2013 RMZ 450 Neutral Drags

Recommended Posts

Hey so I just rebuilt my 2013 RMZ450 from the ground up, had every bolt apart. I put the trans together and tested it and everything seemed fine. Put the bike together and ride it now and it feels as if neutral is dragging really badly. I checked the clutch setup and everything seemed fine. I pulled the countershaft seal and that seems fine as well, any ideas as to what's gone wrong here? I also found alot of metal shavings :(

Difficulties with neutral are generally attributed to a poorly setup clutch free play.. or in a worst case scenario, it could indicate a bent shift fork.

For the metal shavings, I would pull and clean the strainers (both), replace the filter/oil then ride it for a few hours.  Then pull and change everything again seeing if the motor is still producing shavings.  Seeing a few shavings after a fresh rebuild isn't uncommon, so long as the motor isn't continuing to produce them.
