2002 Yamaha R1 shifting problem

I ahve a 2002 Yamaha R1 and notice that at times when shifting into 4th or fifth gear it doesnt always engage properly and you have to shift it again to get it to engage. Anyone else have this problem or know what it probably is?

Sounds like your clutch plates are worn or theres not enough gear oil which is making it hard to engage while at running temperture

The bike has a bent shift fork in the transmission. You describe the classic symptoms. The engine will have to come out of the frame. Then it gets flipped upside down, right and left side covers, shift shaft, and other components are removed, then the bottom half of the gearbox is removed. This allows access to the shift drum and shift forks. There are some special tools needed and I don't recommend a novice mechanic tackles the job. Below is a diagram of how the shift drum moves the shift forks left and right to make a slider gear engage different gears. Please rate my answer. Thanks. tombones49_116.gif

you may have a shaft key broken in the transmission. 4th is usually 1-1 drive and does not need the key. before removing the transmission, check to make sure the linkage is OK by shifting gears at the transmission. If you can get other gears at the transmission, then the problem is the shifter.

GEAR SHIFTING CAMRY 2004 2.4 XLI


Hi,

This might be because of the gear box problem. By any chance, did your car face flooding? In such cases, please drain the gear box and replace it with new gear fluids. Also, check if you go in low speeds, you might be able to engage it with ease. Please come back to me if you feel this doesnt solve your issue.

Regards,
Hari

Well, it seems like there is a problem with the shift return spring; it's on the backend of the gear, Seems broken or not attached properly, so first of all do this check.

2nd gear does not work on my Yamaha Virago xv250


Sounds like a slightly bent shift fork. The slider gear isn't quite engaging into 2nd. If the bend gets worse then you won't get into first and the pedal will get real stiff in those gears. The repair is best done in the shop.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!
