The shift forks and synchronizers are going out. Time for a trans rebuild, or find another motor in good shape. Making sure the clutch is adjusted correctly will help a little bit also.

1984yamaha virago 1000. with the bike running, when I try to shift from neutral to first gear the bike stalls. I think it has something to do with the electrical.. Help!


If you are at idle, in neutral, with the clutch lever pulled all the way in, and you shift into gear and the engine dies, it is likely the switch at the clutch lever. When they fail the bike does not get the signal that the clutch is disengaged and it is safe to shift into gear. Have that switch checked. Some bikes also have a side stand switch, make sure your side stand is always up before putting you bike into gear.

I need 2,3 & 4 gear for Yamaha 1100 special 1982 model


Instructions
    • 1 The gears on a motorcycle run in this order: first, neutral, second, third, fourth and fifth. When you are moving, shifting up from first gear will skip over neutral and shift you right into second gear. The only time that shifting up from first will get you into neutral is when you are not moving.
    • 2 Pull in the clutch lever and tap the gear lever down until it stops. This will signify first gear. Pressing the gear lever down will shift you down one step and pressing it up will shift up one step.
    • 3 Tap the gear lever up one click while still holding in the clutch. This will put the bike into neutral.
    • 4 Start the bike. The bike needs to be in neutral to start.
    • 5 Hold in the clutch lever and tap the shifting lever down to shift to first gear.
    • 6 Release the clutch slowly and give it just enough gas to get moving.
    • 7 Listen to the motor to know when you need to shift. If the engine is making a low grumbling noise, then it will need to be shifted down. If it is making a high squealing noise, then it needs to be shifted up.

I have problems when I shift from 2 to 3. It make a metal sound just when I shall put it in the 3 gear. The rest of the gears are ok. The Volvo is a 850 GLE 2.5 l 288 000 km.


It sounds like you have a worn syncroniser gear.
You may be able to double clutch between 2 and 3 to get a gring free gear change.
A reoair would require a tranmission d removal and repair.

How to double clutch
push clutch to remove from 2 and stop in neutral-let the clutch out while in neutral.
Wait a second, then push in the clutch and put in 3 and let the clutch out.

This is how transmissions in old trucks without syncronisers are shifted.

Hope this helps

Difficult to downshift into lower gears. bike has 4200 miles


I only hope you have not damaged a shift drum or bent a shift fork. My 2009 has never downshifted well unless I am moving. If I coast to a stop and down shift at the light , I often have to double clutch to get back to neutral. If you ride in hot weather and that is where you are experiencing the problem, you may just be using the wrong oil. Use only JASO MA certfied motorcycle oil. Do not use car oil or any oil that says Energy Conserving , it will shorten the life of the wet clutch and transmission gears. You may want to try a full synthetic oil , it will help the bike run cooler and shift easier.
