First, you need a way to safely lift the bike off the ground so that there is no chance of it falling over. Lift the bike so that the wheel you're working on is just barely on the ground with no weight on it.
Let's take the front wheel first. Before you take anything off, look at the axle, spacers, speedo gear (if there is one) and everything else closely and remember how it looks. Next, take the nut of the end of the axle. Loosen the nuts on the clamp on the other side. Start sliding the axle out. As the axle comes out, take the spacers and either label them or lay them out so you can remember in which direction and order that they go back in. If your bike has a speedo drive on the front wheel, notice that the drive tang sits in a small slot on the wheel. When you go to put the wheel back on, do everything in reverse. Tighten the nut to 50 ft. lbs. and then tighten the two nuts of the clamp on the other side to 20 ft. lbs.
Rear wheel. Almost same as front wheel except you'll probably have to loosen the belt just a bit prior to sliding the axle out. Reinstall in the opposite order. Adjust tension on rear belt and align rear wheel straight in the swingarm. Tighten the rear axle nut to 50 ft. lbs.
When installing either wheel, you may have to spead the brake pads in order to get the disc started back up between them.
Double check all nuts, bolts, and test brakes on both wheels before riding. Failure to proper perform these procedures can result in serious injury or death. Don't hurt yourself because you forgot to tighten a nut.

you have a broken shifter pawl. It's behind the primary cover. I think you can get to it without removing the clutch but I may be wrong. At least on the newer models you don't have to pull the transmission out.

Testimonial: " I want to thank you for the info.I kind of had a hunch that ,that's what it was.Great advise on this subject"
The cams are numbered 1 through 4 starting at the rear going towards the front. The new oil pumps do not have to be timed like the '76 and earlier models did. Install #1 cam, install #3 and #4 cams and time them with each other then install the #2 timing it with the pinion gear, the #1 and the #3 cam.
