ZXR250...Rough 5th Gear??

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by Little_Miss, Sep 27, 2005.

  1. Morning all,

    I took a ZXR250 out for a test ride this morning as I'm looking for a replacement for my ZX2R that I wrote off last month. Overall I was pretty happy with the condition of the bike, however I noticed that when in 5th gear the throttle felt rough yet all the other gears were pretty smooth.

    Bike is a 2000 model (I think and compliance 2002) and has about 12,000kms on it. I did notice that the chain wasn't in the best condition and should be replaced soon, but I doubt this would cause the problem if all the other gears seemed fine.

    Any ideas on what might be the cause??
