I have LT500 ATV 1999 suzuki. When I put it in 1st gear and start to go along jumps into second gear with bang. I think it is a clutch adjustment and I need to know how to adjust it.

    I have LT500 ATV 1999 suzuki. When I put it in 1st gear and start to go along it jumps into second gear with
    bang. I think it is a clutch adjustment and I need to know how to
    adjust it?
    The shifting fork works real good in all the other gears.
    I'm scared it is going to take out second gear the way it goes in.

Dont think its the clutch sounds like a bent shift fork, in first gear starting off the transmission has torque or pressure applied to the first gear set when you let the throttle off (no torque or pressure on tranny) it shifts by its self this is a sign of a bent shift fork hope this helps leave us a rate please

Yes, that should be corrected before you pop a gear tooth. Make sure your linkage is allowing the shift to fully engage.

VW Golf 3 jumping out of gears


Sounds like a stripped reverse gear. And for the second gear probally need a new gear (1st 2nd) and the syncros with a new hub. If too much metal from the gears has already made it's way around in the bearings through the transmission oil you might be looking at a new transmission. The Golf 3 generation had many problems with reverse gears. Sorry to be the one to tell you.

Jumps when I pull away first thing in the morning, no problem when warm (1999 Jetta GL)


the same thing happend to my 1996 jetta trek. when u put it in reverse to start off anywhere its perfectly fine. but when u put it into drive it stalls for a few seconds than jumps.
The transmission is going to go out on you anyday.
mine blew on me about a month when this started happening to me.
i was driving and the car just randomly went into neutral, tried all the gears and all i had was reverse.
BLOWN!

took it to 2 different places to get it fixed, 1st place asked $3500, 2nd place asked $2500.
too much money so we had a family friend put a rebuilt tranny in for $1600.
