Hi, Alfred you can try jacking up the rear wheel and rocking the rear wheel back and forth while trying to shift the pedal at the same time an assistant will be necessary to facilitate also for this scenario you will need your service/owners/ manual if you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Yamaha, despair not, for a mere zero $ you can download another one.

1991 Hilux 2.8ltr diesel 5spd Man, stuck in 4th gear, won't budge, clutch still works.


Forth gear is when the input shaft is connected directly to the out put shaft by the sliding dog. 2 possible reasons 1 the pall that holds the selector shaft in position is jammed from possibly a broken spring ( remove the plug in the side/top of the box if you have one) or the connecting dog has broken a synchro ring and this is not allowing it to move back. It is possible that the inter connecting pin that prevents too shafts from moving at the same time is stuck as well.

1994 virago 1100. Starter spins but wont turnover motor.


Hi, Manuelverdin the starter drive/Bendix/clutch is a mechanical gear driven component that engages the clutch pack ring gear to turn over the engine. It has an internal mechanism that allows the gear to turn in one direction and once the engine starts allows the drive gear to free spin. If gear free spins in both directions then the drive gear has failed, it is not serviceable and needs to be replaced.

Yamaha 1986 virago 1100 stuck in 2nd gear


Hi, Driverusx and the usual suspects are:
1. Clutch not disengaging.
2. Bent shift shaft.
3. Shift fork bent or seized.
4. Gear seized on the shaft.
5. Gear positioning lever binding.
6. Shift return springs weak or broken.
7. Shift return spring pin loose
8. Shift mechanism arm spring is broken.
9. Shift mechanism arm is broken.
10. Shift drum is broken.

HAVE A VIRAGO 1100 AND THE GEAR SHIFTER STICKS IN


hi,2 possible causes,1-if the bike has remote linkages to the gear shift,check that the shaft that the gear lever itself is pivoted on,is well lubricated and moves freely,they sometimes have a habit of filling  with road grime over time and this will cause them to stick or become quite heavy in operation,2-and this requires removal of the crankcase cover to repair,the return spring on the shift drum has lost its strength and needs replacing,i hope that it is the first option as that is easy to fix,the second option not quite so easy and a lot more expensive if you have to have it done in a shop..hope this helps...cheeers

Clucth not disengauging....


try this.you have 2 shifter cables.one is select cable the other is shift cable.first put the transmission selector lever in neutral.then move transmission shift lever to 4th gear.depress clutch to if necessary to shift.move the shift lever to the 4th gear position until contacts stop.then you turn the adjuster turn buckle so the shift cable eye aligns with the eye in the gear shift lever.when installing the cable eye. make sure the flange side of plastic bushing at the shift cable end is on the cotter pin side.the cables should be adjusted so the clearance between the shift lever and both stoppers are equal when the shift lever is moved to 3rd and 4th gear. move the shift lever to each position and check that the shifting is smooth.
