KX85 Shifting Problem

Recommended Posts

Got my son a 2001 KX85. The problem is that nutural is huge. It is hard to get it into 1st, and sometimes to start off, you have to shift to 2nd then down to 1st inorder to get it into gear. When riding, going from 2nd to 1st you almost always hits nutural. Going from 1st to 2nd is not as bad.

I changed the oil and it did not help out. So is this a shift fork, or drum? Do I need to split the cases to fix this?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Souns like the shift star may be worn, but bent dogs or worn drum could also be the culprit. The item I am talking about is 13091 in the fiche:

The you can get to the shift star under the clutch basket. To get the other parts you need to split the cases.

Thanks for the help, that would be great if it is the star. Looks like my son and I have a project after work.

He is 11 and just loves it.
