Replaced starter on 93 softail and started right up then just clicking. Took derby off and lined gears and started and been starting! What could be problem? Been starting since I did that!


You may have damage to one tooth on the ring gear and was unlucky that this tooth lined up onto the pinion gear and stopped the solenoid from pulling in fully. Also, the bush in the primary housing cover may have worn and has a lip on it which can catch the shaft when it pulls in. I have got this fault a few times on elderly bikes. If the fault has cleared, I would not go looking unless it happens again. If it does, rock the bike in gear to more the ring gear and if it works straight afterwards, it is more than likely the ring gear.

Legend tt cuts out when put in gear


My bike cut out after a short time when the choke was released when warm. I changed the crank position sensor and did all relevant checks. took it to a Triumph dealer who took three weeks to repair the bike. They said that it turned out to be a perished carb' diaphragm which let the needle drop when as vacuum decreased when the revs dropped as the choke was returned.

What's your problem?1995 yamaha virago 1100 that sometimes you you put into gear and immediately dies


The Clutch on some bikes will disengage the starter motor. Yamaha will not allow you to engage gear when the side stand is down. Hope this gives you some idea

How to move CX 650 with broken clutch cable stuck in first gear


Either the tiny shift spring under the rear cover is broken or the shift linkage gear next to it is out of position. If this is the case there is no way to put the bike in neutral without removing the engine and taking off the rear cover to fix the shift linkage ( first gear lock up can happen if the shift gear pops out of place during reassembly. Always check your shifter is working correctly before bolting down the rear cover.).
If your only problem was a broken clutch cable you could shift the bike to neutral with the motor off and push it around on it's wheels. If the problem is inside the motor and it has to be moved right away put a furniture dolly under the rear wheel and keep a block of wood handy to place under the side stand to park the bike until it can be taken off the dolly.

I Pull in the clutch handle but cannot shift the bike into gear. How do I tell if this is a clutch problem or a transmission problem?


When did this problem start? has the bike been sitting for any long period of time? any background on the bike leading to your problem would help.
questions
1. will the bike shift into gear not running all gears check it first put the bike on the center stand and rotate the rear wheel and go through the gears shifting if that is ok your good
2. shifting into gear bike running does not want to go?
grinds or lurches forward? problems from sitting for long months or yrs. sometimes when a motorcycle sits the clutch plates that are in oil will act like they are glued together ans some time can be freed after the engine oil has warmed up, in worse case you have to remove the r/h clutch cover and remove the clutch pressure plate and separate each of clutch plates and reassemble it.

Kick start is jammed


Put the bike in 3rd, 4th or 5th gear, the higher the better. Sit on the bike, with your hand off the clutch lever, and rock the bike back and forth to rotate the clutch hub. This might free up the lever. You will need to drain the oil and remove the right side casing to see and service the kick starter. If I recall correctly, there is a spring clip that allows the kick gear to engage the clutch hub. The piece could be broken, weak or out of position.

Please rate this answer. Thanks Shay!
