Sounds like a bent shift fork or two. Replacing the bad shift forks is major surgery and is NOT recommended for the inexperienced mechanic. Several special tools are needed. The top end and gearbox get totally torn down just to get to the shift forks. This is a very expensive repair, guessing $2100 or so at the dealers. Bummer. Contact a few dealers to cofirm my view of the problem and the probable repair cost. The shift forks move left and right as the shift drum is rotated when you lift or push down on the shift pedal.

Where can i get a diagram online for a 92 vigor auto trans i want to know how to take gears out to change selector fork for fourth gear


You probably won't find one. In an automatic transmission you cannot just simply remove gears or change the selector fork (especially because there isn't one). Everything needs to be there or it won't work at all.

Buying a 1988 vfr400


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Most used 400s are ridden hard eitheras a starter bike or forced to max out playing catchup with biggerbikes. But unless abused, they tend to have longer usable life than thebigger ones. For a VFR400 (NC24), areas that would need your attention/check would be:
  • was it imported to Australia by Honda or is it a gray bike? If it is a gray bike, then it would most likely be a Japanese domestic market/model that has a 180 km/h (110 mph) restriction;
  • rear suspension - the NC24 was one of the first production bikes with Pro-Arm single-sided swingarm;
  • listen closely to the "whine" sound from the engine. It should sound healthy not raspy. This is specially true for VFRs because the camshaft are driven by straight cut gears. This model does not use a timing chain or timing belt.
Common areas to check:
  • condition/level of the engine oil. An oil change would do no harm;
  • brake pads (front & rear);
  • carbs and tank condition, A rebuilt/clean is a wise action;
  • sparkplug check/replacement. Note the color/condition of the ends of the plugs;
  • valve check/adjustment;
  • electrical system check which includes battery/terminals, major connectors (high amperage), regulator, lights, switches;
  • chain and sprocket. If adjusted against the stops, might be time for a replacement of the set;
  • fork oil seal.
Even if there are somethingsyou feel like needing work, the general judge wold be how you likeriding the bike. Your body, sense of balance and riding style woulddictate which if ever would need priority work/replacement/checkingover.

Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
