You have a 99% chance the gearbox will need to be torn down. This sounds like a bent shift fork but it is odd that fifth gear is the problem. Usually it is first or second gear.My 2003 YZ125 is stuck in fifth gear - 0b92939.gif

Stuck in fifth gear


There is a spring inside this gearbox which is located on the shifter pawl that can break causing this. Does your gear lever move fully in both directions? I have seen stones getting lodged between the shifter arm and gear case stopping the lever moving in one direction.

My Yamaha YZ125 doesn't start but it has spark. What can be the problem?


Hi, Ihyo and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enricher.
5. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
6. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
7. Fuel line to the carburetor or throttle body pinched or kinked.
8. Carburetor float stuck.
9. Fuel injectors clogged.
10. Severely discharged or damaged battery you need 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
11. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
12. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and CDI box.
Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting check for leakage in the dark, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
13. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty MAP, CKP, O2, TPS, sensors.
14. Faulty neutral, clutch lever, or kickstand safety switch.
15. Faulty fuel pump or fuse or relay.
16. Faulty CDI box.
17. A stuck bent or burnt valve.
18. Tip over sensor needs a reset.
19. Check for engine trouble codes.

It seems like we broke our Gearbox, the gearstick will just move up and down, not sideways. The car's stuck on 1st Gear.


Maybe, maybe not, lift the gearstick boot, look in press the cluts & try 2 move the stick (don't start engine), or behind the gear box check the levers, if is not, then.... your box needs 2 open.

My dirt bike isn't changing gears


sounds simple, but make sure your shift peg isn't worn at the splines. some times it will pull it to the shift point then it will slip.

Aside from that you have to do the complete tear down to get into the gearcase. check your oil make sure its clean.

Can't change to fifth gear. other gears are fine and engine sounds smooth enough. its a 2003 polo actually, not golf. 1.2, manual, petrol


selector forks on the fifth gear are worn out but don,t let a garage take the gearbox out it can be fixed in place . had the same problem on my golf mk3 vr6 get the parts from a scrap yard should take about half an hour in the right hands to fix
