SOURCE: stuck in gear, shift level stuck down

it happened twice to me so far (700 miles and 2700 miles). You can absolutely use roadside assistance. I did last time. I had the dealer come 2 hours away to get it. I **** to Ducati NA first. It cost over $1k to fix the first time because they said that there was some damage from the spring. I don't know what the bill came to the second time. You definately should notify ducati NA ( I assume that you are in the USA?) to notify them of the problem and your dissapointment to be sure that they oversee the repair and expedite parts and service at your dealer. From what I gathered, the shifter lever is over extending on downshifts. The mechanism needs adjustment (the stops as it was explained to me) so it doesn't continue to brake the return spring. The service manager at my dealer explained that Ducati has a new method of repairing the problem that is supposed to prohibit it from happening again. They are not too quick to call it a technical service bulletin (TSB), but that is what it looks like to me.

SOURCE: automatic transmission is stuck in 2nd gear (limp mode)

most newer vehicles  have transmission control modules,that go to a default of 2nd or 3rd gear when they go bad!  I had a 91 plymouth stuck in 3rd gear because of this module! could be your problem!    when mine went out, it smelled like something electrical burned inside the the passenger cabin! I would check all the electrical connections on the transmission first    good luck

SOURCE: honda vt 750 backfires

First check all spark plugs(NGK are a good brand) / HT leads / plug caps. Secondly, Check that the valves are properly gapped - if they are tight they will leak the cylinder gases past the valve(s) and this will cause a misfire. A losse or leaking manifold will also. if you have aftermarket pipes then it may need to be rejetted to suit. If you got them at a dealer they will know the right jets. I couldnt find an english manual but here is a german on that may help with diagrams etc... Good luck. Rate if good.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: i have a 1996 kx 250 that will not select 4th gear

Selecter forks could be damaged, gear shift shaft bent, return spring faulty, clutch dragging maybe! Try rocking it backwards and forwards engine off and see if you can find that gear! Good Luck - The Yeti

Pushed started my 06 Honda trx450r now it makes a grinding / ratchet sound when idling or when you ride it have I done something to the gears in the trans?

Either the starter gear is staying stuck in the flywheel or the synchronizers in the trans got damaged while pushing it off. Possibly the clutch basket was warped too

Why wont my 1990 Honda xr 200 shift into gear?

I am afraid it is more than likely beyond repair .and the complete gear train will have to be replaced. Perhaps a junk yard replacement is the best way to go.

Try quickly, partially releasing the clutch lever. This works on a honda. Nobody knows why bikes do this but they do.

Hi, Stelthmail and the usual suspects are:
1. Clutch not disengaging.
2. Bent shift shaft.

While riding i just changed into third gear when my back wheel locked, now cant select any gear.cr250

Sounds like a couple of bent shift forks. The engine will need to be torn down to get to the gears and shift forks.

Rapid popping/crackling noise in xr80

a four stroke will pop and backfire under decelleration when it is lean, or not enough fuel. (Jetting too small in the carburator) But, look at the spark plug for color, white is too lean, black is too rich, and chocolate is just right. Make sure the air filter is good and clean. And lastly... have the valves been adjusted?
