Question about 2001 Honda XR 650 R
I have a Honda XR650R 2001 in nuatural it keeps trying to lock up.As you roll it it keeps trying to catch something in the gaear box, douse anyone know what is going on?
You have a bent shift fork not positioning the slider gear fully into neutral. The engine will need to come out of the bike. Remove the top end, the flywheel and electrics, the clutch, shift mechanism and kick starter and a few other parts. THEN you are ready to split the gearbox to get to the crankshaft, gears and shift forks.
You will need an impact driver, flywheel puller, case splitter, torque wrench and factory service manual, plus the normal screwdriver, pliers, etc.. Alternate to the special tools is taking it to the dealer. I normally tell people to take it to the shop just so they don't get into such an involved project and they have a knowing eye working on the engine. The diagram below shows how a shift fork moves a slider gear left and right to change gears. A slightly bent shift fork is not letting the slider gear "dogs" fully dis-engage 1st gear.
