Question about 1977 Suzuki GS 750
I have a 1979 Suzuki gs750 I am curious on how to replace a bent shift fork I don't know if that is the problem I just figure I should start somewhere. Here is my problem it will go into first but it is very dificult and you have to tap tap tap then it will shift to second fine but third is hard to get into like first if it goes at all it will not go into fourth or fitb at all any other ideas or help would be appreciated thanks
This may be a shift fork issue but from a experience i have had that was very similar the issue was resolved by replacing the shifter shaft. In my case the same hard first gear and missed 2 3 4 and 5 the gear shifts. The shifter shaft has a paw assembly on the end just under the clutch hub and it has worn over time. Finaly it stoped shifting all together. The mechanic stated it was most likely from a lot of low speed use (traffic ect) In the end it was a easy fix that did not require the engine to be removed and only minor tear down. A reptuble shop should be able to diagnosis and repair. Just dont go in and ask for a fork replacement. A shop with not the best reptuation will do the job you ask for and then the job you actualy need. find a good shop and pay them for a diagnosis. dealers are more expensive but have saved me a lot on money in the long run

To replace the shift fork or forks you will need to remove the engine from the frame and lower engine crankcase if you are not accustomed to doing a job like this take it to a motorcycle mechanic or at least get the tools you will need and a service manual.
