Honda VTR 250 issue

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by ksystemz, Mar 11, 2009.

  1. Hi All,

    Just looking at friends VTR and for some reason its not able to get into 5th gear. 1-4 is fine but the 5th is impossible? what could cause this. Cant really find anything on the net.
  2. One the run or in the garage?'

    In the garage I wouldn't worry too much. Whilst riding I'd be looking at something more serious.

    Make sure the chain is tensioned correctly, all external linkages have no slop and the clutch is adjusted correctly.

    if all that's good then I think the cases will need cracking.
