Some shifting problems can be fixed by adjusting the shifter pawl, but this has to be done with the trany fully engaged in 3rd....The only other thing u can do is ajust the shifter linkage and the clutch. If that doesnt do it - ya gotta open up the trany itself and look for badly worn parts or damage to the shifter fork, gears or drum

My 2004 1500 Vulcan Nomad will not stay in gear 2nd thru 4th gears? It started off as a momentary thing where when I went from 1st to 2nd it would go into a false neutral. now it won't stay in gear at all...


Always start with the easy (read cheap) stuff first. Make sure that the clutch is fully disengaging when in gear and engine running. If bike 'clunks' and lurches forward as soon as you shift into any gear, it may simply be that your clutch needs to be bled and/or adjusted so that you are fully engaging/disengaging the gear. More likely, however, the shift lever was subjected to a heavy foot resulting in the shift fork being bent. This prevents full engagement of the gear resulting in it popping out under load. Unfortunately, this repair requires a teardown. Continued operation with the tranny popping out of gear will round off the shift dogs and create an even more very expensive repair.

Sounds like a bent shift fork or two. Replacing the bad shift forks is major surgery and is NOT recommended for the inexperienced mechanic. Several special tools are needed. The top end and gearbox get totally torn down just to get to the shift forks. This is a very expensive repair, guessing $2100 or so at the dealers. Bummer. Contact a few dealers to cofirm my view of the problem and the probable repair cost. The shift forks move left and right as the shift drum is rotated when you lift or push down on the shift pedal.

How do i on a motorcycle go to first gear from 5th


hi, if when you start your bike you press the gear lever down to go to 1st from neutral and then pull it back up to go to 2nd,3rd,4th and 5th then the only way to get back into first gear is to press the gear lever down 4 times to get it back into 1st gear their is no quicker way to do this you have to work your way back down the gears.

if your coming to a stop quick then just pull the clutch in and keep pushing the lever down until it dont push down any further it will only go down 1 gear at a time so you will need to push it down 4 times but you dont need to count you can just keep pressing it down the gears until it dont go down any more then you know this is first, you need to keep the clutch in when doing this.

how ever if your slowing down is more gradual then what you can do is go from 5th down to 4th then let engine slow the bike down then when the revs drop down change down to 3rd and so on until you get ot 1st gear.

if your coming to a stop quick say at lights or junction then if the bike is in 5th gear then you can change down the gears once the bike has stopped just hold the clutch in when you stop and keep tapping the gear lever down until you feel that its not going down any more gears this way you know its in 1st without having to cound down the gears, their id no quicker way of going down the gears to get to 1st.

i hope i have read your question right and gave you the answer you was looking for if i got the question wrong then please explain then i can assist you further ok

Got a new 2009 Honda Shadow Spirit VT750 C2. When I'm taking off and shift from 1st into 2nd it always stops at neutral first instead of going right into 2nd. It also does this when downshifting. Sometimes...


in the gearbox theres a disc which the pedal is coupled to.now the gear selectors have pegs which engage with slots in the disc,so the spring loaded plunger which holds the disc when in each gear.spring may have broken,the pegs may be worn or broken,the gearbox needs dismantling to fix

Gearbox 'clank', and someting sounding like it is loose


This will become more dangerous over time. Go to your dealer. This will be cheaper than an (uninsured) crash when you cannot drive out of trouble because you ignored your broken gearbox. This will invalidate your insurance.
