Question about 1982 Yamaha XJ 650
Yamaha XJ650J. Transmission is stuck in first gear. Can't get it into neutral. It has 80,000 miles on it but I never banged through the gears hard. Bent shifter fork or ?
You got it, bent shift fork. I think the manufacturers make them weak just to keep dealer service
departments in business. This is a pretty major repair.
A “very helpful” rating on this answer? Thanks!
