Im sorry guys, I was in a bit of a rush to get out of the house before I posted that. I found a 98 GSX on craigslist and when I took it for a test drive is when I noticed the problem. In order for it to go into reverse without it grinding I had to put it into 3rd and then into reverse. if i tried it going from any other gear it just woudnt go in.

There hasnt been any work done to it that I know of, I just just trying to get a feel of the work that needed to be done to get it into proper working order. I wasnt sure if it would need a complete rebuild or if it might just be a bent fork that could be causing the problem.

I was leaning toward a clutch issue but reverse is the only gear that does it and it just seems odd to me. I thought if it was the clutch at least one other gear would do the same thing but they seem fine to me.
It may be a simple fix but I'd like to do my homework before I get into something that may end up costing me thousands to fix. Thats the only issue thats keeping me from giving him an offer so if I can get a good idea what the problem might be I may have another car in the driveway this week.
