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"

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

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.
