Question about 1990 Yamaha XT 600 E

Motorcycle: Difficulty changing up to 2nd gear and neutral

Sometimes it's difficult to change up into 2nd gear from first. Sometimes it's easy. Sometimes it's difficult to find neutral - other times not. All other gears feel fine.
Model isn't really an 1990 XT600E, it's really a 1989 XT600

One thing, check your gear selector, sometimes if that sharp edge is rounded out, worn out from usage, your gears may either slip, or wont wove at all.

I have Honda V65 magna motorcycle it pops out of second gear


The reason for that problem is damage to the drive dogs on the 2nd drive and driven gear.they have 90° edges on them and if they wear (usually from bad gear changes) they throw each other apart and shoot out to neutral in the case of 2nd.so there clarify to fix it you need to be able the engine out and split the cases to get the gearbox out and change the damaged gears.

Only have 2nd gear


Check the linkage firs if it is in the right place then you will need to rebuild the trans or get a new one as the bands are gone in it. Try to change the fluids and filter first. But from the sounds of it i would say the bands are gone and it needs a new trans.

Problems selecting 1st gear peugeot 106 1.1 zest


If the clutch is a problem you will have difficulty selecting 1st only as the gears would be spinning from the engine revs.. I would say that the front input shaft (clutch shaft) bearing is failing allowing miss alignment of the synchros and not allowing proper engagement of the gears synchro rings. It means removal and repair to the gear box so the clutch can be inspected while the box is out.

My 2004 audi s4 makes gronchy noise when i put it in to 2nd gear when cold whats causing it?


If I've understood your problem correctly.....when changing from 1st gear into second the box is giving a metal on metal crunching sound?
  • This would be the syncromesh ring which is not equalizing the speed correctly.
  • The problem usually happens when there is wear on the same part.
  • Check to make sure that the correct transmission fluid has been used in the box.
  • To alleviate the problem and delay the time when it will require attention, use the double de- clutch method of changing gears, especially when the transmission is cold.
  • The double de-clutch is carried out in the following way.
  1. When in gear and changing from 1st gear to 2nd, change into neutral and release the clutch and then depress again before selecting 2nd gear....It is not required to rev the engine in the neutral position when changing up....
  2. When changing down rev the engine when the shift lever is in neutral for each change.
You'll soon get the hang of it and stop the crunching sound, protecting the box at the same time....
