2007 GV650 stuck in 3rd gear
« on: December 30, 2017, 07:47:48 PM »

My last ride on my GV650 this year was back in October, and on the way home it got stuck in 3rd gear, I think while downshifting on an off ramp coming off the highway.  I limped it home like that.   It's on my lift in the garage right now, still stuck in 3rd.  I do have a maintenance manual with some info in it, but I thought it would also be a good idea to pick any brains out there willing to be picked.  So if anyone has any thoughts on where to begin, what to check first, etc, please chime in. 

Thanks.

Could be poorly adjusted gear lever linkages but more likely that a gear selector fork has probably jammed.
Mostly caused by bad oil. Bad oil gets too thin when hot, eg, car oil and not designed for the high temp of bikes, or just old and past its change distance of  max 6,000km (4,000 miles).
If you find that when your engine is hot it is hard to find neutral and/or changes are clunky, that's a sure signal you are due for an oil change.
Sometimes the gear forks can be freed up by gently tapping the small pulley end of the drive shaft with a hammer.
See figures 19 and 20 of the parts catalogue.
