You have a bent shift fork, it will need to have the case split.

My yamaha yzf600r is stuck in second gear and it want gear down or up i have no clue what it is?


Most likely you have one or more bent shift forks which unfortunately takes a full tear-down to repair and is not a job for an everyday DIY mechanic because you basically have to disassemble the entire bike. plastics, engine out, disassemble engine etc.

I don't make youtube videos but I watched this one and the guy is pretty thorough........https://youtu.be/1Tdo8rFeBgg

The third select button will not stop down


I have a model 464 and my problem was similar but mine was the second digit.
I replaced the p c board in the selection control box and my problem was gone.
I would check the selection control box.
Hope this helps

1986 yz125


basically that problem comes from "banging" gears. that bike is 23 years old.its likely the shifting forks are bent to the point of just getting it into 2nd. only fix is to replace them. if they havent been replaced since the bike was new, its outstanding its only starting now. beware, if not replaced soon, its possible you may end up losing your 2nd gear. hope this helps..
