Re: 1079 YZ250 problem
It sounds like the shift fork (rod) lost the snap ring and got pushed in. Some of those bikes could change the side the shifter was on. Look at the opposite side the shifter is on, should have a rubber cap on it. The fix should be simple , pull the side case and reinstall the snap ring --- but get another gestimation Also isn't it a 1979 --- yea I know --- big fingers lol.
