If it is like other gear boxes, best to get it into neutral first. If you can't, you may be bulling out gear shafts with the cover. Take a look at the parts book and I think it is covered in the service manual.

Try rotating the input and output shafts. If it is stuck in gear from the crash, you may have very serious problems with the gearbox. I'd start looking for another one. It may be less expensive than repairing the one you have.

When you say stuck do you mean the shifter will not move, or it moves up and down but will not engage. If it moves up and down it may be more the shift mechanism not returning and allowing it to shift to the next gear. Does it return to the middle position by itself (ie. is the shift spring still in tact) or did the shifter just flop up and down,


If it is stuck and will not move then it may be some serious damage but I can't believe that a crash on dirt would do that to the gear box. They are pretty tough.

If it does move up and down do as John suggested and try rotating the shafts. Also move the shifter to the middle position (normal rest) and then try again. Unless the shifter goes back to the rest position it will not shift. Failing that a couple of good light taps with a hammer of your choice on the shafts or shift mechanism may loosen up whatever is happening in there.

I don't see it being anything major if you do have to take it apart. You have nothing to lose at this point. I do believe the service manual details on how to do it.

OK I got the gearbox split apart and found the gearbox shift selector shaft fork slightly bent with the fork tweeked like that it wasnt allowing the fork to engage the pins in the shift drum. I got it freed up but am ordering a new one anyways its called a Preselect complete its number 7 in the parts book. I think it was a freak failure because that gearbox looks like its built pretty tuff. It just bumms me out because I had a whole month off work and was 3 days into the trip with my brother doing the continental divide trail from Colorado to Canada and then up to Tuktoyaktuk N.W. Canada. Had to UHAUL my bike back from Helena MT. And now I am back to work and just talking about it. I will try again next year!

OH yes I forgot to mention that it probably failed because i dumped it on that side and we had to spin the bike around on that side to get it facing downhill again so I think it was all my fault and just bad luck. I still love my Stelvio and next time I will treat her better!
