Question about 1992 Suzuki DR 800 S
Was shifting gears going from third to fourth (I think) and heading down asphalted hill at about 50klms / hr and didn't shift the gear lever paddle up perhaps enough before releasing clutch - then there was a click and the motor raced and I felt as though I were in neutral - and when I slowed to put it in gear - found that third gear has dissapeared - Shifts fine to all other gears - but rhird is missing !!?? My mechanic doesn't have a clue - and has not seen this scenario before - says would require pulling motor to have a look - at great expense - and no guarentees -
Anyone have an idea what occured and if it can be fixed - my bike is a circa 92 DR800 with about 75000 klms.
3rd gear has been destroyed probally tore the gears up on it.it not as difficult as your mecanic says.tare the gear box cover off and look inside check for shavings [metal] .or anything that doesnt look rite. could be as simple as a sheard pin.
