Default 99 CR 250 shift selector and transmission

First of all....maybe someone could explain how to put pics on here???? I upload and it says invalid file type? There is no way to select jpg? So. . .I will do my best to describe what is happing without pics.

The shift selector and the single shifter arm lacks about 1/16 of making it into the bottom slot. I took a pic of the entire trans before I tore it down as I knew I could have issues going back together. ..and here I am. ...even with pics to go from. I swear I have not gotten a gear or washer out of place, but, the pic shows the shifter arm in the bottom groove. ..so I know that's where it needs to go. ..however. ..the shifter arm bottoms out on the case before slipping into the shift selector. There is a middle groove that if I didn't have the pic to go by. ..I would swear the single shifter arm would go in it? The other gear set and with the two shifter arms line up and act normal. . .

I guess my question is if the single shifter arm goes in the very bottom groove? Looking at it. ..the groove goes lower than the arm could possibly go due to the housing that slides up and down on the pin bottoms out on the case? I have pics that show clearly what I am trying to describe. ..but. ..can't load them. ..sorry. .. I sure would appreciate some help with this. ..thanks

You can't upload pictures because you haven't met the minimum post
requirement. I use a photo sharing site and import my pictures.

If I understand what you are saying, the bottom shift fork won't engage
the correct slot in the sift drum because the shift drum is too low. You're
right, this is hard to diagnose without pictures. Could be a number of
causes.

First thing I would do is to try and just install the drum and problem
shift fork alone, no tranny gears or other forks. See if you can get the
fork to line up that way.

Enroll in a photo sharing site (I use Photobucket), and upload some detailed
pictures of the problem and I'll see what I can come up with.

Fork # 1 & 2 could be switched or not in the correct slot.

The photo thing is just stupid...u would think this is a government run forum...

Looking at the other pics on line...the single shift lever is clearly in the middle slot of the drum. I called a dealer and they said it goes in the middle slot. What I cant explain is why the pic that I took when I pulled the case off clearly shows the singe lever in the bottom slot...which is the same slot that the lower lever on he other shaft is in? I went ahead and put it together with the single lever in the middle...shifts fine...I can find nuetral fine...however...I can only find 3 gears on the up side? It finds 1st...then neutral...2,3,4....then no 5th? I am wondering if the guy I bought the bike from had it apart and put back together wrong?

The dealer told you right. Only one arm per slot.

The shift forks cant be switched around without the use of a hacksaw and a welder...I tried to swap them around in order to make sure that they couldnt be. If I could put up a pic of the shift drum just after splitting the case...u would clearly see the single shift fork is on the bottom groove. I tried to put it back together like this and ran into isuues....it puts everthing in a bind. I believe its back together like it should be with the single shift fork in the middle groove...thats what I am having trouble finding out...the service manual doesnt even cover this. Before I put the the cases back together...I would run through the gears while spinning them by hand...and from what I could tell...I had 1-N-2-3-4...but...no 5th? By the time the drum leaves neutral and gets to 4th...its at the end of its rotation? Now I am nervous about completing it afraid I wont have 5th gear...

I would just put the cases back together and then do the shift testing again.
