I am the resident neighborhood fix-it guy and recently was brought an 02 xr70
with a shifting issue.
I am reluctant to tear it apart because it has a ton of aftermarket goodies and it is the owners pride and joy. Also I will have to buy some specialty tools to split the case as I am thinking it is the shift detente lever that has become mangled.
The bike will not go into gear unless it is forced with a hard kick then it immediately slips out when the throttle is applied.
If I can confirm it is in fact the shift detente lever then I will buy the tool,split the case,fix the bike.
So what do you all think?
