1st and second gear issue when taking off crf 450x

Recommended Posts

I went out riding this weekend and after 20 miles the bike started making a funky noise when starting in 1st or second. But the other gears are good. I pulled off the clutch basket and everything looked good. What else could it be?

Well if it's not a clutch problem and your chain and sprocket are in good shape and adjusted correctly (your chain is not jumping teeth under heavy load), then the only thing left is the trans.

I would check the chain and sprockets carefully and if nothing there, drain the oil for the trans and see if you see any metal in the oil.

Okay. I will take a look at it this weekend if it is that which I think it is. Is it a super expensive fix to replace 1st and second gear?
