If you have repositioned the shifter arm correctly and it is not contacting something it is possible that you do not have the cover on correctly. There are, I believe, 2 dowel pins in back of the cover where it contacts t the crankcase if these dowel pins were not seated properly when you tightened the cover bolts it would cause the cover to misalign where the shaft goes through it and bind the shaft from rotating. Re check the cover installation.

    It wouldn't shift up or down until I turned it on! Then it would shift again while not running. The problem was I didn't start the bike after putting it back together. Very strange for it to work out this way.
    Now I have a new question? I already posted.

SOURCE: how do you change the clutch on a 06 gsxr 750

It would probably be best to take the bike to a reputable mechanic and have them change it. It is not a difficult job but some specialist tools might be needed.

Get yourself a repair manual and find out what it says, but I think you are correct, the return spring is either broken or it has slipped. Try this site for a freebie manual:

20002 Road king will not fully engauge into 1st gear

Check the position of the shifter arm. It should be sitting just behind the front bolt on the transmission cover plate. If it is not then the shifter arm has likely been loose and rotated on the shifter shaft.

My 2001 suzuki gsxr 750 won't downshift all of a

Your shifter cam bolt has backed out, this is a common problem on earlier GSXR's. Happened twice on my 2000, both times during race weekends.

Stop riding the bike and shifting at all and do the following repair:

Remove clutch cover - you'll drain some oil so make sure you have a drip pan underneath

Remove the 5 the clutch housing plate bolts - careful as they have pretty stiff springs behind them providing torsion

Remove all the clutch plates - make sure you keep the same order and re-install the same way; matter of fact if you have never replaced your clutch plates, do it along with this repair.

Once the clutch case is basically empty, you will see at the lower left a small assembly that looks a bit like a tuning fork, at the end of the shifter shaft. There is also a cam there with rounded cogs. There is a 8mm or 10 mm hex head bolt that holds this cam, and I'm sure it has backed out and is causing the cam and shifter to not engage the gears properly.

Remove the cam bolt. Spray some compressed air or even a light spray of brake cleaner in the threaded area where the bolt you just removed is. Make sure the threads are clean and dry.

Place the cam bolt and assembly back in its position, and take some RED loctite to the shifter cam bolt threads. Make sure to torque the bolt to specifications, I think it's 24 or 28 nm.

Let the bolt set for 24-8 hours, then reassemble the clutch and replace the clutch cover gasket. Top off the oil and go riding.

Hi, i have a 1996 gsxr 750 srad and was wondering where the sensor for the speedo was?

The speedometer sensor is located in the countershaft sprocket cover. This is the cover at the lower left rear of the engine. If you are having speedometer problems, be sure and check the speedometer rotor that is on the end of the countershaft. They have come loose and caused problems.

I have A 2000 zx600j and I took off the rear tire to change the sprocket. My mistake was doing the back before the front sprocket and I've already cut the chain. Now I'm having a heck of a time breaking...

You will need an impact gun to break it loose, how are you holding the sprocket still, any moving absorbs the torque you apply and stops the breaking loose of the sprocket.

My speedometer on my 05 gsxr 600 stopped working what do I need to check before buying a new ome

when you say stoped workig do you mean no digital desplay at all when you turn on the ignition, does this bike have an aftermarket gear indicator,? remove the screen and check at the rear of the clock for any broken wires, have you recently had a new front sprocket fitted, if so it is possible you have desturbed the speedomiter drive which is located in the sprocket cover secured by an8mm bolt check the wire conection from the drive follow the wire up you will find a plastic conector, check that it is joined corectly by pushing top and bottom together, it may well be that this unit is burned out a resistance must be found at this unit using a multimeter.also behind the case located on the front sprocket is the drive gear this is secured in the gearbox shaft with a 8mmm alun bolt check for security if the bolt is loose the drive will spin on the shaft and speed will not be recognised,

1998 gsxr 750 speedo problem

if the speedo doesn't work through a cable then it probably works on a electronic sensor.try and trace the wire from the back of the speedo to the sensor and replace the sensor.will more than likely be around the front wheel area or the gearbox.

Make sure the cable didn't slip out of it's detent. If it isn't placed exactly where it should be, you gon't get proper tension on the clutch plate.
