Question about 2008 Honda VT 750 Shadow
Everytime i shift into 1st gear fom neutral it make an extremely lonf CLANK! noise, louder then ever before. Also when riding in first gear, slowly, i hear some loose things in the box, rattling around as if sand was in there and it kept being blasted into the metal covering. I am having trouble shifting it into 2nd gear more often now, it will shift into neutral from first. from 2nd to 3rd geat > i shift from second to third, it will go into third but the it will shift it back into second, I will start going some 1 or 2 seconds in third then downshift in second tourquing my motor very hard. I am more concerned about the loose, i think it is something loose, thing or things in the gear box. it is very hard to explain but it sounds like a spring or something very hard hase come loose and it keeps on bouncing around and in between the gear wheals. I am in dire need of help, i cant take it to the dealer because, well i dont have money. please someone...HELP!
Sorry but it's not loose, you have a bad shifting fork. The first gear fork is going or gone which causes the mis-shifting. You are hearing the clutch basket most likely. With the backlash in the gearbox you can get a noise coming from the clutch hub coming lose from the primary drive gear it is attached to. I also believe there is a chain for the harmonic balancer that needs to be adjusted. It makes a nasty noise and sounds like the engine is almost grinding when it does it. The noise will go away under accelleration.

Hi Turtlefury, I had a similar problem and the two nuts that hold the shift selector cam bracket inside the transmission cover had worked loose. So, the lever was not selecting properly and there was a lot of extra free play in the gear lever rotation.
