I believe that on these models the retaining clip is internal,and the shaft seats into a bearing at the other end. If the bearing has come apart it will allow the shaft to slide in and out also. Drain and check the fluid for metal or excessive shavings. If it were external, you should be able to see the groove for the clip with the shaft pulled out. Most likely, you're going to have to pull the engine, and split the cases to get to the tranny in order to fix the problem. Pain in the arse, I know, I've done it a few times on my dirt bikes. Assuming this is the DR250 enduro style dirt bike I'm thinking it is. If I'm wrong on the bike type let me know, and I'll see if I can get more info, cause I believe Suzuki also made a DR 250 S in the late 80's or early 90's, which was a sport bike.

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

Why does my RM125 not drive? i start her up pull back clutch leaver and slip it into gear i loose the hand its goes forwards very slowly instead of pulling off normal? whats wrong?

does it fell like its going into gear? if yes,when you let the clutch out does try to move?.This would indicate the clutch was worn out,if it won't go into gear it would mean the cable or clutch were out of adjustment.

Wall-e u comand robot, will not move forward he just turns, can i fix the right wheel?

On the in side of the body (cube) is a white gear the size of a 50cent coin. It is pressed on a drive shaft. The inter ring is cracked and slipping. It makes Wall E turn around and around. I'm looking for a replacement or some one with a makerbot to reproduce it. If any one finds one let me know at.

Gears are stuck

chances are the gear selecter shaft was pushed in when it went over and possibly jammed the selector fork remove the clutch cover and have a look you might get away with just knocking it back into place if nothings been damaged

If you mean the gear selector. Fit it Into position. Remove the Cover from the gear lever, Hold the gear leaver to the left. Place a 6mm Allen Key or Small bladed screw driver in the hole on the left to lock the lever into position. Under the bonnet twist the 'Remote to the right or left(not sure which way). There is a White Pin with a spring on it. This will push in and lock. The gears should the n be set up. Tighten the lock nut on the selector 'Stub' that's on the rear of the gear box and bingo the gear leaver is set.

Gear Selecting

it might be your gears which are worn out and causing gear slips.. but there is high probability of your clutch plates getting spoilt.. the clutch plated work as disengaging the gears shaft to the main engine shaft.. sometimes when the clutch plates are very much use enough..,they stop working and cant retain to disengage the gears.. so first of all get your clutch checked well and then preoceed if it doesn't fix your problem.. heyii there is a shaft coming ut of the engine crank that connects to your transmission shaft which drives your gears and hence wheels.. so your 2nd gear must have worn out and for that reason the gear isn't working well.. get your gear box opened and check the gear..
