Sounds like you already know the problem. Find someone who can rebuild the transmission in it.

remove clutch cover and look if you can see the selecter shift arm isnt bent or broken ! they normally have a hook at each end and as you shift up or down it moves the selecter barrel ! they do bend/wear/snap !

Change gear oil 1981


Drain is on the bottom of the drive shaft. Fill is on the side of the drive shaft. Fill the shaft drive assembly to the bottom of the threads of the fill hole. Takes about 200-300ml.

How do you get a 1992 yamaha xj600 out of gear and into neutral? clutch is depressed and hitting shifter pedal still wont show neutral light or allow to start


Hi, Remington_mo try rocking the bike back and forth and the usual suspects are:
1. Clutch not disengaging.
2. Bent shift shaft.
3. Shift fork bent or seized.
4. Gear seized on the shaft.
5. Gear positioning lever binding.
6. Shift return springs weak or broken.
7. Shift return spring pin loose
8. Shift mechanism arm spring is broken.
9. Shift mechanism arm is broken.
10. Shift drum is broken.

I wanted to know how to turn down the idle on my 1981 XJ 650 Maxim. Every time I come to a stop in first gear the engine races. At first I thought it was the choke. I don't know anything about motorcycle...


hello
if you were to look upward under the carbs, about center between the middle two carbs you should notice a screw with a larger head on it. this is the idle adjusting screw. hope this helps.
