Question about 2005 Yamaha TT-R 125 L

1 Answer

2005 TTR 125 will not shift into first gear Hello, I have a 2005 ttr125 that was shifting fine. We replaced the clutch plates and springs, oil and air filter. After we did this, I'm having trouble getting it into first gear and neutral. If I hold the shifter down with my foot and slowly let out the clutch it will go into first and ride OK. All other gears seem to be shifting fine. Is this an adjustment somewhere? The shift lever is somewhat loose, not extremely loose, but about 1/2 inch of play. Could this be it? My other thought was that it had something to do with the screw adjuster in the middle of the pressure plate on the clutch? Any ideas?

    Hello Mxtras, thanks for the reply. If I pull in the clutch and hold my foot on the shifter pushing down it will go into first gear. While holding my foot on the shifter I can let the clutch out and ride around in first gear. Once I take off I can let my foot off the shifter and it stays in first, but the shifter stays down, it doesn't come back up like it typically would with a smooth shift.

    I just ordered a new 17.5 pilot jet for it as it doesn't idle due to the previous owner removing the baffle. I ordered a billet tip for it.

    When replacing the clutch I stripped a pressure plate spring bolt and had to replace with another from the hardware store. The bolt was almost identical, but the washer was slightly less thick.

    My fear is that 1st gear broke some teeth off and I'll need to split the cases. Hoping that this is not the problem... It would be a coincidence if it were seeing it was fine pre clutch, and not fine post clutch.

This is one of those issues that is really tricky to diagnose over the net but would likely take a few minutes to diagnose in person.

When it does drop into gear, does it jump or stall? Will it idle in gear, stopped with the clutch pulled in?

My initial thought is that the clutch is not being fully released (the plates are still in firm contact with eachother).

More than likely, the resolution is a fairly simple adjustment.

Clutch problem...?


Hi Amiralred, I believe the problem is to be found with the clutch plate and most likely to do with a defective center boss. When it is removed I believe you will find that one or more of the torque absorption spring has broken and possibly the center boss. A good idea with clutch plates, is to use original replacement parts if possible. Regards John

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.
6. Shift return springs weak or broken.
7. Shift return spring pin loose
8. Shift mechanism arm spring is broken.
9. Shift mechanism arm is broken.

Whenever I shift (at a stop) from neutral to first the whole bike either shifts/jolts or occasionally grinds the gears. The clutch is fully depressed when doing so. Thoughts on how to fix or what is...


Your idle may be set too high . 800 to 1000 RPM should be about right. That can cause problems shifting from a stopped position.You may have the wrong oil in your cycle . Do not use car oil or any oil that says Energy Conserving on the label . It will shorten the life of your wet clutch and transmission gears. Use oil that has the JASO MA certification on the label. 10w-40 cold climate or 20w-50 hot climate. A synthetic oil will help you run cooler and shift easier in hot weather conditions and under all conditions. One other thing to check is your clutch plates , if the bike sat for a number of years, the clutch plates could be stuck together. Take off the clutch cover , take off the springs, take off the clutch pressure plate, and pull all the plates out. Carefully separate the plates, replace any scored or burnt plates , rub oil on all the surfaces, and put them back in. This will make the clutch work smoothly if the plates were causing the problems.

The bike will not shift into gear. The clutch has plenty of spring tension just will not engage


if the bike has been sitting for a while the clutch plates can stick together, you will still feel spring tension from the pressure plate. two ways to free it up.
with the engine stopped click it up into top gear, put the front wheel against a wall, pull in the clutch, and push on the kick start, or push start it in gear, pull in the clutch and vary the throttle .
Change the oil after the ride with good motorcycle engine oil.

Got a 02' 125 ttr and it make a knocking noise in first gear? shifts fine and no other noise in other gears.


You have a broken tooth on the first gear set. This means two gears will need replaced; the drive gear and the driven gear in first gear range. DON'T just replace the gear with the broken tooth. Replace the gear it meshes with also.
