Question about 1997 Honda VT 600 C Shadow

1 Answer

First gear clicking loudly while accelerating

I have a 97 Honda Shadow 600 VLX. I am having trouble with launching from a stop. During the process of disengaging the clutch while accelerating, there are some very loud clicks or clunks coming from the gear box. The sounds are very unusual and my instinct is that the gear may be damaged or something. It seems to help if I accelerate very slowly, but still get some clicks. All other gears work smoothly. Any ideas?

Hi Robert, for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix or parts inquiry. If necessary transport your vehicle to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue. Good luck and have a nice day.

SOURCE: 97 honda cbr 600f3 shifting, gears, etc.

It should be 1 down and 5 up. About the 5500rpm at 85... That sounds about right with stock gearing. Let me know if i can help further. Good luck and happy holidays. Jay

Did you do an oil change recently? Sometimes a motor cycles clutch shares the oil with the engine and a different kind of oil then the bike requires will cause the clutch to slip. This happens alot especially if someone switches to some types of synthetic oil when the bike had regular oil before the oil change.

SOURCE: Concerning gear shifting. I have an 86 VT500. I

Don't shift from neutral into first until the engine is at idle or just above idle. NEVER force the shift lever. The shift forks engage into "slider" gears and the dogs on the sliders must mesh into the side of the gear you are shifting into. The "clunk" you hear is the slider engaging a gear that is not moving at the moment. The higher the revs, the louder the clunk. The diagram shows the slider in neutral. Please rate my answer. Thanks!
