Chain guide snapped, chain bunched, cracked left case- shift shaft removal

So I sold my friend my 250, first ride he hit a rock, it rippen of the guide, the chain fell off the rear sprocket and piled up on top of the shifter and broke it out the bottom of the case. We went to some case welding specialist and they said they can weld it no problem, if we can get the shift shaft out to ensure its not bent.

No you have to split the cases to get the shaft out or can we remove the clutch basket and access a clip of some kind? Anyone done this? thanks

i know on my 125 you had to split the case to get to the shift shaft

You probably won't need to split the cases. Giving us the year of the bike would help; 2010-2013 would not need the cases split.

Sorry, I posted from my cell in the garage. 2004 crf250r

You don't need to split the cases... But, the right side cover and clutch basket components do need to be removed. I would buy or download a manual, as the shift drum has a few small components on top of it that easily pop out of place and can be tricky to get back together properly
