Has the bike been dropped on the shifter side??? Has someone kick hard on the shifter leaver???There is a shifting rod the is under the side cover. If if is bent??? It will not shift like it should. You can pull this rod out when you take the side cover off, and straighten the rob back with a hammer. The rod has to be straight to shift proper.

The gearbox does not need to be relpaced. The bike has a bent shift fork. The engine comes out then gets a complete tear down to get to the bad fork. This will probably cost $1200 or so. Call a dealer and get an estimate. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

Maybe not your answer but.If the bike has sat around for a while,the clutch plates can stick together.Not all,but some.This makes gear selection hard and as you describe,once things warm up,it gets better.When I said about sitting around,I meant for a period of a few months or so at one time.Hope this helps

Can only select 1st neutral an 2nd gear


Hi Meihana and the usual suspects are:
1. Clutch dragging slightly.
2. Primary chaincase overfilled with lubricant.
3. Corners wore off shifter clutch dogs.
4. Shifter return spring bent or broken.
5. Bent shifter rod.
6. Shift lever is loose on the shifter shaft.
7. Shifter forks sprung.
8. Shifter pawl needs adjusting.
9. Heel/toe shifter coming in contact with the floorboard.
10. Transmission oil too heavy.

Hi, Gary you may need to overhaul your transmission shifting forks and or drum for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike 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.

Gear selector into 1st gear fine into 2nd gear having to take foot off peg to change gear it is the same through to 6th and back down again, gear change is smooth just far to much space on lever...


If gear selection is difficult it would likely be badly set clutch or a bent gear selector fork. Major strip and repair! If it is slack but easy to select gears then first check that the gear lever or linkage if it has one is tight on the shaft and not sloppy, nine times out of ten this is the answer. If not then it could be slack in the selector system, shims usually being the culprit. Expensive! Hope it is the lever....

Poor gear selection. Selecting neutral between 2nd and 3rd.Occasionally unable to select 1st and 2nd gear.This bike has asidecar, I have owned it for one week and it has been standing for 1year. I suspect...


i agree, sounds like the clutch is dragging, fairly common when not been used for some time..adjustment / lubrication should do the trick..good luck..

Gear selection


You have a bent shift fork. To replace the fork the engine will need to be removed then torn completely down to about 75 different parts in order to replace the bad fork. This is not a do-it-yourself kind of job. Some special tools are needed and you need to know what you are looking for. I hate to be the bearer of the bad news, but that's what is going on.

The engine isn't fixed, but I hope you can rate this solution as a " FixYa" to the nature of the problem. Thanks!
