Remove the right case cover, then remove the clutch. Disassemble the shift stopper wheel assembly then pull the shaft out of the right center case. If you have bent or broken the shaft it may be necessary to cut and or grind the end of the shaft so that the bend in the shaft will slide out through the case halves. You can download a free factory service manual at the site below. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

My gear select shaft on my gsf1200 Suzuki bandit has pushed in too far to get the circling back on and I can't select gears

yes a bit of a job
a repair manual would help a lot
this is what you cant see
the shaft goes to the other side of the bike
you should be able to undo exterior engine covers
and sort out the shift shaft problem

I need to replace the Beveled Gear for my Pro 600 mixer. it seemed an easy task. However, I am stuck in removing the Beveled gear. I cannot remove it after removing the retaining ring. help pls.

If you have the gear cases apart and the bevel gear exposed then you just push the planetary shaft up through the middle of the bevel gear. You will see that the shaft is driven by the gear via a loose fitting pin through the shaft. Pull the pin out (with fingers) and then the bevel gear will lift up off the shaft without the need to fully remove the shaft. Note the fibre spacer/thrust washer under the bevel gear between the bottom case and gear, don't lose it.

Kx 85 is only selecting first gear how can I fix it

Selector shaft is worn or has come away from the selector barrel which changes the gears. It's an easy enough fix, you will need to remove the right-hand side engine casing. When you have this off, get someone to move the gear selector up & down while you look behind the clutch to the left to see if the shaft has popped away from the barrel or is possibly worn out.

After putting in a clutch, main tranny shaft bearing and counter shaft bearing, truck is back together and stuck in a high gear

Make sure you replace the thrust bearings (shims) as otherwise it will not select the correct gear or jam and select 1st and 3rd at the same time!.

Most likely cause of not selecting a single gear is a bent shift fork.
Shift forks in motorcycles are what pushes the gears in and out on the shaft to engage them. Rough shifting or missing gears can sometimes cause them to bend.
Replacing them, however, requires removing and completely re-building the engine as the shift forks are right inside.
Alternatively it could be a damaged shift drum, but again it's a case of remove engine, split motor in half and have a look.
For a look at the gearbox itself, go to
and select 'Transmission' and 'Shift Drum/Fork'

Problems selecting 1st gear peugeot 106 1.1 zest

If the clutch is a problem you will have difficulty selecting 1st only as the gears would be spinning from the engine revs.. I would say that the front input shaft (clutch shaft) bearing is failing allowing miss alignment of the synchros and not allowing proper engagement of the gears synchro rings. It means removal and repair to the gear box so the clutch can be inspected while the box is out.

The easiest way to get into the gear box, broke my gear lever on a rock and the gears are not engaging as they should

It sounds like you have bent the gear shaft.
Remove the right hand side engine cover, and probably the clutch as well. The gear shaft can then be unhooked from the selecter drum and pushed out,(the shaft goes right through the engine), this may be dificult if the gear stick end is very bent,when its removed dont try to straighten it, get a new one, and a new seal and rhs gasket. 2006 ?probably old enough to fit a new water pump seal while the cover is off
