Your clutch most likely is getting weak, replace the clutch plates and friction disks they come together as a pair pack, you need to drain the oil remove the clutch cover on the side of the motor and then remove center nut and using a hook tool unhook the 4, 5 or 6 springs that hold the clutch pack together they are pretty tough to remove and if you are not fairly mechanically inclined there may be issues with tools and skill sets. I hope you can replace the clutch pack yourself you will save $100.00 + if you can. Remeber to carefully put the plates in order as you disassemble the clutch, lay the parts out on a clean towel or rag in the order they come out and put the replacement parts in the same exact way an order the old ones came out, the challenge is to reattach the springs they can be quite achallenge here's a pointer use a pair of needle nose vise gripes to clamp hold of the spring ends and connect them to the cover plateon the outer clutch pack assembly.

I would check to see if the fluid is low, and replace it with Honda manual transmission fluid first. Honda manual transmissions originally used engine oil, never gear oil, then Honda came out with manual trans fluid. Either would work, but the Honda manual fluid would be better.

By chain sound do you mean a metalic rattle when you ride off?
I will assume that is not making that sound at idle. It could be that your cam chain has stretched and needs to either be replaced or tensioned.

If it is a pinking sound, sort of like someone tapping on a tin can with a coin. Then that is most likely preignition which isn't good for your engine. Why octane/RON fuel do you use?

Yz 250 2008 possible 5th gear stripped, or shifting fork bent?


Do an oil change. If the gear were stripped there will be lots of metal particles in the oil. More than likely the fork is slightly bent such that the slider for fifth gear is just barely engaging. Put pressure on it by increased throttle and it pops out.

Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock.
