Default Stuck in 3rd

I was trying to fix my 1999 zx6r before because it wasn't going down into 2nd or 1st sometimes so I adjusted the bar below thwart foot peg then reposition the latch which connects to the spigot coming out of the gearbox. Now the bike won't go up on down at all and it's stuck in 3rd which is a pain in the arse.
Any suggestions on how-to sort it?

Now it's stuck in 6th. The clutch is fine as well because I just checked it

Sounds to me that you may have a bent shift fork or 3. I'd also say you shouldn't try to reposition it yourself if you're calling it a "spigot" coming out of the gearbox.

That said, the lever and the "spigot" both have a dimple on them that should be aligned. Then make sure that you're rolling the bike back and forth as you try to change gears.

Don't quite appreciate the condescending attitude but fair point. I called it a spigot because I don't know the "by the book" name for the actual component. It's the splined shaft coming out of the gear box that's all. And I was hoping it wasn't gear selector fork problems but oh well won't be too hard to fix

Apologies, been a stressful day for me (came online to relieve stress from preparing for Grandpa's funeral tomorrow).

Double check that when you have the bike off, you roll the bike back and forth as you try to shift it. Does the lever go back to the center when you're trying to shift it? If not, I'd put money on it being a broken spring on the ratchet in there.

How about you quit fucking with it and have someone with a clue come look at it before it gets expensive?

Just a thought....

You are the one with the attitude buddy. He is giving you good insightful advice and you are way overreacting. Take a chill pill before you burst a nerve bro.

Wasn't overreacting I was just saying. I appreciate all the advice but this problem has been bugging me for a while. I don't want to take it to a dealer because given what I paid for the bike it will cost a similar price to get the problem sorted.I've tried rolling the bike backwards and forwards and it's not really doing much to help. And everything returns to its original position after I've tried

This is true but if you want to keep something that's basically considered a classic, that's the price you're gonna pay.

I had a similar problem with my 89 750 and I sold it. Mainly because it was a Suzuki but the problem just put a fire under my ass to sell it.
