Question about Harley Davidson Motorcycles
2009 Hd 1200 sporty with 5000 miles... took a lil spin to warm fluids up to do a oil change. Stopped at a stop sign after about 2 miles of easy riding and the bike will not go anywere. no weird noises or anything unusual. I can put it in any gear let off clutch and nothing wont die and wont move. Even the neutral light comes on then shift down and nothing. Im no mechanic but this is weird to me, that it stays idle when it is in gear. or atleast i think its in gear. I can push it even when it says its in gear as well. Please Help!
Sounds like your clutch is getting stuck in the disengagement. Follow the clutch cable down and check to see if its moving or stuck.

SOURCE: stuck in gear
ry useing blue LOCTITE on the pinch bolts and other fasteners to keep the shifter from vibrating loose again. I had the shift linkage vibrate loose on my Thruxton when it was new, I had to fix it on the road to get home.

if you rebuilt your carburetors you have made a mistake when you reassembled them a carb must sprsy a fine mist of "dry" fuel into the engine intake your carbs are flooding you need to check your fuel floats , jets and, don't forget to check the power piston circuit and, balance (sync) your carbs on the bike when you're done
your chuch is fine if you did not touch it

You have a bent shift fork.
You will need an impact driver, flywheel puller, case splitter and torque wrench plus the normal screwdriver, pliers, etc.. Alternate to the special tools is taking it to the dealer and say "Fix it". I often tell people to take it to the shop just so they don't get into such an involved project.
The motor comes out of the bike then turned upside down for removal of the bottom case. The clutch, shift shaft, flywheel, electrics, gears and gear shafts gotta come out so you can get to the bad fork. There's much more but the idea is that you are better off having the shop do the repair unless you have experience, are extremely mechanically inclined, and have the tools. The bad news is that a shop is going to charge around $1500 for the repair. Some shop mechanics also repair bikes at home. If you find one, you can save $200 to $400 or so.
A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

I have a feeling you broke a yoke, That bike is fairly new, and I don't think the tranny is trashed yet, probably just something in there slipped off. I don't know how hard it is to get to the gearbox, but you have to go in there and find out. I couldn't find any complaints about it in the forums, supposed to be a nice bike. Hope this helps.
