More "fake" neutrals than actual gears 10 years 6 months ago #11623

The past few weeks I have been experiencing an increasing number of "fake" neutrals as well as gear jumping especially between 4th and 5th gear(can you imagine the fright when doing a corner at 120km/h and the gearbox jumps to 4th :ohmy: :ohmy: :ohmy: ) I am not too clued up about the gearbox techs and mechanics. The last time I had a gearbox open it was on a MBX50 in the early 90's :blink:

Any ideas

Ek het ook so iets op getel so rukkie terug. Maar dit was vir my asof ek dan nie die rat hard genoeg of mooi genoeg oor gesit het nie. Dan sal hy rat wissel, maar n paar oomblikke laater terug spring. Ek weet nie, ek maak maar nou net n punt daar van om die rat verm oor te sit, dit werk vir my, maar nou ja ek is maar nog nuut met die KLR, joune is dalk meer van n probleem.

Eish... gearbox fixes usually involve a motor casing split.
Sounds like a selector lever worn?
Will peruse my manual later today.

I also assumed it is the "moffie" foot syndrome, but this morning as I shifted up to 5th gear it kept on shifting upwards. Normally, the gear lever won't move upwards once you are in 5th, but mine did three or four times before hitting 5th!

Not finding a gear or downshifting without notice will get me in a lota trouble on the routes I commute in bumper to bumper traffic.

Dammit, I don't have the time or patience for this sh!t :angry:

Could be the selector drum pins or the gear lever selector return spring[clutch cover side access]OR worst case-selector bones[3]might be worn,however in all my 22 year of doing KLR;s have only replaced these once-these bikes have STRONG gearboxes.More than likely it is to do with the moving parts on the clutch side.
