Shift spring? Is the lever limp? Selector drum? It could be just about anything in there.
no lever is real stiff and hard.i took it to shop they are thinking it might be a shift fork or something like that,but he wont know for sure untill he tears it apart

You might want to just get a motor off ebay for like 1200 and install it and it would be cheaper than 2600. Assuming that it's no longer under warranty.

i have no edeal,all i know is the clutch basket came apart and put a hole in the engine.i just hope the motor i am getting from the salvage yard is going to be ok.
Sorry to hear that Ray. At least she didn't lock up on you at speed and do more than just jack the motor.
