Question about 2002 Yamaha XJR 1300
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.

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.

Testimonial: "Thanks very much for your advice and help!!!!! much appreciated!"
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
