Desperate for some help

Recommended Posts

I'm really in need of some help now as im pulling my hair out.
I've been slowly restoring a 2008 CRF 450 over a few months but I haven't ridden the bike yet so decided to service it today and go for a quick session on Saturday just to see how it is and disaster has struck.
I removed the transmission drain bolt to drain the oil and when I tried to put it back in it wouldn't go and seem like it wants to pull up and from what I can see with a torch it looks like there's something in the way but the bolt came out!!
Also removed chain and tried to change gears to see if that helps but all it confirmed is in 3rd or doesn't engage just spin like it's in neutral and when it does it stays there and won't come out if gear.
I'm pretty frustrated here after spending literally 100's of hours and pounds on this old girl and now this!

Sounds like it's time to split the cases and inspect it.

I'm hoping it won't come to that as I don't have the willpower any more!

Sounds like It's time to sell It and get a new one. :thumbsup:  Great thing about new Is you know exactly what you have.
