I had bent my shift arm then when i tried to replace i had to move the clamp piece that goes on the transmission so the rubber piece the connects to the rod the goes down there wouldnt rub against the bike...


I fear that whatever bent the arm forced the shifter with a lot of pressure and now, in addition to the bent arm, the bike has a bent shift fork. It is the bent fork that causes the shifting problem. The shift fork is a part of the transmission and is costly to fix. Below is a diagram showing how the shift drum rotates to move the forks left and right to change gears. Check with a Kawasaki shop to confirm my diagnosis. Please rate my answer.tombones49_154.gif

It wont engage in 2nd and 3rd gear


Shift forks are bent or shift rod is bent.
Bent forks or arm won't allow the tranny gears to slide into position.
Must be taken apart, to correctly diagnois,

When you shift with your foot, the shift forks slide on the arm.
If its not going, one of the two or both are bent.

Lost use of 2,3,4 gears


I have no idea what year and model your Honda is. However, normally the problems in a gearbox are tied to bent shift forks. A bent shift fork usually makes the shift lever extremely hard to shift. If your shift lever feels okay but doesn't shift into another gear, my guess would be a stripped dogs on a slider gear or a broken shift index wheel / spring. In any event, the engine will need to be torn down for inspection and repair. Please rate my answer, thanks.

Cant shift down into first gear


If not bent too radically, the shift pedal can be bent outward and away from the frame. Be sure the 10mm lock bolt is tight on the shift shaft. If it still will not go into first gear, the bike has a bent shift fork. The case must be split to get to the fork. Somewhat expensive to repair. Be sure to install new crank bearings and seals.

I dropped my 82 CX 500 and snapped off the gear shift spindle - not just the shift lever but the shaft which the gear shift is attached. Any suggestions?


The shaft is pretty easy to replace. Just remove the right side casing and then the clutch and then the shaft is pretty much ready to pull out the right side. The shaft can sometimes get bent on a fall. cut the shaft nearly flush with the casing if it is bent. The bigger problem you will likely face is a bent shift fork or two. That would require pulling the engine and splitting the center case to replace the forks. Unfortunately the chances that a fork or two has'nt been bent are pretty slim. The bike will not shift properly with bent forks.
