my money is on it having had the waterpump impellor replaced, and the gear selector not having been set in the right place when the gearbox was put back on. not difficult to put right, just needs a little thought to work out where the linkage should be.

If it's the one with gear and throttle on the twist grip I'd look at the plastic gear selector slipping on the steel shaft ...(don't ask how I know)

There is a clip that holds the gear selector shaft in place under the powerhead Its located just behind the carburettor if you look to the right hand side.
It sometimes can be the cause. It has a pin that slides into a small hole on the top of the gear selector shaft .
Its part number is 823862 if it helps !
