Question about 1989 Honda VT 1100 C Shadow

1 Answer

My 1989 VT1100 jumps out of 3rd gear?

It is either a broken gear tooth or a bent shift fork? Does anyone have a diagram and where do I buy the parts, once I figure out which one it is?

    I also have the same problem. According to a dealer I contacted you would need to strip the whole engine (which is costly) or find a replacement engine. To mee this sounded a bit drastic, so I wonder if anyone can confirm this scenario or if there is a simpler solution

A broken gear will make a clicking noise each revolution of the gear. It will not cause the bike to slip out of gear. The problem sounds like a mildly bent shift fork.

1989 Ford F-150 4.9L 300 inline 6 cylinder 5 speed stuck in 3rd Gear? any solutions


If your clutch master cylinder is good in all other gears: you can disengage and, shift the other gears with the engine not running and, you have the correct amount of clutch fluid
in your clutch master cylinder: to release the clutch:
you have a broken 5th gear syncro and, a bent fork
remove the transmission and, when you remove the shift cover you will
see the problem; you must drain the transmission case remove any metal debris; remove the gear set and, replace the syncro...the fork can probably be
re-straightened use clean, new case oil when you reassemble the transmission.

1978 suzuki dr 370 motorcyle just started having a problem. When in neutral the transmission makes a popping type noise intermittenly. when this occurs it tries to jump into gear. ant idea


The popping noise is gear dogs trying to engage a gear. You did not say that the bike doesn't shift smoothly so I would tend to rule out a bent shift fork. The neutral stopper pin may be worn or the stopper spring or other springs may be broken (see diagram). Another possibility is a broken stationary gear circlip which would let the gear wander a bit on the shaft. most the parts are available at Babbitt's.
