motor in 03 frame


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
