Re: Shift Fork
if its hard going into gear and pops out it could as easily be a bad/worn dog or a combination of that n shifter fork. really the only way you will know is to get in there n see what you can see. no sense in buying parts until you know whats wrong with it. the service manual will give you a pretty good idea of what all is involved. probably could even find a video on youtube concerning the f4i transmission. its a pretty common bike so id bet there is something. even if it doesnt address the exact issue you could get a good idea of whats going on inside.
ive never done anything on that bike particularly but ill say its prob about a medium skill level job. if you can follow the manual it shouldnt be out of a back yard mechanics abilities. its plenty of work but nothing super complex. i sent you a link to the service manual download for the f4i.
