06 Gsxr 600









06 Gsxr 600 runs but doesn't shift to any gear! HELP!

Long Story Short, The Master Link in my chain had popped off causing my chain to slap my bike and snapping the left side clutch push rod(the one that sticks out under the chain cover). So i replaced the push rod, and bought a brand new chain. Put everything together and on and the bike is stuck in a random gear and will not shift out of it what so ever. I have literally tried everything.

Its a 2006 gsxr 600, it seems to be stuck in neutral, but if you put the key in and turn it on, no number appears in the shift box on the tac and the neutral light is not on. and no matter what you do it is not possible to shift out of what ever gear it is in.

So i have pulled the motor and in the process of removing the last few bolts to split the case,and have noticed the little star cam gear was not sitting in the correct position and could not be rotated.

do you think my problems is a bent shift fork?

That star cam Gear the small little one that turns when you shift, is what doesn't rotate what so ever it moves like 0.5mm-1mm but its like the rod is jammed if you know what i mean.

Im fixing to split the case after the last few bolts are removed, but i don't want to split it, if it doesn't need to be split. ALL HELP IS APPRECIATED!

Shift fork is what I was thinking as I read what it was doing. The thing about them is that they can look fine and be bad. I looked at mine and couldn't visibly see any issues. I sent the parts off and the business I sent the parts to said they were bad. I had then send replacements. I was also worried the shift drum was worn. They determined only the shift forks were worn. I probably could have measured them. It didn't cost more than shipping to have the parts inspected.

Oh bad yeah I'm literally running out of time lol school starts tomorrow for me and I would like to drop the motor off at a shop and let them take care of it but I just didn't want to pay some ridiculous price. Should I call a few shops around and see if anyone could do a motor inspection?

The spring is off on the shift lever. That arm should have a spring on it and should be sitting in the shifting star...

Had a customer a few months back with a Gsxr 600 That popped the chain and did the same thing. And actually bent the output shaft. Best bet is to change the tranny.

I have an old 06' motor with a bad top end, bent valve into piston. Everything down below is perfect. Figure out what you need, PM me. You can take whatever you want.

You post that it is stuck in a random gear and then you post that it seems to be in neutral but the neutral light doesn't come on.

This is because your are in a high gear false neutral. Probably between 3rd and 4th or between 4th and 5th. Notice the neutral position in the pic I posted and the neutral position in your pic. Yours is far from "true" neutral.

With that said, when a motorcycle comes to a stop in a high gear neutral, it can be very hard to get it out of that position without the rear wheel turning at a good clip. You may have been successful by having a buddy push you on the bike, with his bike, and you trying to down shift at speed.

Kind of late for that now. Good luck with your problem. I do believe it is nothing major, though.

Yes that's what happen I believe it's in 3rd or 4th the master link on the chain had popped on the freeway as soon as I had shifted up a gear and then the plastic chain cover that's goes over the chain was jammed in between the chain so I pulled off on the side of the freeway immediately I tried shifting down but couldn't because the left side clutch push rod had snapped and I lost all the tension on my clutch and I didn't think about just stomping it down my mind was on pulling over lol

I have no doubt you are stuck in a false neutral. If you havent split the cases yet, you can re-install the shift linkage and try shifting back to true neurtal while you're turning the counter shaft sprocket. you can do that with a drill hooked up to a socket.

you don't have to use the shifter linkage. you can use a pair of visegrips on the shifter shaft. just make sure to clamp it somewhere that won't affect the seal. later.

you can do this with the engine still out of the bike.
