Wish I could see the bike but the following may help. Remove the shift pedal and look at the mounting hole. It should have groves in it which align with groves on the outside on the shifting shaft. If the groves on the shaft and / or the pedal are messed up, ( stripped ), then you need to decide what repair will work. Try re-mounting the pedal on the shaft and see if tightening the mount bolt extra tight will work. If not, you could pin the shift lever to the shaft. I don't know what bike this is but you probably have more serious problems than just a stripped shift lever or stripped shaft.......

...... A shift drum pin may have been sheared. The shift lever return spring and / or shift lever drum spring may have been broken or knocked out of place. The shift lever positioning C ring may have broken allowing the shift shaft to be out of place and not catching the shift pins. These are relatively minor problems to fix but the likelyhood is that you now have a bent shift fork......

...... A bent shift fork requires the engine be removed and torn down to about 75 pieces then reassembled with new shift fork(s). I have done this repair many times as a bike shop mechanic. Some special tools are needed and a good bit of knowhow. This is not a repair for the beginner. How about you take the bike to a dealer and ask them to just glance at the shifter and see what they think. It won't cost you to just ask for their ideas on the problem. Please post how you come out on this. I am curious what you find.

97 roadking wont go into gear while engine is not running and in neutral, starter just spins


The starter clutch needs to be replaced. An alternator sgop will usually rebuild these for 1/2 of a new one. .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. Good Luck.

The neutral lite wont stay on , the foot lever is not allowing it to go to neutral


The neutral light won't stay on because the gearbox isn't in neutral. try rocking the bike backwards and forwards, kick the gears down as many time as you can (at least 6) and then try moving the gear lever up one until the bike moves freely backwards and forwards. Your bike should then start. It would be easier to identify any problems if you let us know the make and model of the bike.

How to drive?


you can ride the cluthch on a bike un like a car you wont hurt it its oil lubricated constantly, sitting on the bike pull the clutch in with your left hand and click the left foot lever down in to 1st, then learn how to click it back up 1 half movement in to neutral. the neutral light will come on sfter the bike enters neutral. in first gear give the throttle on the right hand a squeeze and pull the clutch in with your left hand put foot gear selector down in to 1 st and begin to release clutch slowly. hold on as bike will engage may be jerky balance yourself! when you get moving stop! by pulling the clutch in and the hand brake as you close the throttle to stop! practice your take off many times some where safe! when you get your balance in 1st gear pick up speed and begin shifting the foot gear selector up in to 2nd gear and practice closing the throttle and breaking to a safe stop. gears are generslly 1st down 1 click 2345 and6th all up from there and neutral is 1 half a click up from 1st between 2nd gear. And dont put it in gear with the kick stand down t may stall on you

hope this helps

I have an 1987 cbr 600 that wont shift out of neutral. Bike sat for about a year and it shifted fine before that. ????


There is a very very good chance the clutch plates have fused together.When they sit around and not move they can bond together.If you have the tools and gear,you can pull the clutch apart,separate all the plates,give them a clean and put it back together.In EXACTLY the same order as they came apart.Not flipped.Not turned around,but in exactly the same order.
Now.If you take it to a bike shop,they WILL charge the hell out of you.Good chance they will hit you up for new clutch plates etc.If you can walk in and know what job you want done,and the REASON you want the job done,you are miles ahead.Don't get caught out!!! most will try and rip you off.It is an easy fix!
Before you go there.Will the bike shift into gear,if is not running?If so,what I said above stands.If not,Come back to me.
When trying to put it into gear with the motor NOT running,rock the bike back and forth.Just to see if it does go into gear
Hope this helps

I just got the bike and it seems to me that there is no 5th gear. I can ride 75-80 mph no problem, but I don't think I am engaging a 5th gear. Any advise?


When you are in top gear driving a Honda, you can lift up the shifter pedal with your foot with out pulling in the clutch. The pedal is actually not engaging or doing any thing and will give no resistance. If you are not sure if you are an in top gear You just lift up on the pedal with out engaging the clutch If it moves up freely you know you are in top gear. If you are driving and apply light upward pressure on the pedal and there is resistance , you have another gear to go.

Transmision fault


You have a bent shift fork (or two). The bend in the fork will not move the slider gear properly and causes the lockup. Expensive to fix. The engine gets a complete tear-down in order to get to the gears and shift forks.

2008 HONDA cbr 125 Popping out of 5th Gear


Only three things would cause the problem. 1) a slightly beny shift fork, 2) a shift index wheel loose, 3) the foot shift lever needs to be adjusted.

The most likely source is the shift lever needing to be lower. Once you are in 5th gear you move your foot to the top iof the pedal in preparation for a downshift. At high speed your entire body is leaning forward FOOT INCLUDED. Chances are that enough pressure is on the pedal to move the slider gear out of position and thus out of 5th gear.

I hope I am right in the solution. Best wishes.

Yz 125 2001 stays in gear when clutch pulled in


Lose the Honda transmission oil. It may have swollen the cork on the friction plates. Go with 10w40 in the gearbox. Any major brand; Mobil, Shell, Quaker State, Pennzoil, etc.. Try the new oil and give the cork a week to shrink back down > if they will. You may need to put in a new set of plates.
