2001 Honda VT 1100 C2 Shadow Sabre shifter will not move

I replaced the stator in my motorcycle and it now charges, however, the shift lever will not move. I had to tap repeatedly on the end of the shaft but I never hit it hard. Could I have bent something or what

Hi, Johnny and the usual suspects are:
1. Clutch not disengaging.
2. Bent shift shaft.
3. Shift fork bent or seized.
4. Gear seized on the shaft.
5. Gear positioning lever binding.
6. Shift return springs weak or broken.
7. Shift return spring pin loose
8. Shift mechanism arm spring is broken.
9. Shift mechanism arm is broken.
10. Shift drum is broken.

SOURCE: Won't upshift under load.

In reality, the gearbox was never designed for power shifting. Time is lost in trying to do a power shift with the tranny not willing to cooperate. Give yourself a break and use the clutch. It beats a missed shift every time.

SOURCE: shift shaft replace

Yes. Sad but true. On most late model Honda four stroke singles, the shift shaft turns the shift drum directly, from within the engine cases.

SOURCE: 2004 CRF 100 shift lever seal leak

Yes. Once you remove the engine cover and expose the shaft and seal, carefully pry the old seal out with a small flat blade screwdriver. Apply some grease to the inside diameter of the new seal, slide it over the shift shaft (clean it first) - and press it in place.

Why won't my transmission shift out of park and shifter moves freely ?

Motorcycle has no spark


Is the battery fully charged? They sometimes ship UNCHARGED. Are the battery connections clean and tight?

Is the kill switch in the "kill" position? Is the ignition switch "on"? Is the transmission shifted to Neutral? Is the clutch lever pulled?

Shifter broke


Keep your fingers crossed that it is simply a loose pinch bolt on the shift arm. To check, look closely at the shift shaft end as you move the shifter up and down. If the shift shaft is not moving with the shift lever, the pinch bolt may be loose, or more likely, the splines have worn out on the shifter due to a loose bolt. To fix, grab a 10mm wrench and loosen and remove the pass-through bolt that is on the shift lever and replace the shift lever. I provided a link to a used one on eBay for $15. If the splines on yours are good and the bolt is tight with the shift shaft moving properly, then the internal shift fork is damaged which will require a teardown. 91 Kawasaki EL 250 EL250 Eliminator SHIFT LEVER

My 1998 softail custom won't shift above third gear, and i have a really hard time getting it to shift back down


It could be your shifter pawl in the transmission. But, check for any binding in the long linkage between the shifter and transmission. Disconnect the long connector link at the shifter in the front and check for free movement of the connector and the shifter itself. If that moves freely, then I'd suspect the shifter pawl. You'll see the short lever that connects to the shifter pawl shaft. Make sure that it's tight and not loose on the shaft. If it's loose, the splines are probably worn in the lever and on the shaft as well. Move the lever like it would move to shift to a gear. You should feel spring tension against the movement and it should return to "center" when you let go. If not, the shifter pawl return spring is broken. Usually when this happens, all you have is first and second gear.

Good Luck

Shift lever at transmission stripped. can it be removed and replaced without inner and outer primary removal


No, you must remove the inner primary to replace the shift lever. But, that may not be the end of your problem. Usually, when this happens, the splines on the end of the shifter pawl shaft are too worn to allow even a new lever to tighten up. Simply replacing the lever will only temporarily fix the problem. I fix the problem correctly, you must replace the shifter pawl shaft. This requires a teardown of the transmission. Good Luck.

I put a new shifter on my honda 125cc motorcross and no it will not shift gears. the shifter moves up and down but does not feel like it is shifting gears. what could be happening?


Did your bike shift gears prior to installing the new shift lever? Why did you replace the lever? If the bike was dropped and the shift lever damaged, the shifting mechanism inside the engine may have been damaged as well. This mechanism will probably be on the primary drive side of the engine and you'll probably have to pull the clutch drum to get to it.

Shifter lever broken...


It sounds like you bent the shift fork, or at least the shaft that penetrates the case and holds the shift lever on the outside. If you are certain you are moving the shaft and the bike won't come out of first then you will have to open up the case and see what is bent or broken inside.

Gear shifter does NOT shwitch from park and break


SHIFTER LOCKED IN PLACE

  1. Remove the instrument panel cover below the steering column, then remove the steering column shrouds to gain access to the brake transmission shift interlock (BTSI) solenoid. The solenoid is part of the interlock cable assembly.
  2. Disconnect the wire connector from the rear of the BTSI solenoid.
  3. Insert the ignition key and turn it to the ON position.
  4. With the brakes applied, try moving the shifter out of the PARK position.
    • If the lever now moves freely in and out of PARK, perform the Circuit Test below.
    • If the shift lever still does not move from the PARK position, remove the BTSI solenoid from the shift lever assembly. If the shift lever now moves freely in and out of the park position, the BTSI solenoid is faulty and the interlock cable must be replaced. If the shift lever still does not move from the park position, the problem is in the shift lever assembly or the ignition interlock cassette
