2001 F4 10k Going Between Gears

Hi All,

Im new to the forum and had the f4 around 6 months.

i have noticed a problem keep occurring with the gears.

When im giving the bike some real gas and really pushing her and going through the gears i full between the gears and have no drive and if i put my foot on the pedal you can feel the teeth grinding.

i literally have to roll to the side of the road to a complete stop and kick it back it into gear.

Any advice as to what i should be checking or changing?

there is a problem with your gear selector

drain the oil and look for pieces on the magnet

then go to page G11 of the parts manual

look at items

35
29 & 30

good luck....tell us what you find

Ah, one of my favourite subjects! First of all what Noel said. Doesn't sound like the main selector spring or you'd be stuck between two gears which is a random choice the fucker makes when it breaks. I'd also check the small springs underneath the pawls and what they call the spring supports that act on the pawl for sticking:-
Items 23, 24,25

Cheers

Technique or clutch bleeding could be a simple solution.
On the technique side, make sure your shift lever is adjusted for you. It can be as simple as raising or lowering the lever or chaninging the foot peg location. If you can't get your foot properly under or over the lever, shifting will not engage accurately.

On the Clutch Bleeding side, if you have air or old fluid, the clutch will not disengage proerly and the shift will be inefficient and could hang up in neutral space.

Check the easy things first.

try shifting without the clutch.......that will eliminate that

Deano;

23, 24 & 25 control the direction of shifting either up or down

35 returns the lever to center......you can do that with you toe (DON'T.......FIX IT)

29 & 30 center the drum so the pawls can get another bite at the drum
