1992 GSXR 1100 Clutch PROBLEM.

I have a 1992 Suzuki GSXR 1100. This bike is totally a headache, I have so much problems with this bike because the previous owner did not take care of it. I just ran into a problem one day. The gear is stuck in one gear and bike will not shift. The shift pedal moves a little, but dose not change the gear. I donít know if the cause may be that my little brother was switching through the gears a lot while bike is turned off. I donít know what to look for but i took apart the whole clutch assembly, even the clutch basket. Then I found the one of the paws is broke (circled in red on the image) Can this be the problem why its stuck in one gear and not shifting? I ordered that little paw from the dealer which runs around $4.00. But before i start putting everything together and closing it off, what can i test to see that there is no other problems with shifting? Circled in green is the rotating mechanism, is there a special way I can make sure that piece is working correctly? Please give me some advice on how to go about solving this problem. Thank You and i appreciate all comments and advise.

If your shifters ratcheting lever has one side broken it's only going to shift in one direction up or down which ever side is still good or get jammed by the broken part getting there. Follow the service manual directions for repair and you should be good. Probably could test it with the cover off. Would be good to adjust the clutch while at it. Good luck with it. Hope it isn't a bad transmission too.

92/1100 clutch

The motor does NOT need to be running for the transmission to shift. You may need to put the rear wheel in the air though, via a swingarm stand or a jack. You can shift each gear but you will need to rock the wheel/bike back/forth abit to get the gears to engage. If you found a broken piece, obviously thats the first thing to address. Perhaps you'll be lucky and thats all it will require. Was it shifting fine before this discovery? NO jumping out of gear at higher rpms? Hard riding on a older (or any) bike can bend a shift fork or round off transmission engagement dogs inside the transmission. If all was well before, it appears you'll be back in black when you're done here.
P.S...There is NO clutch adjustments per-say as its a hydrallic clutch on the 1100's.
