That $10k YZ125D has been the source of much mirth among the old bike community.
Its not even a good resto.

Its a $3k bike, maybe $4k if he is lucky enough to find someone as silly as himself.

Another example of “you don’t make money from restoring old bikes”.

Still, it’s better value than the rusty YZ125H that’s advertised for $10k.

Seem that YZ H at least the D looked ok but nothing special

Yes old dirt bikes are not like old cars that for sure, i would think as you mentioned even 4K is over the top 3k is probably not too much to have an old nice looking dirt bike but you would want everything done at that price

i started up the bike and tried to get the gear to engage, no go so i have removed the clutch side case, was a bit of coolant in there not much but still enough to upset the shift drum, its a pity the bikes in real good nic and nothing is missing even the clutch basket does have any notches and it runs great in neutral

I can move the shift drum with a driver and hammer but if stiff and i it do not want to hit it too hard so i know that is the issue it must have some lite rust in it or crap from the 15 years of in action.
I don't have a clutch holding tool to go any further so just going to think about my options, as the next step is the remove the engine and take it to my local to get the clutch nut and magento losened

If this was my bike to keep i would just do it but i am thinking i can not be stuffed and many consider selling as a whole to recover my 1k if anyone is keen on DBW you guys get first pic if i go that way, PM me if you want more detail

i started up the bike. It goes/then is good sign?
the clutch side case was a bit of coolant. Suss?
I can move the shift drum, it's stiff. Sussed-it?

Why is the shift-drum hard to move?
It moves... So that's a start atleast?
Mega-gummed up-crud.. It moves?

motor sounds good
made up a clutch retaining tool, pretty sure its anticlockwise to get it the nut off
Getting a 6 sided 22mm sprocket for the impact gun 2moro
The coolant was a small amount but enough so i figure it could be little corrosion on shift drum bearing, i guess the water pump seal overtime was weeping a little, rest of the bearings and inside looked clear but yes the is crud that settles right at the bottom of the box and it inline with the shift drum on these boxes.

I can only move the shift drum with force but just slightly at the moment as i do not want to damage it, with the clutch basket out i should be able to access and better inspect/ resolve, if i need to split cases may sell the bike, not sure i want to go to all that trouble for the extra coin, still undecided on that one.

Stretching my brain here... It's late... & it was many years ago when I did similar.
From memory I was bodgy; as typical for-me. Yet I typically got the the job done.

I've been gentle: I've worked/plied one gear/cog against another to undo a nut/bolt.
I've also temp-fitted an empty clutch (without it's guts) & used that to undo the nut.

Edit: But yeah: A rattle-gun does make it-all so-much easier:
As you've said yourself ggg... Be sure to know left from right.
