It's either a simple cable adjustment or it's time for a new clutch,So no it's not a major problem.

    About $120 for the set,and you should have an adjuster at both ends of the cable.

My 2004 1500 Vulcan Nomad will not stay in gear 2nd thru 4th gears? It started off as a momentary thing where when I went from 1st to 2nd it would go into a false neutral. now it won't stay in gear at all...


Always start with the easy (read cheap) stuff first. Make sure that the clutch is fully disengaging when in gear and engine running. If bike 'clunks' and lurches forward as soon as you shift into any gear, it may simply be that your clutch needs to be bled and/or adjusted so that you are fully engaging/disengaging the gear. More likely, however, the shift lever was subjected to a heavy foot resulting in the shift fork being bent. This prevents full engagement of the gear resulting in it popping out under load. Unfortunately, this repair requires a teardown. Continued operation with the tranny popping out of gear will round off the shift dogs and create an even more very expensive repair.

Honda CBF250 - When clutch pulled fully, switching Neutral to 1st Gear bike bounces forward


I think could two things. 1. A sticky clutch from being used for awhile. Are you starting it in gear with the clutch in or in neutral then engaging first. 2. You might need a slight adjustment on your clutch. Particully if there doesn't feel like much tension on the clutch lever.

The Clutch on some bikes will disengage the starter motor. Yamaha will not allow you to engage gear when the side stand is down. Hope this gives you some idea

Now you know why the prior owner sold the bike. The problem is a bent shift fork. The engine comes out of the bike then the bottom end gets disassembled to a point where a new shift fork can be installed. The "grinding" is the dogs on the slider gear not fully engaging into first gear.
Your local Honda dealer will charge you $1000 to $1500 to do the repair. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Please rate my answer. Thanks!

Clutch/gearbox


If the gearbox oil is extremely dirty and gritty this problem can occur. Usually the clutch doesn't want to disengage and the clutch handle is stiff to operate. An oil / filter change followed up 100 miles later with another oil change cleans the dirt and grit from the gearbox. Since you didn't mention a hard clutch handle or that the clutch doesn't want to engage / disengage, I doubt if dirty oil is the problem.

This sounds like bent shift forks. What bothers me is that all gears have the problem. Any chance the teenage delinquent down the block had 5 minutes alone with the bike? Normally, only 1st and 2nd have the problem. They share a common fork. This is major surgery for the bike. Try the double oil change anyway. It is low cost and can't hurt anything.

My Ford Escort van W reg. which I have just purc hased has problems with stiff gears particularly into reverse.


One of the most common causes of hard shift is the clutch no fully disengaging, also do you put it in 2nd before you try 1st or reverse, it helps stop gear motion in the trans which eases the effort to engage the non-synchro gears, which first and reverse are most likely.
