Suzuki Savage 650 LS found 4 gears not 5

I just bought a used Suzuki Savage 650LS. It's a nice bike with plenty of power but I only find four gears, not five. I had it up to 65 and was not over-reving. Am I missing something, or do I have a problem?

One down (first), four up.
Unless the box is toast... but you would hear it... it isn't exactly a new model - who knows how hard a life it has had...

The Suzuki Savage didn't add a fifth gear until 1995. Your bike only has four!

2002 suzuki savage


I just bought the same bike. I had to choke it hard to even get it to start. Seemed as if it was running lean. It sputtered under acceleration and would die when I pushed the choke in. My first step I filled the tank the tank with 93 octane gas. This is a high compression motor. After gas swap my bike jumped out of it's skin. No more choking and very smooth through the power band and does not sputter no more. A totally different bike from then

Suzuki Savage 650 LS 4 gears found not 5. I just bought a 2002 Suzuki Savage It runs great, plenty of power but I can't find 5 gears only 4. I've had it to 65 and had no over-reving. Am I missing...


Your bike has a fifth gear. The problem is probably a bent shift fork. Broken engagement dogs could be present but I have never seen that happen in anything other than 1st and second gear. This is approximately an $800 to $1000.00 repair. Personally, I really like only having to shift 4 gears. Don't you?

Below is a partial image of your trannie and also a generic image showing how a slider gear moves left and right when pushed by a shift fork. In this example the gear dogs engage into either 1st gear or 2nd gear depending on which way the fork moves the slider gear. If the fork were bent, the slider may go into second gear but not have enough movement to reach first gear. If the gear dogs were broken off then the gear has no way to engage.

I don't get paid for my answers but I do take pride in them, I just try to help where I can. So if you feel it is right, > > A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!
