I have a 00 yzfr i was riding it other day, trying to change gear, all of sudden i couldn't change my gear and the gears went into neutral and locked up on me.
before this happened i had some trouble changing from first to 2nd it would take me couple tries to get into 2nd gear, it would go from 2nd to neutral as i went into 2nd.
do u think my clutch went out??
I dont have too much money to fix it and dont know too much about bike.

It might be a clutch adjustment issue. I don't know on your specific bike, but it's usually a thumbwheel at the lever or a locknut at the lever or transmission. Check that first. Recommend procuring a manual for the specs.

Try the clutch adjust, because that's about the only thing it could be that doesn't cost big $$$. There's a chance that you have damage to the shift forks, or other transmission parts. If so, the repair costs will be ~ $400 - 700 or more. Good luck.

There was & still is this slight flaw & it has to do with the selector fork that is adjusted from the right side.

I knew it was on mine & even ground a socket away so I could get in & make the correction back in '97 & the shifting has been flawless ever since.

In the mean time, if this is a second-hand bike the prior owner or owners could have abused this instead of having some patience & making the correction.

To hard for me to descibe it in spelling it out to you so the best thing is to obtain a workshop manual on the bike. Fortunately they are not as costly as the more modern sportbikes of to-day.
