Question about 2005 kawasaki KLE 500
My bike has milage of about 13.000 suddenly last year it became difficult to reach the right gear, going down from 6 to 5 was almost impossible. But also other levels gave problems. We've already changed the oil, checked the rest, nothing has damaged, what could be the cause of this and how possibly to solve this. It's becoming dangerous since you don't know what gear you're driving and you can't react in the correct way.
Hi, Pierre and the usual suspects are:
1. Clutch not adjusted properly.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
2. Primary chaincase overfilled with lubricant.
3. Corners wore off shifter clutch dogs.
4. Shifter return spring bent or broken.
5. Bent shifter rod.
6. A loose shift lever on shifter shaft.
7. Shifter forks sprung.
8. Shifter pawl needs adjusting.
9. Heel/toe shifter coming in contact with the floorboard.
10. Transmission oil too heavy.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
To my knowledge, the engine and the gear/transmission share the same oil in the crankcase. Clutch cable adjustment on most bikes could be done 2 ways:
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

there should be a little window just below the oil fill area that says high and low, that's where you gauge the level of oil you have. it's not a dipstick, and not very precise, but that's it.

The bike has some bent shift forks. Bent shift forks do not move the slider gears properly when changing gears. Expensive to fix.
