Has the bike been dropped on the shifter side??? Has someone kick hard on the shifter leaver???There is a shifting rod the is under the side cover. If if is bent??? It will not shift like it should. You can pull this rod out when you take the side cover off, and straighten the rob back with a hammer. The rod has to be straight to shift proper.

SOURCE: Can select 1st gear and 2nd gear but am unable to

The gearbox does not need to be relpaced. The bike has a bent shift fork. The engine comes out then gets a complete tear down to get to the bad fork. This will probably cost $1200 or so. Call a dealer and get an estimate. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

SOURCE: 2002 YZ250 1ST GEAR PROBLEM ?? WILL NOT SELECT

Maybe not your answer but.If the bike has sat around for a while,the clutch plates can stick together.Not all,but some.This makes gear selection hard and as you describe,once things warm up,it gets better.When I said about sitting around,I meant for a period of a few months or so at one time.Hope this helps

My BT50 Mazda truck won't allow me to go into 2nd gear, it's really difficult and you need a lot of pressure on the gear stick, first gear is difficult too... Just had the clutch changed a year ago... Any...


check the box turret where the lever pivots for gear selection. IT may be loose here and not allowing proper alignment with the shift rail. The problem is that the shift rail selector for 1st and 2nd is not sliding freely and it is controlled by a position de dent ball that is spring loaded . Check the manual but there should be a plug on the side of the box in line with the rail that when removed will have a spring under it and a ball. IF the spring is deformed -replace it as it may be jamming the movement of the ball. At this point I do not believe that you will have to go into the box or that it is a clutch problem. A clutch problem would be indicated by not able to get 1st gear but second is synchronised so there would be little difficulty in that selection. The lever would be free to move also.

Problems selecting 1st gear peugeot 106 1.1 zest


If the clutch is a problem you will have difficulty selecting 1st only as the gears would be spinning from the engine revs.. I would say that the front input shaft (clutch shaft) bearing is failing allowing miss alignment of the synchros and not allowing proper engagement of the gears synchro rings. It means removal and repair to the gear box so the clutch can be inspected while the box is out.

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.

Is it ok to start off in 2nd gear and manually shift up to 3rd and then overdrive?


You can put the shifter in 2, 3, or overdrive. It will still start in first and shift up to whatever gear you have selected. Try it, you wont damage anythingl

I have an 80 series landcruiser with A442F transmission, built 1993. It will not select 1st gear or overdrive. It takes off in 2nd and shifts to 3rd normally, 1st gear can be selected manually and changes...


It seems like your "2nd start" button is turned on. The 80 series LC has a button next to the shifter which allows it to start in 2nd gear. If the button is not engaged then there could be a problem with the circuit, but that is not common

Help im having problems selecting 1st and 2nd gear and the gear stick is very lose on my 99 206 any ideas?


there is a central plastic ball fitted to your gear stick. Open the leather cover and check every single ball (i.e one in center, 2 on the side and locking balls of gear wires). May be you need to remove the whole central console to have a look at your gear stick main frame. Its not complicated but time consuming. It better to take it out and check it completely rather than having the same problem again. The problem with gear shifting could be on gearbox side as you only mentioned the 1st and 2nd gear. But sort this thing out then you'll know better. If you need any help then pls inform.

The gear stick has no resistance, I can only select two gears and it feels like Im stirring porridge when I do try and select a gear.


i'm unfamilar with the exact car but it sounds like part of your gear selection linkage is broken. This would be the part that is used to select the gears you can't select. I have seen some cars that use two cables, one for 1st and 2nd gear and the second for 3rd and 4th gear. I have also seen cars that use metal rods from the shifter to the transmission much like the cable setup, one rod for 1st and 2nd gear and the other rod for 3th and 4th gear.

Hope this in some way helps.
