  • no movement in my gear selector

    hi guys n gals

    so today i was riding to work and i got to the traffic lights on tonkin and collier road and went to go back to first gear, as i clicked down i noticed that the bike was stuck in neutral and wont move at all up or down. so i pulled to the side of the road to see if it was something jamming it but its not.

    so my question is what should i try do myself before i take the bike to a bike shop and pay toooo much??

    also the bike wasnt making any grinding sounds before this happened.

    the bike is a 2008 zx6

    thanks for any help

    Cole

    Have you removed the lever and lubed the pivot shaft?

    They get dry over time and need Anti-seize or waterproof grease annually.

        Low oil?
        Low clutch fluid?
        Clutch adjustment?

        It didn't look that far on the map...

          Sorry mate but zx6 suffer quite regularly from worn/bent shift fork and shift drum.

          I had exact same issue and turned out to be that. Not cheap

          Hopefully it's not

                    close Trina, the shift dogs on the gears need to be alligned or clear.
