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.

SOURCE: Clutch push rod will not depress to engage

go to this http://www.cmsnl.com/yamaha-rt1-19701971_model8356/partslist/A-09.html and then click on "view big image", this will give you a diagram of the clutch etc,, the adjustment (No. 26) may need looking at, or (No.11,12,) have broken.Basically you turn 26 in (clockwise) untill you feel light resistance then back off 1/2 turn (been years since i worked on one of these!) this should give you freeplay, have you just got the bike?, and do you think it has been stripped lately(ie the clutch). PS I am not affiliated with the web site i offered above, just a handy reference for you maybe? cheers

SOURCE: pulled the pin bolt instead of drain plug

Sorry. I'm very certain you can't fix your problem without splitting the case. I would be cautious about running the motor at all. When you removed that bolt those pieces are free to fall down to the bottom of the case to interfere and do damage. Good Luck.

Harley 5 speed hard to shift


Hi Anonymous, and the usual suspects are:
1. Primary chaincase overfilled with lubricant.
2. Clutch dragging slightly.
3. Transmission lubrication to heavy.
4. Shifter pawl return spring bent or broken.
5. Bent shifter rod.
6. Shifter forks sprung.
7. Corners wore off shifter clutch dogs.
Good luck and have nice day.

Transmission will go into 1st, neutral, and 2nd only. Shift lever will not return to primary position stays whereevr you left it. 2001 Harley Sporster 1200


Try lubricating the shifter shaft. You may have to remove the shaft and clean dirt and gunk off the shaft and the bushing it rides in. If that doesn't work, check the return spring on the shift drum. My guess is lubing he shifter shaft will solve your problem.

Shifter lever won't return to the " center " position always. The problem is intermittent and seems to occur more in the heat. I've heard there may be something binding the mechanism....


Follow the shifter reach rod that runs from the shift lever back to a short lever on the transmission. Take the nut off and take the rod loose from this short lever. Then, move the forward like you are going to shift into low gear but don't actually shift the transmission into gear. Feel for the spring tension. Then, move the lever backwards and feel for the spring tension there. Check the shift lever and the reach rod for binding. If you don't feel the spring tension trying to return the lever back to the center, it's likely that the shifter pawl return spring is broken. This spring is what returns the shifter lever back to 'center". But,the temperature of the transmission will not change this. If the spring is broken, it's broken cold or hot. If the spring is good and there is not bind in the linkage, the problem may be in the shifter cam mechanism inside the transmission. Either way, this is an internal issue in the transmission.

Good Luck

The bike is a 2006 Softail Deluxe. When shifting through the gears the shift lever won't return to the standard position. You have to use your foot to bring in position to shift again. Could this be a...


It sounds like a broken shifter pawl spring. This part is inside the transmission and requires a teardown of the transmission. Not a simple job. Harley was having problems with them in the 5- speed transmission back in the '90's but I thought they had gotten that problem solved. There never was a recall as far as I know but I have replaced quite a few shifter pawl shafts. The spring is what returns the shifter back to it's "center" position between shifts. With the transmission in neutral, engine off, use your hand to gently push the shifter down to just before it shifts the transmission. Then let go of the shifter and see if returns back to the "center" position. Make sure the shifter or the shifter rod is not binding in any manner. If it will not return to center, I think this is your problem.

Good Luck

It sounds like the end of the shifting shaft has broke loose, it is a welded joint, If you can grab the shifter with your hand and feel that thing slip in there, up and down,that might be the problem, but splitting that case, ugh, total rebuild.Too bad you can't get to it through the clutch. Hope this helps.moz-screenshot-1.png
