    Have the same problem. I have tried to tighten the bolt but that didn't work. In fact it got worse. Now it is difficult to get the gears to engage. I was told to remove the primary or to take everything out of the transmission to fix it. Is there somewhere I can find a manual for the transmission?

To remove that arm, the inner primary must come off, but try this first:
About 75% of the time, just replacing that allen screw will solve the problem. Don't just tighten it, replace it. Make sure the arm is slid all the way on the splines. The screw usually doesn't loosen, it stretches.

You must pull both inner and outer primary, then the top cover to the tranny. After all of this has been removed, you can get to the shifter cam and pawls, and replace. I have done a few of these. The splines wear down and then just simply turn back and forth.

Once that arm gets loose you are done for, you might get away tightening it but you are best off replaceing it yes the primary has to be removed and the starter needs to be un fastened at the starter shaft and at the starter where it fastens to the tranny but when your done the trouble is gone and the shifter fixed

Where is the linkage spring for a 02 Harley Davidson softail because my shifter don't move after being pushed down or pulled up


Hi Frankie, you could have a shifter pawl spring issue or a loose shifter rod lever in between the transmission and the inner primary all of which can be resolved by leaving transmission in frame.

My 1999 fxstb night train will start but wont gears engage


If the gears will not engage check to see if the gear shifter linkage from the foot pedal to the arm that goes down behind the primary moves. It that all moves and the arm is snug on the shifter arm behind the primary you likely have a broken shifter arm assembly. These arms fail where they are welded to the pawl mechanism inside the transmission. If it is indeed broken you will have to pull the complete primary, clutch etc and the bearing race on the mainshaft and then the cover off of the transmission and pull the clutch release cover etc off and then pull the transmission cassette from the transmission case and then you can access and replace the shifter arm/pawl assembly.

If you mean the shifter arm that is attached to the shifter shaft that exits the transmission behind the primary case then if you cannot loosen and remove the allen socket screw in the shifter arm and work the arm off of the shaft and another arm back onto the shaft etc then you will have to remove the primary inner case and outer cover etc.

My super glide won't downshift all the time


Check the integrity of the shifter parts from the foot pedal to the shifter arm that goes down behind the primary case. If all of this is connected and not extremely loose check to see if the shifter arm is loose on the shifter shaft down in behind the primary case. If that is loose you might be able to tighten it and/or install a new screw with a 1/4 long ball extension adapter. If the splines are damaged that will not correct the situation and you will need to remove the primary case to access for further repairs. If the arm seems to be tight on the shaft and it is turning, moving, without shifting gears you could have a broken weld on the shifter shaft to pawl mechanism and will have to remove the transmission cassette assembly to access tit for replacement etc. HOWEVER in this case you should have no shifting at all and if you can shift but sometimes not you more likely have a shift drum or shift fork or shifter (dog) ring problem which will also require transmision cassette removal, inspection and repairs.

Can't get inner primary cover off. It's a dry primary if that could make a difference. All bolts are out as well as starter.


Hi Anonymous, the mainshaft of transmission could be rusted to inner primary bearing. Try some chemical rust remover. Good luck

I have a 1999 softtail how do i change the stator


Drain the primary fluid. Remove the outer primary cover. The stator is behind the compensating sprocket in the front of the inner primary. Increase the slack in the clutch cable at the adjuster. Lock the primary drive with the locking tool (may be purchased from Harley or Drag Specialties if you don't have one). Unbolt the primary chain adjuster from the inner primary. Remove the comp nut and nut holding the clutch basket on the trans mainshaft (this nut has right hand threads).Remove the primary drive as an assembly.Remove the rotor. It is held on magnetically. Unplug the voltage regulator from the stator. Remove the 4 bolts holding the stator to the engine case, and throw them away. You will need new stator bolts to install the new stator. Do not reuse the old ones. Remove the stator. Installation is the reverse of removal. Some models also require the removal of the inner primary in order to remove the stator. If this is required, replace all the seals in the inner primary while you have it off. A service manual will be a great help if you do this job yourself. Torque specs are rather high for reinstalling the primary drive, so you may want to consider having a shop do the job. Good luck!

My 2005 road king shift shaft on my transmission seems stripped


Could quite well be OR the screw on the shift arm is loose. If you can tighten it with a ling 1.4 inch ball Allen okay but if not you will need to pull the primary cover and the inner primary case to get at the shift shaft and if it is stripped you will need to pull the transmission cassette to get the shifter pawl and shaft assembly out. The weld on the pawl assembly alos breaks and then when the shifter arm turns the shaft the pawl doe not turn. This also requires transmission disassembly to repair.

Shifter diagram


What part is loose? If it is the arm on the shift rod you might be able to get a long 1/4 ball allen in behind the primary case and tighten it or get a new bolt installed and tightened but if the arm or the shaft serrations are worn you will need to pull the inner and outer primary to install a new arm and pull the trans gear set out to change the shift rod.
