06 yz450 transmision problem?

Recommended Posts

i got a 06 yz450f in the garage, that is in pieces... i never saw it running i understand that it had transmission problems and it was repaired ... i can see the fresh silicon on the cases. soo i took the top end off since it doesnt have timing chaing and isnt bolted down to inspect it... looks fine , crank and rod look fine... soo im running it trought the gears by hand seems ok.. but no neutral !! i cant get it in neutral i have tried 100 times and nothing. down to first even turn the motor a little bit while shifting up, nothing straight to second...

Remove the clutch and have a look at the index wheel and arm.  For one thing, the '06 had a problem with some of the index lever rollers (Yamaha calls it a "stopper lever").  They used a ball bearing instead of a simple roller, and some of the bearings would fall apart:

There can be other problems such as damaged pawl springs, etc., so look the mechanism over.
