Sounds like bent shifting fork which is expensive. If you are not the 1st owner then you don't know how previous owner treated bike. Often sportbikes are rode hard and banged into 2nd gear which can eventually cause tranny problems like bent shifter fork. First look down by the shifter pedal and inspect that it is fastened securely to the shift rod coming out of the engine/trans case. There is a single bolt that holds the shift lever on a splined shaft and can come loose and cause problems.
If that is ok then find a local mechanic you trust....Good Luck !

I need 2,3 & 4 gear for Yamaha 1100 special 1982 model


Instructions
    • 1 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.
    • 2 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.
    • 3 Tap the gear lever up one click while still holding in the clutch. This will put the bike into neutral.
    • 4 Start the bike. The bike needs to be in neutral to start.
    • 5 Hold in the clutch lever and tap the shifting lever down to shift to first gear.
    • 6 Release the clutch slowly and give it just enough gas to get moving.
    • 7 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 shifted up.

My 2001 yzf 600 is stuck in neutral. whats wrong?


This bike and many of the 600 class lose 2nd gear and slip out on hard acceleration, then at easy acceleration as it wears more and eventually the kicking out of gear can bend a shift fork, the parts are not extremely expensive but the labor is going to be high because of a complete removal and teardown.

I bought a 2003 R6 from this guy who said the chain broke on him. The bike only in neutral and first gear. i cant hift up from one to two or neutral to two. Plus I dont the clutch is engaging at all. once...


personally I have never heard of a chain breaking and having any affect on the transmission and shifting. although if the chain broke and caught the shifter, it may have pulled the shifter so hard that it could have bent the shifting forks inside the transmission.. this would explain most of your problems..replace the chain,and with the bike "off" and in neutral, on level ground, rock it back and fourth about 6 inches and try shifting from neutral to 1st and then back up to neutral, and then to 2nd. keep rocking the bike back and fourth while doing this and do this WITHOUT using the clutch. If it wont go to the gears easily, the shift forks are likely bent. there is a safety switch for the kickstand that will shut the bike down if the kickstand is down and bike is in gear. if the kickstand is up and releasing the clutch shuts down the bike, the chain may have damaged that as well. Hope this helps..

When I shift from neutral to first, the bike turns off.


Does your bike have a side stand safety switch that turns the engine off if the bike is put in gear with the side stand down? Perhaps it is broken and that is the source of the problem.

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

Sounds like a bent shift fork of broken dog gear. Try cleaning the inside of trans with part light oil and solvent. (not fuel) Rock bike a few times and shift gears, Do not start. Keep doing so untill shifting gets easier. If this does not work. Try starting it one time and shift easy. Do not force. Still no luck - Split cases and repair

2001 yamaha yzfr1 shifting problems


You have a bent shift fork.
You will need an impact driver, flywheel puller, case splitter and torque wrench plus the normal screwdriver, pliers, etc.. Alternate to the special tools is taking it to the dealer and say "Fix it". I often tell people to take it to the shop just so they don't get into such an involved project.

The motor comes out of the bike then turned upside down for removal of the bottom case. The clutch, shift shaft, flywheel, electrics, gears and gear shafts gotta come out so you can get to the bad fork. There's much more but the idea is that you are better off having the shop do the repair unless you have experience, are extremely mechanically inclined, and have the tools. The bad news is that a shop is going to charge around $1500 for the repair. Some shop mechanics also repair bikes at home. If you find one, you can save $200 to $400 or so.
