Jumps out of gear

Recommended Posts

I have a yz250f 06 and whils at a fast moto track it jumped back to a lower gear on me about 3 times.

i am just wondering is it me not engaging the shifter enough as i dont use the clutch and i was at high revs(just back off the throttle a bit).

Sometimes its reluctant to shift this way at high revs so i hope its just not engaging properly and not a big problem.

Could damage occur to components whaen it pops out like this?

Thanx for replies, is it right in what i am saying about my shifting method causing this or is it some other fault (bent shift fork?)

I can understand the dogs being worn down if it were to slip out all the time but there has to be a cause to it popping out in the first place?

The bike hasnt done much work at all.

the forks bend when it pops out.

I'm not saying this is your problem... but this is what i've seen.

You may want to replace the shift shaft spring and see if that helps

when you shift from 2nd to 1st and it goes to neutral, that can be normal

happens on my brand new bike

yamaha's do this, mine did.

my KTM popped out of 2nd and went back to neutral when I went WOT to go up a dune. has only done that once though.

that has never happened to me before ever

That has been my experience as well. Figure on replacing the slipping gears, the associated shift fork or any that exceed the criteria in the manual. Depending on your hours, you may want to change out some bearings while you have the motor in pieces.

Sounds like plenty of workshop hours anyhow, my dealership mechanic seems to think it would be hard to pinpoint at the moment but if it persists and gets worse then its split the cases time...

Not real encouraging when my ktm 300 can do 150 hrs with not a dime spent on the motor.

thats pretty amazing, i wish my KTM would run without gas and oil and any maintenance.

j/k

my WR didn't take a cent towards repairs. just hop ups and maintenance
