Hi, Anonymous for this scenario you will need your service manual, parts fiche, and owners manual if you can't find the best tool you ever bought for your Kawasaki, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.

SOURCE: 2nd gear problems

Your teeth are worn on second gear. You'll have to disassemble the transmission to fix it. Sorry for the bad news. If you have a shop manual, Clymers or Haynes manual the procedure is quite detailed. Not something I would do myself unless you have a lot of experience.

SOURCE: my gear shift seams to

There are two places at the shift leaver that could be the problem. there is a nut and lock-nut together on the shift rod. you can loosen the lock-nut, adgust the play in the rod and then tighten the lock nut (sometimes this is behind a cover plate). Also, the leaver can become loose where it is attached to the splined shaft comming out of the transmission case. This must be tight. It may have slippped. It must be possitioned in a spot that makes it centered so that when shifting either up or down... it feels right. When you get it just right tighten with locktight compound so it doesn't come loose easily. If this is loose for very long, the teeth on spline or the leaver will strip out. Hope this helps.

Wont shift gears


WOW, I haven't ran into this for decades. Well, I would bet, the circlip that keeps the shift shaft into place is missing, the bike fall hard on the left side sometime? Well, if the clip is missing, the shaft can move to the right and there is a lever with a hooked arm that rides upon a shift drum (all trail bikes have similar system) and moving the shift lever, moves the hooked arm over the drum, causing a shift in gears. If the shaft is loose, the hooked arm will eventually come off the drum. Not sure, but it's probably under the r/s cover. This is a repair I did a lot in jr.high school for my friends. Not too hard.
