XR200R play in shifter shaft

Recommended Posts

I'm working on a 2001 XR200R for a customer. The shifter shaft was bent so I got a replacement. The problem I'm running into is that there is so much side to side play that, unless I pull the lever/shaft all the way to the left, it won't engage the shift star. Any ideas as to what's going on and how to fix it?

The side cover holds the shaft in place. There are 3 different shift shaft part numbers and 5 different side cover part numbers but I don't know what the differences are as I've always used the shaft that came with the cases.

i agree with chuck to an extent -- i only find one part number for the shaft -- but anyway -- the clutch cover when installed has a protrusion inside which holds the shaft over so all the mechanism is in the proper place --
