I have an ltz400 that randomly lost all the gears and now I'm looking to rebuild the transmission do I have to remove the flywheel. even if I don't want to remove the crank.
right now it rolls a bit but doesn't go into gear when I release the clutch. could it be my clutch as well?

Does the shift lever feel like it's changing gears? Pull off the clutch cover and check that the plates are holding the basket from turning, and watch the shift pawl when you have some change gears.
The cases have to be split to get to the transmission, so you will have to pull a lot of stuff off, including the flywheel, if it's something inside.

I see what you’re saying, leave the crank in the side that the flywheel is on and split the cases. I’m trying to remember, but I think you have to to get parts under it to split them. Never tried it. Alan?

So is it a worn out clutch or won’t shift gears?

Have you tried adjusting the clutch?

It’s supposed to have some slack at the bottom of the cable. The clutch handle should be adjusted at the top so it doesn’t have much play. Got a pic of the clutch plates?

Hard to say without being there. You should still be able to put the rear end on blocks and tell a difference when shifting gears while spinning the tires.

Like jet says, jack it up and put it in gear. See if the sprocket and shaft are turning, and see what gears are turning on the clutch side.
