Sounds like it may be the valve body in the transmission oil pan or it could be your shifter is at fault.

85 honda sabre 1100 on stand in 5 gear and back wheel don't move is it frozen up ?


Is the engine Running? If the engine isn't running then it isn't a problem as you are trying to turn the engine over with the rear wheel, and you would need he Worlds Strongest Man to turn that over on his own. If the engine is running then you have a big problem and need to get it to a mechanics before riding it.

I need 2,3 & 4 gear for Yamaha 1100 special 1982 model


Instructions
    • 1 The gears on a motorcycle run in this order: first, neutral, second, third, fourth and fifth. When you are moving, shifting up from first gear will skip over neutral and shift you right into second gear. The only time that shifting up from first will get you into neutral is when you are not moving.
    • 2 Pull in the clutch lever and tap the gear lever down until it stops. This will signify first gear. Pressing the gear lever down will shift you down one step and pressing it up will shift up one step.
    • 3 Tap the gear lever up one click while still holding in the clutch. This will put the bike into neutral.
    • 4 Start the bike. The bike needs to be in neutral to start.
    • 5 Hold in the clutch lever and tap the shifting lever down to shift to first gear.
    • 6 Release the clutch slowly and give it just enough gas to get moving.
    • 7 Listen to the motor to know when you need to shift. If the engine is making a low grumbling noise, then it will need to be shifted down. If it is making a high squealing noise, then it needs to be shifted up.

2001 Honda runnung ruff, some back firing


Check spark plugs make sure all four are firing, if they are in good order then I would look at airflow issues. Could also be a problem that some after market pipes cause due to not being installed properly so when slowing down excess fuel in pipes comes back towards engine ignites and creates backpressure therefore you get a backfire this also happens if there is a long hesitation between shifting gears because it is just like slowing down

Not shifting into passing gear


hi passing gear is actually your transmision drpping down to second gear.if you hit the gas hard.if you hit the gas lightly it will only drop out of overdrive and go into third and not go into passing gear.
