Re: 03 YZ 250 won't shift into 3rd
You have a bent shift fork. The repair means removing the engine from the frame then tearing it down into about 75 parts which will then allow the bent shift fork to be replaced. This is not a job for the amature mechanic. Wish I were there with you to guide the repair.

Do you mean you can\'t find 3rd gear or it won\'t shift into 3rd gear? If you can\'t find 3rd gear, shift all the way down to neutral, then shift up 2 clicks. On my Suzuki Boulevard S-50 (VS-800) the shift order is 1st gear down, then up for neutral, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th. Your crotch rocket probably also has a 6th. If the problem is that it won\'t shift into 3rd, then you had best take it to the shop as it is not readily repairable without specialized tools and knowledge.
The gears on a motorcycle run in this order: first, neutral,
second, third, fourth and fifth. When you are moving, shifting up from
first gear will skip over neutral and shift you right into second gear.
The only time that shifting up from first will get you into neutral is
when you are not moving.
Pull in the clutch lever and tap the gear lever down until
it stops. This will signify first gear. Pressing the gear lever down
will shift you down one step and pressing it up will shift up one step.
Tap the gear lever up one click while still holding in the clutch. This will put the bike into neutral.
Start the bike. The bike needs to be in neutral to start.
Hold in the clutch lever and tap the shifting lever down to shift to first gear.
Release the clutch slowly and give it just enough gas to get moving.
Listen to the motor to know when you need to shift. If the
engine is making a low grumbling noise, then it will need to be shifted
down. If it is making a high squealing noise, then it needs to be
