2005 yamaha ttr-125 will shift into 1st and neutral fine but will not shift into any other gears.

Hi, Fmarules 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.

Measuring the windings resistance won't tell you if the motor is seized. Measure the current draw when it tries to start. If it has a capacitor start, check the capacitance is good. If it hasn't got a capacitor start, suspect the compressor is seized. You can try cooling it down for 24 hours and seeing if it will run again as the tolerances these days are extremely marginal. However, if it has seized once, it will probably do it again next time it gets too hot.

How do I remove the gudgeon pin from my kawasaki kx 125 1983?

There are 2 circlips (1 on either side that need to be removed first. Then you can either use the special tool available in most tool shops or a bolt and 2 washers and piece of pipe, one washer must be smaller than the outside diameter of the gudgeon pin and the other must be bigger than the pipe. The pipe must have an inside diameter that allows the gudgoen to be pulled through it. You slide the bolt through the large washer then the pipe and then the gudgeon pin hole, then the small washer and then put a nut on the bolt that is slightly smaller thann the washer so it doesn't score the piston as you wind it and the gudgeon pin through the piston and into the pipe.

With the cylinder still off, your connecting rod should move left to right a little, but not up and down. Be careful doing this to hold the crank to check for rod bearing wear. Also, see how the crank turns, the two main bearings for the crank need to be smooth to the feel.
