Gearbox issues
« on: April 15, 2019, 07:05:58 PM »
A Friend of mine who has a used bike shop and a workshop tells me that he recently took a 2012 tiger with just over 9k on the clock. He sold it on as a part ex . he says the bike is now back in the workshop with the new owner reporting that the bike will go up through the gears but wont go back down. The engine is coming out and gearbox stripped and repaired . Has anyone came across this?

Lots of people have come across this

It's either the selector return spring or the rivet in the end of the selector shaft

If it is the rivet: I welded mine but you can also tap and screw it

Tinkering is what happens when you try something you dont quite know how to do, guided by whim, imagination, and curiosity.

Agree with RTWO. Its a known fault. On the good news I don't think he needs to sttip the bike down and engine out. Im pretty certain the spring or detent pin can be accessed through the clutch.
There's enough posts on here to give an idea of how to approach the job. If not I'm sure others will assist

Had mine repaired around 45K miles (pin) under warranty, then last month again at 86K miles. Both of the pins that sheared off were the earlier version which was not held as solid as the new one I put in. It looked much better. No reason for engine to come out.  :028:

Agree with the above do not remove engine until a proper inspection has been done otherwise your mate will get his pants pulled down for an easy fix.
