Hi Dan. 
Thanks for the direct ask. As top fuel has said. Most probably the output shaft seal behind the engine sprocket that is leaking. You may have to do a bit of de-greasing about that area to spot the leak and even take off the sprocket to tell for sure it is leaking. A new seal can be inserted from the outside. A repair shop should not charge you too much to replace it, or get yourself a workshop manual for the beast and have a go yourself. Happy to talk to you more about it. Good Luck. 
regards robotek

SOURCE: 650 V-Star Classic Bike goes into gear but won't move

Known issue with the 650 vstars...no recall from yamaha though. The drive shaft splines are **** and they shear off on the shaft and the side that goes in the gearbox. Gearbox (rear drive unit) = $825 Shaft = 160. Have to buy the gearbox as a whole because yamaha is greedy.

You have four problems.

  • A couple of shift forks are bent and need to be replaced
  • A gear set or gear shaft may need to be replaced
  • The rubber seals on the carb need to be replaced
  • Getting new parts will not be easy
Bent forks are the shifting problem. The grinding is probably the gears not engaging properly due to the bad forks. (It could also be be bad crank bearings). The high speed problem is either an air leak at the carb caused by a hardened rubber manifold or hardened "O" ring seals on the manifold. Tighten the carb mounting bolts if they are a bit loose. The throttle cable may need lubrication or replacement if it does not move freely. Does the hand throttle snap back when released? It should.

SOURCE: 1997 Yamaha YZF 1000 clutch and/or transmission problem?

well this is something that is as you said " not normal" i would guess that clutch is smoked. after it warms up do a 3rd gear roll on at about 45 mph. if you drop the hammer and the motor revs and you don't go anywhere stop the ride and R&R your clutch
something else to make sure of is that you clutch fuild is good and has no air in the line
Good luck

Won t go into gear


Dont run your bike. Drain the primary/transmission fluid and remove the primary cover. If you dont imediatly see the problem put the shift lever on the shaft and put bike in gear by gently rocking back and forth. If you still dont see the problem it depends on the year your Sportster was made. If the noise is indeed comming from the left side (primary side) you will see what is hitting what and making that noise.

Gearbox and 3rd geR


Honestly, you're going to have to take the transmission out and check the rod. When he had the accident, he probably did so in 3rd gear. That probably hurt! Anyways, when you drop a bike on the left side and the shifter hits the ground or gets damaged, it can easily bend or even break components inside the transmission. I had the same problem on my old yamaha FZR 600R. I had to take the transmission cover off and make some adjustments. Afterwards it was fine, but if you don't know what you're doing, you can really mess it up and have bigger problems. Take it to a pro and let them do it for you. Well worth the money instead of risking your life.

No second gear


Instructions

1.
The 2nd gear lockout is, a mechanical speed sensing mechanism. It doesn't care if the engine is running. You bypass it by scooting the bike forward, about 5-6 mph, while shifting the transmission into 2nd gear.
2

Stand on the left side of the bike, with the ignition "ON" and the transmission in neutral.
3 With your right foot on the ground, behind your left foot: place your left foot on the left foot peg, with your toe under the shifter; squeeze in the clutch.
*4.Scoot the bike forward about 5-6 mph, with your right foot, and shift the transmission into 2nd gear, with your left foot. If you accidentally go into 3rd, or some higher gear, you can easily shift back down into 2nd, without further movement of the bike.
5.To start the bike: Apply the choke if the engine is cold. Squeeze in the clutch and push the bike forward, both feet on the ground, about 8-12 mph. Release the clutch until the engine start
6
As soon as the engine starts: squeeze in the clutch and shift the bike into neutral.

Hi,my 1997 V-Max has got either a clutch or gear problem,when it goes into v-boost in 3rd gear it slips back to 2nd gear.


The coggs between the gears are worn, no simple fix. you just cant get on it very hard. And if you do it will strip out 2nd gear. In order to remove and replace the worn out gear you have to remove the engine from the bike, take off the upper half and split the case. and if youre going to go through all this trouble you might as well rebuild the whole engine. So I had a Vmax that 2nd and 3rd gear went out on me, (my heavy right hand and all) I could still ride it. the gas mpg was bad reving 1st till about 20 mph then skipping to 4th. But hey I put over 40k with it acting this way before I sold her and purchased anouther... Enjoy your beast and she will take good care of you

I have a 2006 Yamaha TTR 230 that is stuck in 3rd gear. The clutch is adjusted properly and there is good oil in the motor/transmission. There are not that many hours on the bike and it has been serviced...


The usual cause is a bent shift fork or bent shifter shaft. Both could be present. Did the bike fall or strike a rock, tree or other object on the shifter side? There is an outside chance the shift limiter or index wheel has something funky going on. The mechanic will pull the left and right case covers off with the engine still in the frame. At this point he should be able to check the shifter shaft, shift limiter and index wheel. If no problem is found it will be time to pull the engine and split the case halves. This will give access to the shift forks. The cost will probably around $800 to $900... Bummer.

My 2 months R15 having loud noise from the gear box when I accelerate. The noise gone when I pull the clutch. Never happened during the first 1000Km.


that means trouble, specially when the noise goes away when you press the clutch. Here are you possible issues.

Unbalanced Cam.
Broken Shaft bearing
Broken lining.
About to be broken gear selector.

Best move is to take this to the dealer where you bought it and have it replaced with a new unit, this will surely get you mad when your bike becomes a rolling chassis because of this issue.

Whining from transmission or shaft drive , yamaha xvs650 2004 mod


Check the gear oil level in the shaft drive and make sure it is the right level, and that you are using the proper type of oil (check your service manual).

However, I understand it's normal for these bikes to exhibit some gear noise at low speed due to the design of the transmission (straight-cut gears).

Cranks won't move


Sounds like the clutch is worn out. It sounds like it is slipping so badly it won't transmit enough power to move the bike.
As far as only going in 3 gears with the engine not running, are you spinning the rear wheel while trying to shift it? The trans shafts have to be spinning to be able to shift through the entire gear range.Try shifting it with the engine running and see if you get all 5. If you do, there is no problem with the transmission.
