Third gear pops out of mesh


Hi Mary, and the usual suspects are:
1. Shifter pawl improperly adjusted.
2. Shifter drum improperly adjusted or damaged.
3. Shifter engaging parts/dogs badly worn or rounded.
4. Shifter forks bent.
5. Damaged gears.
For more information about your issue, please visit the websites below, and for specific information or questions you can reach me at xlch@mail.com. Good luck and have a nice day.

I have a 1997 kawasaki vulcan 1500 classic it grind going into 2nd gear and under heavy throttle it will kick out of gear i was told it is the shift fork but my shift lever is really loose i need to know...


Your shift lever should be able to be tightened, even if not, as long as the bike goes into gear than its doing its job, if it grinds and jumps out as you say than it is more than likely your shift/selector fork

sounds like the gear selector plate plunger is worn or needs a new spring. on most engines a hollow screw @ 3/4" is accessible from under gear box, take it out and stretch the spring and retry to eliminate possibility.
