'84 xr200r shift problem

I just bought this bike a few days ago for m girlfriend to ride. the guys i got it from where older, and said it had been sitting around unridden for years. when i got it it ran fine, and shifted they said it was only the second time they had started this year. my girlfriend has only riden twice for short periods of time, and now the bike is having a hell of a time getting in to second gear, but once you get it there you can get in to the others. the only gear with a problem is getting in to second from lower, not higher what do you think? does this sound expensive, or?

There is a very small space on the shifter drum for neutral.
After a lot of miles they usually get difficult due to the fact that they wear. The only thing you can do is remove the shifter drum and inspect for wear and usually replace it.

Good luck and happy riding

Hi, David I would love to help you with your engine or chassis noise but I just loaned my brand new pair of listening ears to your local dealer's chief technician so he could take your bike for a test ride and give you his professional opinion and estimate about your noise and repair cost.

Have a bike service center checkout the gearcase. It sounds like it's shot! Especially with the age of it.

I'm looking for a recumbent bike manual. I put in a request to a fixya member a few days ago. However, the original request from a member for that same manual was several years ago. How do I know...

Beside the riding position, what is different about a 'bent?

Generic bike manuals or component guides will apply to whatever frame carries the parts that need servicing.

You COULD try the manuafacturer's website or name the bike for us.

OR hit the search engines with specific questions like "how to shift", etc. Many hits have videos.

I find this site very helpful....

I have a Honda XR400 dirt bike and am having trouble starting it, its got compression, spark, have fully stripped an cleaned carbareter, has fuel have tryed crash starting it an it does want to fire any...

I have a 2003 XR 400 that I bought in 2005 nearly new (seller was more of an MX guy than trail guy). Thing was HARD to start no matter the conditions; hot day or cold day, sea level or 7000', dry or wet. Once I tired myself out completely and got it running, it would restart ok, but still always a challenge. After months of gritting it out, I followed the advice of everyone online. I bought a pumper carb. Don't even screw around with getting just the right jets, or all the other stuff you've already done. You bolt on the carburetor that the bike should have shipped with and you'll be one or two kicks from a nice run/idle/ride. I ride literally from sea level to 5000' with zero issues. I ride at 7000' no issues. Seriously, It was the best ~$350 I ever spent.

Do you have any idea where your noise is coming from ? if its under the tank it could be a few different things, maybe a spark plug backed out ? also there are some hoses for the clean air system that are under the tank, your're likely going to have to remove the fuel tank and take a peek.
