I bought a 2006 wr450 about 3 weeks ago. When I picked it up I noticed it was a little difficult to get in to neutral I did not think much about it I figured it was just new and a little rough around the edges. The first ride out was spent jetting and setting up the suspension. After 3 rides the neutral problem was not getting better so I took it back to the dealer. After inspection the shop manager and mechanic told me the shift shaft was bent and it was a rider era. (some one landed on the shifter after a jump). I have been ridding for 30 year and I would know if I landed on the shifter. Has any one experienced similar problems? Is it possible to bend the shaft with the aluminum shifter.
