so all of a sudden i come to a light and i cant shift into first gear! this happened in one day. i had trouble a couple times today but only today that it was tough but i still got it there. now not at all. it just wont get past N. all other gears are fine. even with the bike not running i couldnt do it by hand either. my clutch feels tight and normal but i know the clutch fluid is dark and could use a change. is that all there is to it? thanks!
I figure it's either a bent fork, some problem with the shift mechanism or linkage, or some obstruction on the drum preventing movement of the fork along the groove.
It's not that complicated of a mechanical system.
