Sounds like it needs to be split.
You could have a bent shift fork, or worn shift drum. This is not a "simple" job.
I've also seen where gears mesh chewed up or rounded off.
Get it opened up!

When i pull my clutch lever in, it doesnt engage the clutch

First thing is to make sure you don't have motor oil in the engine. Wet clutches and motor oil are not compatible. Use only the oil sold at motor cycle shops. Do that before tearing into the engine or making any radical adjustments. Good Luck -Ned-

Thrid gear in my yz 250 2001 seems to be slipping

For confirmation of a broken third gear tooth, drive slowly and shift up to third gear. Give the throttle a gentle rotation to slowly speed up. Listen for clunking sounds from the gearbox. If you hear it then you know there is a broken tooth. ALWAYS replace the gears in sets. If enough pressure was on a gear to break of a tooth then the same pressure was on the gear it was engaged into. Yes, only one of the two gears is missing a tooth but the other gear has a cracked tooth just ready to break as soon as you button up the engine after replacing only the toothless gear.

I am a bit removed from the cost of todays repairs so I suggest you give a call to your local dealer. If I had to guess, I would say about $600.00. Sorry for the bad news.

Yz 250 2008 possible 5th gear stripped?

I doubt that any gears are stripped. Believe me you would have known it when it happened at 40mph which is where you would have to be in 5th gear. This is a bent shift fork. The actual gear is fine. The slider gear is not moving far enough to engage with 5th gear. The YZ does tend to have this problem in 5th and 1st. "Dirt rider Magazine " did a story on it. Best to let the shop do the repair as the entire motor gets torn down into about 100 parts.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!
