Question about 2000 Harley Davidson FXST Softail Standard
Posted by Anonymous on
Hi Anonymous, and the usual suspects are:
1. Primary chaincase overfilled with lubricant.
2. Clutch dragging slightly.
3. Transmission lubricant to heavy.
4. Shifter return spring (inside transmission) bent or broken.
5. Bent shifter rod.
6. Shifter forks (inside transmission) sprung.
7. Corners worn off shifter clutch dogs (inside transmission)
Good luck and have nice day.

sounds like the shift lever shaft broke internally. if you know enough to take it apart and repair yourself, you will firure out how the gearing works. also check shifting forks for defects, make certain thier not bent or this problem will happen again.

You could still have a bind in the shifting linkage or the clutch could be dragging. Take the ballcrank loose at the transmission end of the shift linkage. Check to see that the shift lever moves freely. If not, find out why and repair it.
To adjust the clutch, find the rubber bellows cover that protects the clutch cable adjuster. Slide the cover up or down to access the adjuster. Loosen the lock nut and turn the cable adjuster inwards to get as much slack as you can in the cable.
Then, stand the bike straight up and remove the derby cover. Check the oil level in the primary. It should be no higher than the lower edge of the outer clutch basket. Loosen the lock nut in the center of the clutch assembly. Turn the clutch adjuster screw inwards until you feel a resistance. DO NOT FORCE THE SCREW OR YOU'LL DAMAGE THE INNER CLUTCH HUB. Turn the screw out and back in until you feel the resistance several times or until you are sure of what you're doing. Once you feel the resistance, turn the screw back out 1/2 turn. Tighten the lock nut and put the derby cover back on.
Go back to the cable adjuster and turn the adjuster barrel outwards until you have about an 1/8" freeplay. Work the clutch lever a few times and recheck the freeplay. Lock the lock nut and replace the rubber boot.
I hope this helps.

bent selector fork on the gearbox, and that would be a full engine strip no doubt about it, any more use of it will cause a screwed gearbox and thats mega money!
get it to a mechanic or buy a haynes/clymer manual to help.
