First thing to do is to check the shifter pawl adjustment. If you do not have a service manual then you need to get one. It will explain how to adjust shifter pawl and save you money on many other problems down the road.

There is a little set screw that stops it from coming out. remove the set screw then I believe you have to unscrew it.

I would check my Clutch before going any further. Sounds to me like it is not engaging or possibly have you checked the rear chain?

SOURCE: Harley Road King motor turned off

after checking the kill switch on the handle bars and the key. It could be a simple wire or even a computter problem check to see if you have spark if it even turns over, without knowing if it fuel injected or carb its hard to give an exact find or fix. If your not formiluar with the road kings working I would suggest you take it to a harley mech.

Hi, H650, working fine, then erratically just stop, seems electrical problem, side stand switch were suspicious, took it off and bridged the wires, the same problem, Thx


Hi, Tamas the ignition circuit cut-off system comprising of the side stand switch, clutch switch and neutral switch has the following functions:
a. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is up, but the clutch lever is not pulled.
b. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the clutch lever is pulled, but the side stand is still down.
c. It cuts the running engine when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is moved down.
Periodically check the operation of the ignition circuit cut-off system according to the following tests.
With the engine turned off:
1. Move the side stand down.
2. Make sure that the engine stop switch is set to "RUN"
3. Turn the key to "ON".
4. Shift the transmission into the neutral position.
5. Push the start switch if the engine does not start the neutral switch may be faulty.
With the engine still running:
6. Move the side stand up.
7. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
8. Shift the transmission into gear.
9. Move the side stand down if the engine does not stall you may have a faulty side stand switch.
After the engine has stalled:
10. Move the side stand up.
11. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
12. Push the start switch if the engine does not start you may have a faulty clutch switch.
This check is most reliable if performed with a warmed-up engine.

Transmission ?


My first guess is that the gears are engaging, but if it's the original 12 year old clutch, it might not be grabbing.
Pull primary cover, put into first and try to pull forward while someone is watching clutch to see if it's locking up ok.

My dad has a difficult time finding neutral on his 99 road king classic. is there a way to adjust?


I have a 99 FLHT. The issues are the same with finding neutral. This was because of a gear design change in the tranny to supposedly make the trans quieter.
So that said, do this, while in 1st, clutch pulled in, rev (blip throttle) motor slightly with upwards pressure on the shift lever. This blip breaks the friction between the plates in the clutch pack taking the pressure off the trans gears which helps get it into neutral.
BTW, this issue was present in my 1990 Softail as well, what worked then still works now.

There's only two things that could possibly make contact with the top cover and cause any problem. One is the shifter pawl and the other is neutral switch.

The shifter pawl return springs are notorious for breaking in the five speed transmissions. I've replaced a load of them. Take your foot shifter pedal and lift up on it until the transmisson just tries to shift. Then go back to the center position and press the lever down until the transmission just tries to shift. Does the spring pressure feel the about the same in both directions. If not, the shifter pawl return spring is broken.

With the top off, you can inspect the small spring on the sfifter pawl itself. See if that spring is broken. This is about the only thing that I know of in a five speed that will cause shifting problems. But then, I never claimed to know it all.

Good Luck
Steve

Transmission went out


This is internal gear separation. this can happen when the transmission is either old or, hasn't been serviced in a while. the gear ratio can become unstable during long term driving and, if not serviced properly, it will fail. this type of high efficiency trany can be quite fragile considering the age of this motor vehicle. i suspect many seal issues as well. i would rebuild as soon as possible.
