Since the shifting was okay prior to splitting the cas, chances are one or both of the positioning pins fell out. If this happened, the cases are not lined up correctly.

Kx 85 is only selecting first gear how can I fix it

Selector shaft is worn or has come away from the selector barrel which changes the gears. It's an easy enough fix, you will need to remove the right-hand side engine casing. When you have this off, get someone to move the gear selector up & down while you look behind the clutch to the left to see if the shaft has popped away from the barrel or is possibly worn out.

Why dont i have 5th gear on my 1996 Kawazx6r

There's something wrong or damaged in the selectors. Get a manual and see how easy it is to access the selectors, it varies from make to make, you may find you only have to get inside the outer cases to replace a part of the shifter and its no great drama.

2005 pt cruiser, stuck in 5th gear

Check the gear linkage cable (very common problem) look down inside engine bay towards top of bell case (thats where the linkage meets with selector arm. Get someone to wiggle the gear stick while you observe selector arm. (if you move the air box out of the way you can reach down and de-select the gear with your hand- should get you neutral at least)... I'll keep an eye out for any reply...

I am having trouble trying to split my engine case. I'm am trying to split the magneto side, I have all bolts out that I can see but still it won't come off, is there something inside the other side of the...

I don't know what has not been removed so pardon me if I suggest something already removed. Remove the cylinder, intake manifold, magneto, stator, sprocket and shift lever. A case splitter is highly recommended. They don't cost that much and it makes for a clean separation. The two positioning guides will tend to hamper separation as will the crankshaft and output shaft as they slide through the bearings. That's another reason for a case splitter. Now would be a good time for new crank and output shaft bearings and seals and a new shift shaft seal. I assume the reason for the teardown is either a bent shift fork or broken gear teeth. If replacing a gear with a broken tooth or two, also replace any gears the broken gear meshes with. If you don't, you will get to do the gear repair a second time very soon after the first ride. Whatever pressure broke the teeth on one gear was also present on the meshing gear. It may look good, but it isn't. Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks.

Gear shift moves up and down wont select gears . gear shift is not lose on the sharft .thanks

You have an internal problem with the shift mechanism.You will need to remove the clutch cover to identify what is broken.It is rare that you can't fix a problem such as this from behind the clutch cover.(ie no need to split the crankcase).pull of the clutch cover & look to see if when you try to select gears if the selector drum turns. It should then be apperent what has gone wrong.(circlip fallen off,selector drum actuator or spring broken)
If you find something broken you need to find all broken pieces before it goes back together so it/they don't find there way into the gearbox or BANG your gearbox will go.
Hope this helps

Unable to select lower gears on downshift

The bike has a bent shift fork or two. This is a MAJOR repair and best done by a knowing mechanic.
The motor comes out of the bike then turned upside down for removal of the bottom case. The clutch, shift shaft, flywheel, electrics, gears and gear shafts gotta come out so you can get to the bad fork. There's much more but the idea is that you are better off having the shop do the repair unless you have experience, are extremely mechanically inclined, and have the tools. The bad news is that a shop is going to charge around $1200 to $1500 for the repair. Some shop mechanics also repair bikes at home. If you find one, you can save $200 to $400 or so. Sorry to be the one to give you the bad news. The diagram below shows how a shift fork moves a slider gear left and right to engage different gears. A bent fork will not fully engage a gear.

1999 ford galaxy auto.i have trouble when use the

hi farhad371, speaking from experiance this is how my Galaxy started playing up, first off you can look down and see the gear selector linkage whilst someone moves the gear selector back and forth, you will able to see if the selector is moving in and out externaly, secondly get the oil level checked, i have done these in the past but they are a pain with out a ramp and temp guage, the oil needs to be at running temp and deadlevel, to much oil they dont like and not enough they don't like, this will cost about £25 for a garage to check. i did all the above, it work for about 1000 then started again, and lost 5th gear as well, reverese and 5th are on the same shaft in the gearbox, unfortunatly its a recon box then which cost about 2k. you can take a risk on a s/h auto but you may be getting another dodgy one, if you can get a manual box s/h that would be your best bet if all else fails. hopefully your problem will be simple, good luke.

1990 Suzuki Escudo 4 wheel drive

As far as I know the procedure should go something like this...

Stop the vehicle, engage the parking brake and if applicable, get out and turn the hubs on the front wheels from Free, to Lock.(You may not have these on a Suzuki, they may be auto-lockers)

Get back in the vehicle and put the transmission shift selector into Neutral.

If you have a manual transfer case, move the selector-shaft to 4x4-High, or 4x4-Low -- whichever is desired. Now, putting the vehicle in gear with the transfer case is sometimes somewhat difficult. As long as the vehicle's transmission is in neutral, don't worry, the gears inside the transfer case are big and beefy -- Don't be afraid to be rough -- Again as long as the transmission is in neutral. You may also have to disengage the parking brake and slightly let the vehicle roll forward or back with your foot-brake to get the Transfer case to lock into place.

Once 4x4 of the selected High, Or Low range is selected, usually indicated by the vehicle jerking slightly with a slightly loud clank/thud. Move the Transmission selector out of neutral into your desired gear (Drive if Automatic, if Manual, whichever gear you pull out from). and voila! You should now be in 4-Wheel-Drive.

To disengage 4-Wheel-Drive. Just reverse the steps.
