ok here is the deal i was talking to someone about buying a 1979 yamaha yz250 the only problem is he says it runs fine but one day he put it in gear and he cant get it out.....ok well i was wondering if anyone knew what the problem could be, and how much would it cost in parts to fix aproximatly...any knowledge would be greatly appreciated
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.
