Are the countershaft gears not meshing with the mainshaft gears? Maybe a set ring is hanging out on the shaft. look in that transmission area with a flashlight.

You look much less stupid locking your handlebar lock every night no matter where you park it than looking at the empty space where your bike was last parked.

Bike is not in gear...if it was, the clutch and engine would be trying to roll with the rear wheel. Can you try for another gear?

My guess is that it is not going into gear.

"Shut the motor off while you think it's in first and try to push the bike in that state (without applying clutch lever). If it's in first and everything is kosher the motor will fight your progress. If it pushes easily it may actually still be in neutral; in that case you should be able to get it into first by applying pressure to the shift lever while pushing the bike (again, without applying the clutch lever)"

Found this online...havnt tried pushing it while applying pressure to shift lever..going to try this when i get back to the bike....if this dosnt work is there any way to tell if something on the counter rod is stripped without opening the gearbox? Is there anything else I can try to get it into gear

it's not unusual to have to roll the bike a little to get the gears to shift into or out of neutral

I'd get violent with that shift lever, and probably regret it, but If it was caught between gears then a good kick would give me some info. manually turn the shifter to get maximum leverage...the hard part is doing that while rolling the bike.

Your intuition is right. Getting violent will only break something. If gentle pressure on the lever as the wheels are turning does not click it in and out of gear you already have a problem that violence will only make worse.
Perhaps the issue is as simple as greasing all the bearings and linkages in the shifter mechanism. Bending a shifter fork by stamping on the lever will require an engine teardown to fix.

SO you can't make ANY gear engage? Can you shift the gears up to 5th? you will have to roll the bike a little as you press on the shifter.

Shift through ALL the gears and watch this 5-point star, make sure the spring loaded roller goes over the point and settles in the NEXT space between points.


A) either your shifter is only partially turning this part and it is snapping back into the neutral position or
B) It it rotating but it is not rotating the drum behind it to move the forks
C) the forks are not connected to the drum
D) the countershaft between the front sprocket and the gears is sheared.
