Well dude, I love YSR and am a proud owner of one myself. Well be a technician on these types of machines, this could be the problem areas you can try first, In the kick start assembly, it consists of two gears, that are used to turn the engine over, gears may of become warped over time depending on the usage of your bike. Also there is a spring inside there, if the spring breaks and bins up on the kick axle, it would to prevent the bike going into cause the kick starter is always engaged. If you have the right tools and manual for the bike, then disassemble the kickstarter section of the bike and see exactly what he situation is. Here is a brief explosion view of how the kick starter works. Hope this helps you out. http://www.ronniesmailorder.com/fiche_image_popup.asp?fveh=328&section=13489&year=1989&make=YAMAHA&category=Motorcycles&dc=2929&name=STARTER

I have a ysr50 1987 and it will not shift past 2nd gear. I'm sure it's the shift lever but I'm open to any suggestions before I start taking it apart.


Hi, Anonymous 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.
10. Shift drum is broken.
