Stuck in gear, shift level stuck down

I will take it to the dealer asap but in the meantime does anyone know what is going on? It is stuck in gear, the lever is stuck down, and the clutch works.

It happened twice to me so far (700 miles and 2700 miles). You can absolutely use roadside assistance. I did last time. I had the dealer come 2 hours away to get it. I **** to Ducati NA first. It cost over $1k to fix the first time because they said that there was some damage from the spring. I don't know what the bill came to the second time. You definately should notify ducati NA ( I assume that you are in the USA?) to notify them of the problem and your dissapointment to be sure that they oversee the repair and expedite parts and service at your dealer. From what I gathered, the shifter lever is over extending on downshifts. The mechanism needs adjustment (the stops as it was explained to me) so it doesn't continue to brake the return spring. The service manager at my dealer explained that Ducati has a new method of repairing the problem that is supposed to prohibit it from happening again. They are not too quick to call it a technical service bulletin (TSB), but that is what it looks like to me.

I have a 07XL1200low it won't shift into 2nd gear unless I shift at a high rpm from first Or I shift at a low rpm quick from first to second or I down shift into second it pops out when I give it gas

Hi Jamie, not good, could be and extremely misajusted or worn out clutch or you have a gear engagement problem probably caused by a bent or worn shifting fork, also sometimes shifter pawl and cam follower springs don't want to play any more. Check your primary fluid level and proper clutch adjustment. If you are comfortable with your clutch and oil level you might want to take it to your local dealer or reputable shop and have them pull the transmission and do an estimate. Has the bike ever been dropped or laid down on the left side a popular cause for shifting problems. Good luck

Will not shift down

This doesn't sound like bent shift forks. That is a very good thing. If the gearbox has to be opened you would be looking at $1500 to $2000. Checking and fixing it yourself as follows might cost you $20. A dealer would charge $100 to $200 or so. Remove the right side casing and then the clutch. I think you will find a broken gearshift return spring #13 or pin #14, gearshift drum stopper spring #10, or gear shift arm spring #12. Any of these parts can be supplied by Babbitt's. Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock.

Look at "GEARSHIFT DRUM" page. I sincerely hope I am correct in the diagnosis. The dealer route really hurts the wallet. Let me know what you find out.

Motorcycle won't shift gears

You have bent shift forks my friend. You can take it to the dealer for $$$$ or ask a mechanic in the shop if he fixes bikes at home. This will cost a lot less. My guess is $600.00. Get a firm price before the work starts.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!
