Just replaced the countershaft on my XRV650 RD03. Tried the shifting through the gearbox to make sure it works before continuing with the rebuild but I can't shift into 4th. It ends up sticking in a false neutral between 3rd and 4th.
Fixed, not quite sure what it was that was wrong with the RD03 shift forks/shaft or drum but swapped for a Bros 400 shift forks, shift fork shaft and selector drum and it now works.
The shaft the shift forks run on has a burr or something on the right end of the shaft. Think it was sticking in the crankcase preventing it shifting into 4th leaving it stuck in a false neutral between 3rd and 4th.
