doesn't like to go into 3rd

So I took my 96 CR250 out for its first full day of riding since I bought it and everything seems great on it except I noticed that when I'm grabbing gears it dont really like to go into 3rd. Im new to bikes so im wondering what you guys think it might be?

Thanks in advance for your help.


Maybe clutch plates...maybe the basket, pull it out and take a look.

... when I'm grabbing gears...

Do you use your clutch when shifting gears?

sounds like a bent shift fork or gear issue , maybe time to split the cases. I would look at clutch first. Have u changed the oil?

I'm going to throw the obvious out there, but make sure your shift lever isn't bent and rubbing the case before you crack it all open. Try before you pry!
