Hi fellows. My TY250 has a very similar shift mechanism. I am having a problem shifting as well. I can’t seem to get the claw on shift lever 3 properly set équidistance from dowel pins in second gear. Any suggestions ? Engine was just rebuilt.

“Oh and one more stupid question what do I call this bike its completely stripped dt250 is it an enduro or a dirt bike or what would it be called”

I have several enduros that are stripped of all the street legal components. I simply refer to them as an Off-Road Conversion of a DT400B, or whatever model it was. You have to refer to it as a DT enduro to ensure that people know exactly what bike you are working on or questioning.

oh yes’ Dale has some amazing Utube explanations. It helps a bit, but I am still a bit uncertain about the TY250A’s  (exactly like the DT250) shift adjustments. Especially:
-The left change lever (splined on shift shaft) and how it may need to be positioned on the splined shaft. 
-The clawed shift lever being properly set equal distance from the drum’s dowel pins while in 2nd gear. I can’t see well enough to see if claw is in fact properly adjusted centered between the 2 dowel pins.
thank you fellows

First question I have is are you riding the bike or trying to shift it on the bench? 

Second question if are all detent balls and springs in place?

Usually if you don't screw with the adjustments...  no reason to...  everything works great on reassembly.  I'm guessing that ship has sailed. 

I think it was DEET that once wrote a great post on shift adjustment.  Not sure if it was here or on the "other" forum that is now gone.  You might try a search.

They don't shift well on the bench...  to get it to shift much at all you need to be spinning the shafts so the dogs can align with the slots.
