1962 YD3 250 Shifter adjustment
« on: April 02, 2017, 09:12:13 PM »
Sealing up the "shifter box" on the bottom of this bike, leaking terrible.  Pulled apart to clean and inspect and I cant find any info on how to set adjustment screw #20.  It fits inside the return spring for the shift shaft.  The screw is offset, like an eccentric.  Any one had one apart?  Thanks!!

Well... figured it out just with trial and error.  I assembled on bench and went through the gears till it felt "right".  And then repeated till it would go through the 4 gears.  Setting that arm in the middle did not let it shift through all.  Best just to go by feel.  I had it on the road this Sunday.  Shifted great.  After i pulled the clutch basket apart..stuck plates...  But it is sooo fun!!  Runs like a top!!
