I have a Yzfr1 with a noise coming from the gearbox area how do I get it fixed.

My dealer has said they know it isn't a clutch problem and without a engine removal and complete strip down of the gearbox they cannot guarantee what the problem is

Get it checked out ASAP. I have an 06 R1 and had some major issues. This is what happened....I was on 95 south bound in CT. My bike started making a funny noise out of the muffler. I let off the gas and went from 65 to 110mph. hit the brake and got nothing. Hit the clutch and the combustion shut down. Let go of the clutch gave it gas and it started again. I dropped down to 45 had smoke out of the exhaust and I got off exit 11. I saw fluid out of the exhaust and it felt and smelt like oil. Gear box or something else (stuck throttle). I won't know until I take it apart.

My 2008 auto box in my Mazda BT 50 is dropping in out of gears. I have asked around and people are saying in excess of $3000 to fix.

run the fault codes first to determine if the problem is electronic ( servos, solenoids , wiring and connections or TCM
it could be a coincidence about the noise in the transmission area so leave the new transmission out of the equation until all the possibilities are covered
has the transmission oil been change lately
drop the pan of the transmission and check for foreign material in the pan and filter
if you have something major , there will be evidence in that area

Why doesnt my car go in reverse the reverse lights go on and it kicks but no movement

if you have an automatic gear box , then it is very possible that you have reverse band is broken inside gear box , , light will come on because switch for reverse lights may be actuated by shift lever not gears .

there is a foward band and reverse band in auto gerabox's so if you are able to drive forward this gearbox will need to be repaired or replaced .

if manual gearbox , you may find a reverse linkage loose , or gears dammaged in gear box .
good luck hope this helps
