How to stop the transmission noise in 5th gear on a 2007 HD Ultra Classic?


The 5th gear noise with the 6 speed is legendary!

1st and 5th are straight cut gears. 2nd,3rd,4th, and 6th are helical cut gears. Straight cut are stronger so Harley put them in the most popular gears.

Some people swear that either Mobil Syn 75/90 or Redline Shockproof 85/140 helps.

Baker transmissions make a F6F kit that has a helical cut gear, and a thicker trapdoor to handle the increased side loading because of it, but it ain't cheap!

How do i on a motorcycle go to first gear from 5th


hi, if when you start your bike you press the gear lever down to go to 1st from neutral and then pull it back up to go to 2nd,3rd,4th and 5th then the only way to get back into first gear is to press the gear lever down 4 times to get it back into 1st gear their is no quicker way to do this you have to work your way back down the gears.

if your coming to a stop quick then just pull the clutch in and keep pushing the lever down until it dont push down any further it will only go down 1 gear at a time so you will need to push it down 4 times but you dont need to count you can just keep pressing it down the gears until it dont go down any more then you know this is first, you need to keep the clutch in when doing this.

how ever if your slowing down is more gradual then what you can do is go from 5th down to 4th then let engine slow the bike down then when the revs drop down change down to 3rd and so on until you get ot 1st gear.

if your coming to a stop quick say at lights or junction then if the bike is in 5th gear then you can change down the gears once the bike has stopped just hold the clutch in when you stop and keep tapping the gear lever down until you feel that its not going down any more gears this way you know its in 1st without having to cound down the gears, their id no quicker way of going down the gears to get to 1st.

i hope i have read your question right and gave you the answer you was looking for if i got the question wrong then please explain then i can assist you further ok

My Harley 883 Sportster suddenly became stuck in 5th gear.


More than likely the shifter pawl has broken. Breaking in 5th gear is kind of unusual however, they usually break between first and second.

You'll have to remove the outer primary cover to look at the shifter pawl. It's partially covered by the clutch assembly.

3rd gear har d to put in


Im not sure how you ride your bike but if you "beat on it shifting without cluch sometimes the fork in the transmission gets bent...this is the only reason that would cause hard shifting besides wrong gear lube

Gets stuck between 4th and 5th


The shift rail fork ends are likely worn. There are fork contact/wear pads that ride in the gear shift sliding collars, and over time, or from low gearbox oil levels/insufficient lubrication, these pads wear, allowing "slop" and preventing the gears from engaging fully. I'd check the brngs, synchro rings and the dog clutch teeth, too. If you see metal/brass or aluminum shavings in the case drain plug, oil or on the bottom of the gearcase...that isn't a good sign. This sounds like a trans issue, not a clutch issue.

While riding, the 4th and 5th gears do not engage promptly when you clutch and shift the gear. It sort of goes into neutral as one disengages the clutch and accelerate and then falls in place (ie 4th or...


This behavior is the symptom that your clutch plates are getting worn out. Since power is transmitted from the cam shaft to the front sprocket (smaller dia) is better at lower gears but once the rpm increases the clutch plates do not catch up with the cams rotation, hence slipping at higher gears & in between 4th & 5th gears the pulling power of the engine seems to go to neutral before engaging again. Check your clutch plates as well as the sprocket-chain- rear sprocket for wearing out of the gear teeth & replace if required. You will get back full power & acceleration as when the bike was new.............sodeep

False neutrels between 4th and 5th and 5th and 6th gears


shifting forks are all out maybe, but make sure your clutch is working good and fully dissengaging , if clutch is good, you need tranny repairs

Feels like 4th gear slipping


Sounds like the clutch plates may need replacing..
To test for a worn clutch: Release the clutch from a stop in 2nd gear as if starting out in first. With a good clutch the engine will die. If the clutch is worn, the bike will move forward and then lug as the clutch engages. This can be done at home. Follow directions in the shop manual. An air impact wrench is helpful for removing the clutch basket nut,

Good luck
