Drain engine oil.pull right side (clutch) cover off. check shift shaft to see what is making it bind. check shift drum detent arm to see if it is engaging shift drum correctly.check if shift shaft is binding in the engine cases, may be bent. when you pull the cover you will need to scrape the old gasket off & replace, also engine oil & filter.

I've got a sym husky 125 when I change gear I have to push the gear lever down abit to change again is this normal ?


the lever should return to a central position so as to allow selection of the next gear
if you have to push it down a bit before next gear selection is possible it may need adjustment back to that central position
get a manual as to how to do that or take it to a service dealer and have them adjust it for you.

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.

Changing gears


Hi, Dave and the usual suspects are:
1. Clutch not disengaging.
2. Bent shift shaft.
3. Shift fork bent or seized.
4. Gear seized on the shaft.
5. Gear positioning lever binding.
6. Shift return spring weak or broken.
7. Shift return spring pin loose
8. Shift mechanism arm spring is broken.
9. Shift mechanism arm is broken.
10. Shift drum is broken.

Kawasaki vn1500 2nd gear jumping out


Hi, make sure your lever is adjusted to your foot. You can turn the linkage arm adjuster up or down to get a better throw on the lever. If you don't wear boots when riding, this is always a problem on a Kawasaki due to the positive neutral finder. The fist question you get when you call the Kawasaki Hotline is if the rider wears boots or not.
If adjusting the lever doesn't help the problem is internal. Under the gear change cover the items to check would be the pawl that rotates the drum and the detent arm and spring. If the edge of the pawl is worn, it won't move the drum far enough. If the detent arm or spring isn't working, it will want to drop into a false neutral. I've had very good luck by removing all of the parts and polishing them, removing any burrs and replacing the springs. If the problem isn't found under the cover in the gear change area then the only other solution is to pull the motor apart and inspect the tranny itself.

2008 Z750 bad grinding noise in first gear


It is possible that the first gear shift fork in the transmission is bent causing the 'dog-clutch' between two gears to just barely mesh. With engine off, push the shift into first and clutch lever released. Rock the bike back and forth to see if the gearing seems to be jumping in and out. There may be a problem with the shift lever shaft mechanism not allowing a complete shift into first gear. Hope this helps!

The Bike is now twelve months old with 4250 miles on clock At 9 months old with 3500 miles on clock it began to miss gear changes - up and down - mainly third gear to begin with then progressing to 3rd and...


It could be as simple as the selecter arm that turns the drum , this will be visible with the clutch cover off( and maybe the clutch) this selector arm is on the other end of the gear lever shaft

The drum is the internal part that positions the selectors in the gbox, when you say there is no resistance would mean its not turning this drum. so its probably not an internal gear or selector fork problem
