Question about 2002 Victory V 92 TC Deluxe

1 Answer

Loose lever Has anyone else noticed that their shifter lever is really loose and sloppy? I bet there's about 1 of play in mine. I don't remember it being like that new, but I didn't notice until recently how much play there is in it. Is there a problem in the pivot, or are parts wearing out? Any insight would be appreciated.

Check and make sure all of the linkage bolts are tight. I had my linkage come lose at the back on time. The bolt had vibrated out. If you find anything lose. Use lock tight blue or a little silicone on the threads to prevent this again. The bolt on the spline at primary is what came lose on mine. I was lucky and did not loose the bolt.

Shifter broke


Keep your fingers crossed that it is simply a loose pinch bolt on the shift arm. To check, look closely at the shift shaft end as you move the shifter up and down. If the shift shaft is not moving with the shift lever, the pinch bolt may be loose, or more likely, the splines have worn out on the shifter due to a loose bolt. To fix, grab a 10mm wrench and loosen and remove the pass-through bolt that is on the shift lever and replace the shift lever. I provided a link to a used one on eBay for $15. If the splines on yours are good and the bolt is tight with the shift shaft moving properly, then the internal shift fork is damaged which will require a teardown. 91 Kawasaki EL 250 EL250 Eliminator SHIFT LEVER

When i acelerate my bike feels like its not all the way in gear and over revs. My shifter is sloppy also not real sure where to start to correct this problem.


Hi, You may have a partly broken shifter. You have to take apart the shifter inside and see what is wrong. If you don't have any mechanic ability you should not do this yourself. Take it to a mechanic. Good luck.

Shifter lever won't return to the " center " position always. The problem is intermittent and seems to occur more in the heat. I've heard there may be something binding the mechanism....


Follow the shifter reach rod that runs from the shift lever back to a short lever on the transmission. Take the nut off and take the rod loose from this short lever. Then, move the forward like you are going to shift into low gear but don't actually shift the transmission into gear. Feel for the spring tension. Then, move the lever backwards and feel for the spring tension there. Check the shift lever and the reach rod for binding. If you don't feel the spring tension trying to return the lever back to the center, it's likely that the shifter pawl return spring is broken. This spring is what returns the shifter lever back to 'center". But,the temperature of the transmission will not change this. If the spring is broken, it's broken cold or hot. If the spring is good and there is not bind in the linkage, the problem may be in the shifter cam mechanism inside the transmission. Either way, this is an internal issue in the transmission.

Good Luck

My 1998 softail custom won't shift above third gear, and i have a really hard time getting it to shift back down


It could be your shifter pawl in the transmission. But, check for any binding in the long linkage between the shifter and transmission. Disconnect the long connector link at the shifter in the front and check for free movement of the connector and the shifter itself. If that moves freely, then I'd suspect the shifter pawl. You'll see the short lever that connects to the shifter pawl shaft. Make sure that it's tight and not loose on the shaft. If it's loose, the splines are probably worn in the lever and on the shaft as well. Move the lever like it would move to shift to a gear. You should feel spring tension against the movement and it should return to "center" when you let go. If not, the shifter pawl return spring is broken. Usually when this happens, all you have is first and second gear.

Good Luck

Have too much play on 93 electra glide sport shifter


Usually when this happens, it's the shift lever on the shifter pawl shaft of the transmission has worn is loose. Start at the foot shifter and find the rod that is going back towards the rear of the bike. Follow the rod back until it connects to a lever. Wiggle this lever. Is the lever loose on the small shaft that it clamps onto? If so, this is your problem. Regrettably, this is fix is not a simple fix if it's done the correct way. It requires the replacement of the shifter pawl shaft and that requires a tear-down of the transmission.

Good Luck

The shaft that goes into the gear box, behind my primary is loose and not clicking into gear normally. I am told that the shaft may need to come out and be put back in properly, but also was told that...


To check the adjustment of the shifter pawl, first you need to have that lever tight. Here's the problem. You probably are going to find that the lever will not tighten. The splines on the shaft are worn out. This is bad. You must pull everything on the left side of the bike to get to the lever to replace it. If the spines are worn on the shaft, even a new lever is not going to fix the problem, the shaft must be replaced. This is a major job as the guts of the transmission have to come out. The shifter pawl shaft is the one of the first parts put into the transmission and one of the last to come out.

To check the adjustemtment of the shifter pawl, with the bike NOT running and the transmission in neutral, gently push down on the shfiter lever until the transmission tries to shift. Notice the distance. Now do in the other direction, pull up like you're going to second gear. Notice how far the shifter goes before it is stopped by the shifter fork trying to shift the transmission. There should be about the same travel up as three is down and the spring tension should be the same in both directions as well. To adjust the shifter pawl requires special tools as well.

Good luck

MY HARLEY ULTRA CLASSIC "1999 " SHIFTER SEEMS TOO LOOSE. WHAT SHOULD I DO?


Follow the shifter linkage back from the forward controls to the shift lever going into the transmission. Make sure the joints and bolts in the linkage are tight. My guess is the shift lever is loose on the shaft. If so, there is an allen head bolt that secures the shift lever to the shifter shaft. The shift lever is split and the allen head bolt is a pinch bolt. It's kinda hard to get to, but an allen head socket, short extension, and a rachet will work. Make sure this bolt is tight. Use a little penetrating oil before trying to tighten it. If it won't tighten, try taking the bolt out, chase the threads in the shift lever with a tap, and replace the bolt with a new one.
