Have a Kawasaki KX20G bike for my daughter, the shifting mechanism is extremely difficut to operate (it's the version that shifts with wrist action). I have tried to lubricate the components, but not much improvement. Any suggestions?

The shifter cables can get rusty or gunky, too. Any friction inside the shifter housing is bad news.

Google "lubricate shifter cables"

125cc Kawasaki dirt bike, cranks on first kick, idles but won't run in any gear, doesn't die out but doesn't seem to engage gear, possible problems?


Does it jerk forward when you put it into gear and die? Or you put it into gear and the bike doesn't move when you let the clutch out? Badly adjusted clutch in both cases. Worst case, you need new clutch plates and springs.

I've got a 1996 Kawasaki ZX6R. The bike runs great. However, it will shift down into first gear, but won't shift up past neutral. Any thoughts? Thanks, Lance


The bike has a bent shift fork. The engine must come out then gets flipped upside down to remove the bottom half of the crankcase. This allows access to the gears and shift forks. The repair is not recommended for the home mechanic. Please rate my answer. Thanks. tombones49_211.gif

Hi! I just bougt the used bike a few days ago!! when i shift in 2nd and third gear, it's noisy and make a clunk as a ratchet!! I need to know what are the different kind of problem??? to fix it!! ...


It sounds like a slightly bent shift fork and / or a broken gear tooth or two. Getting to the shift forks and gears is a pretty major undertaking and the repair is not recommended for the novice mechanic. Your best bet is to take the bike to a dealer and let a mechanic make a determination as to the problem. Transmission repairs are somewhat expensive. A single cylinder bike may cost $750 or so to fix. A four cylinder is more likely to be in the $1700+ range.

1999 zx9r will not shift pass neutral


You have a bent shift fork.

You will need an impact driver, flywheel puller, case splitter and torque wrench plus the normal screwdriver, pliers, etc.. Alternate to the special tools is taking it to the dealer and say "Fix it". I often tell people to take it to the shop just so they don't get into such an involved project.


The motor comes out of the bike then turned upside down for removal of the bottom case. The clutch, shift shaft, flywheel, electrics, gears and gear shafts gotta come out so you can get to the bad fork. There's much more but the idea is that you are better off having the shop do the repair unless you have experience, are extremely mechanically inclined, and have the tools. The bad news is that a shop is going to charge around $1200 for the repair. Some shop mechanics also repair bikes at home. If you find one, you can save $200 to $400 or so. I include a diagram to give you an idea of how the shift drum moves the forks left and right to change gears. Please rate my answer.

In shifting though gears, with bike running and stationary, after shifting in to first gear hard to shift into neutral without tuning off power to bike.


The bike has a slightly bent shift fork. The repair is a pretty major operation and I don't recommend the casual mechanic attempt it. Below is a diagram showing how the shift drum moves slider gears for different gear changes. Please rate my answer. Thanks. tombones49_128.gif

I have a Kawasaki zx550A1 (GPz550), it shifts into 1st and 2nd just fine but won't shift any higher. It's almost like there is no more gears.


The bike has a bent shift fork in the transmission. You describe the classic symptoms. The engine will have to come out of the frame. Then it gets flipped upside down, right and left side covers, shift shaft, and other components are removed, then the bottom half of the gearbox is removed. This allows access to the shift drum and shift forks. There are some special tools needed and I don't recommend a novice mechanic tackles the job. Below is a diagram of how the shift drum moves the shift forks left and right to make a slider gear engage different gears. Please rate my answer. Thanks. tombones49_119.gif

Hello and thanks for the question.
Keep in mind that Kawasaki has a lock out in the transmission that will not let the bike into second gear unless the bike is moving at least 15-20 mph. It will not shift into second gear while the bike is sitting still. If the bike is moving at that speed the lock out becomes inoperative. If you are riding the bike and it does not shift, you have a problem with the shift mechanism or in the transmission itself.

The shift mechanism is serviceable by removing the clutch assembly. The transmission requires major engine dissasembly and should be performed by a qualified technician.

Thanks and I hope that this helps,
Steve
