Question about Yamaha V Star Classic 650 Motorcycles
2009 Yamaha vstar 650 shifter stuck solid in 6th gear. any ideas as to what is the cause and how to fix it @
Possible shifter fork in the tranny is broken. Also inside the engine there is a little lever that pulls on a pin when shifting. That pin could be broken. Also pull in the clutch lever and try to push the bike if it moves then the clutches aren't stuck together if it doesn't move freely then its possibly a set of stuck clutch plates. That's a simple fix.

Hi, Lloydainey and the usual suspects are:
1. Improper clutch adjustment or not disengaging.
2. Bent shift shaft.
3. Shift fork bent or seized.
4. Gear seized on the shaft.
5. Gear positioning lever binding.
6. Shift return springs weak or broken.
7. Shift return spring pin loose
8. Shift mechanism arm spring is broken.
9. Shift mechanism arm is broken.
10. Shift drum is broken.
11. Shift lever loose on the shift shaft.

i use a jump box on mine most weekends when i wanna take it out, i hook the red to battery and black onto my exhaust and it fires right up no problem. is the clicking noise coming from the fuel pump behind the ignition? it should click for a few seconds then stop. if it stays on then you are not getting enough fuel outta the tank, change the fuel filter and if bike had been stored for winter get a good fuel system cleaner, additive type. if in USA get Berrymans B12, double dose get bike to run hopefully let it stand overnight and all should be fine. fingers crossed. if is is clicking from somewhere else like starter or a relay by the battery, check all the ground terminals you can find

it sounds to me like clogged jets in the carb u need to take them off and clean the jets with a peice of small wire pull a peice off a wire wheel it works best for the polit jets (small ones ) get a digital camera and take pictures as u go if you are not sure that way u can refer to them if you get lost good luck

sounds like the carb is dirty and or the idle screw has moved

Testimonial: "I pulled the carbs off, removwed float bowl cover, found one of the jets was clogged. All good now!!!!!"
A service manual is a valuable tool with an aging bike. I suggest the dealer/mfr. or Clymer books. In the meantime, go to the library reference section...646 stacks should have what you need.
