Question about 1986 Yamaha RD 350

1986 yamaha big bear 350 cc will shift up but will

1986 yamaha big bear 350 cc 4x4 will shift up but will not shift down. It is now stuck in 6th gear and will not come out of this gear. This also stops it from starting anymore. Is there a common problem, silpler fix or is more likely that the transmission has to be completely stripped down to locate and fix the problem.

Its most likely to be the external part of the shift mechanism & therefore it would not need the transmission stripped
It is probably just 1 of the springs on the shift claw that is broken - this explains why it only shifts 1 way

Gear shaft


If you are trying to change the boot over the U joint at the swing arm, you don't need to remove any shaft to do that. You do however have to remove the swing arm.
