The main drive gear (mainshaft 5th) has 2 needle bearings pressed into the inside bore. I have seen these move. If the inboard bearing drifted out a little, it may be contacting the gear next to it when the mdg relaxed after loostening that tight nut. I doubt if you can see it, with the shifter clutch blocking your view. I would go to the right side and remove the throwout bearing cover, then remove the allen screws on the trans end plate. Pound on the left side of the mainshaft with a dead blow hammer and yank the whole gearbox out and you should see the problem. A long 2 jaw puller and a little heat can be used to remove the bearing race from the left side of the mainshaft. Check to see if all the retaining rings are in their grooves between fixed gears. Check that all sliding gears slide without resistance along the shafts. You did nothing wrong locking up the gears the way you did, it is a common practice. If those needle bearings are indeed the problem, replace them, don't just drive them back in. Green Loctite on the outside of the new bearings should fix you up. If it comes to this, replace the large ball bearing the mdg rides in because it will be compromised when removing the mdg, if it wasn't already.

I would suggest that you change the gears that are binded together, This could mean it heated up and welded itself together which would mean its also warped. If you think it may still be good, spray it down with WD40 wait a few minutes and pry it apart with a bladed screw driver, If the gears are black then do no use them get replacement gears, I'm sure you could find a spare parts close by of if not order a transmission full kit from harley.

    If you want to reduce tension, take it to a machine shop and have it grinded a bit or use a spacer (washer) between them you will need to have the washer ground a bit as so it wont be to thick)

    I hope that helped i didnt really understand if you mean that the gears are binded or its binding ?


  • Rishi Roshan Ali Dec 11, 2008

    as per my last comment you can also try removing one or two of the clutches between the gears or increasing the amount of clutches between the gears.

Hi Anonymous, If you are comfortable with the clutch adjustment, I would remove the transmission top cover and inspect the shifter cam channels for flat spots, shifting fork shaft for wear, shifting fork roller hats for damage, shifter pawl for correct adjustment, also binding shift linkage.

I am trying to remove outer housing around front chain and clutch housing,to get to forward shift lever to replace it. do i need a pulley puller for the front chain sprocket.all this on a 1993 hd fxr


I think you are calling the lever you want by the wrong name. shift lever is on the outside of primary and there is no need to remove the covers. there is a bolt on shifter-remove it and slide lever of but mark position for installation. Fran [mechanic] if you are talking about rod on trans that goes thru both cases then you will need a puller for the clutch hub assembly. Fran

I have a 1990 FXR that won't shift into lower gears. Will shift up but not down. Any hints on whats wrong and or how much this is going to cost me?


It sounds like your shifter pawl spring is broken. This is more common on the five speed transmissions that anyone would like to admit. It is a major job to replace. You must take the primary drive off the bike, the front belt pulley, and then pull the trapdoor of the transmission with both shafts and their gears out to change the shifter pawl shaft. You may be able to change just the small shifter pawl spring without pulling the guts out of the transmission but I always replace the entire assembly, shaft included.

Good Luck

Needing a service manual for 2004 883 xl. money is tight and I need to split cases to repair shift assembly and shifiting forks


On your Sportster, you don't have to split the cases to repair the shift assembly or the shifter forks. All you have to do it remove the primary drive, (primary chain, engine sprocket, and clutch assembly) and the front belt pulley from the other side.

Then, there are four bolts that hold the access door of the transmission behind the clutch assembly. Remove these bolts and pry the door and both shafts of the transmission out.

I've never seen a problem with the shifting forks in ANY Harley transmission. I may have just been lucky but whenever I worked on transmission shifitng problems, it was always something else. Why do you think you need to pull the transmission. Odds are, your problem is in the shifter pawl. These are notorious for giving problems. Unless of course, you blew second gear trying to speed shift it.

Good Luck
Steve
