Only have 1st and neutral???

Kid broke the 2005 crf230. No big crash, no jamming the tranny. but it only has 1st and N. Any idea what broke? I have to tear the tranny open but could use some ideas so I don't tear too far... shift fork?...

I don't know if the crf is the same but on the drz400 there's been a few instances where the little c-clip behind the shifter on the shift shaft came off and let the shaft move inwards causing similar problems. Might be worth a quick look. It's # 21 in the pic. Good luck.

I'd start by pulling the clutch cover and seeing what is going on with the shaft...

thanks, FWIW clutch is working fine, but I can take a look. keep em comin'

fixed it, your gonna love this one...

The shifter bent ever so slightly to where it hit the case on an upshift. Could not see it until I layed the bike over to look. Changed shifter to one spline lower on the shaft and found the other gears.
