'79 Super Glide. Why does it only shift down one gear?


The shift pattern is usually from neutral, down for first gear then up for all other gears. After you are in high gear you should be able to shift down multiple gears to 1st or neutral. If the motor is off you may have trouble shifting up and down.

I have a 1979 Yamaha xs400 which has a 6 speed gearbox. But when trying to shift from 4th to 5th there is no gear it just feels like I've hit the top end. The 5th won't engage. I have a spare engine with...


For some reason my first answer did not post. The problem is a bent shift fork or two. The forks move left and right to move slider gears to engage into other sets of gears. Don't expect to see the bend in a bent fork. A bent fork looks just like a good one. The bend is very slight. With the gearbox opened up you can manually shift through the gears to see the gear shifting patterns. Some shift patterns require two forks to achieve the shift. Some patterns require only one. You can look to see what yours requires. Below is a generic diagram of how the shift forks move slider gears. tombones49_55.gif

Nedd to see the manaul transmission gear shift


"The shift pattern is a little different, with reverse starting to the left of first, in the German (Getrag in this case) pattern rather than the "reverse-in-sixth" Japanese pattern. It's nearly always easy to find the right gear, though sometimes reverse can be tricky (presumably this gets easier with time)." moz-screenshot.png from a review I found , hope it helps. I suspect reverse is up and to the far left R 1 3

Trying to teach my girlfriend to ride this motercycle and wanted to show her the shifting pattern for this bike (1981 Kawasaki Z440 LTD )before I put her on it.


All most every motorcycle has a push down to down shift and pull up to change to the higher gears pattern.The only exception I am aware of is racing conversions on road race bikes which are opposite of what I stated. Your 1981 model has a six speed gear box with the very first gear being the one you will find pushing the shifter down until it stops snicking through the gears and firms up a bit. Then you have neutral the first spot when you pull it up and then 2,3,4,5,6.

Hello, I own a 93 toyota forerunner, 4*4, v6, automatic. Transmission was only shifting at very high rpms. Replaced trans with another out of identical vehicle, transmission will not shift, disconnected...


The transmission is controlled by the Transmission Control Unit (TCU).

Throttle position, rpm, and speed are input parameters to the TCU. The TCU has a default set of shift patterns. These shift patterns change over time based on your specific vehicle setup and driving habbits.

The shift patterns are only slightly affected by driving habbits over many driving cycles. But, changing the relationship between the throttle position and the actual speed being reported by the speed sensor can have an immediate effect on shift patterns.

While your speedo may now be correct, the realtionship between rpm and thottle position has not been corrected. That would take a gear change in the differentials.

The TCU can be reset to an inital learn base line. When this is done, the TCU will instantly learn the dynamics of your setup.

Any shop with an advanced ODB scan tool can reset the the TCU. The dealer or a transmission shop would be preferable.

You really should change your differential gears as opposed to resetting the TCU
