Question about 2003 Buell Firebolt XB9R

1 Answer

Cant change gears xb9s

It's stuck in first - can't get it to change gears. Rocking it forward/backward has no effect. Additionally - it tries to start and acts like the clutch is no in because it jumps forward.

I have a 2004 trailblazer. For no reason the gear shifter became stuck in Reverse, the car will not start because I can't put the car in Park or Neutral. What could be wrong?


Are you on an incline? If so try rocking your vehicle forward and backward with others helping you. Your transmission may be bound. While the vehicle is rocking you should be able to shift the transmission into neutral.

2004 suzuki intuder 800 has been sitting for a few years. Got it running again but cant get it to shift gears or go in neutral. Not sure what gear its in. How do i fix this???


If the gears will change with the engine off and rocking the bike backwards and forwards the clutch plates are probably stuck together.

If the gears won't change that way it would seem some dismantling and further investigation is needed.

My 94ford ranger is stuck in gear. is there any way to pull it out or do i have to pull transmission


Um, what kind of transmission? Standard or automatic? What gear?
Generally if it's an automatic and stuck in drive or reverse it's probably a linkage issue ...something's out of adjustment and you'll need to get under the truck to sort it out. If it is stuck in Park, then try rocking it backward or forward while some tries to move it out of park ...sometimes the parking awl gets hung up when the vehicle rolls a bit after you put it in park.
If you have a standard tranny then there is something amiss internally. Modern standard floor shift trannies do not have any external linkages to go out of adjustment. You might try rocking the vehicle back and forth while someone tries to move the shifter to neutral. But if it's jammed chances are it is something internal that's failed.

The neutral lite wont stay on , the foot lever is not allowing it to go to neutral


The neutral light won't stay on because the gearbox isn't in neutral. try rocking the bike backwards and forwards, kick the gears down as many time as you can (at least 6) and then try moving the gear lever up one until the bike moves freely backwards and forwards. Your bike should then start. It would be easier to identify any problems if you let us know the make and model of the bike.

When hooking my new vrod battery up i can hear the starter spinning when i try to attach the ground...what am i doing wrong


When you discovered your battery was kaput, you were probably trying to start your bike at the time. I have seen on rare occasions that when this happens, the starter solenoid gets "stuck" in the "engaged" positon. Try rocking your bike backwards and forwards a few times with the transmission in high gear. Rock the bike while shifting the tranny until you get it into high gear. The with the clutch out, rock the bike and turn the engine over a few times. Shift the bike back down to neutral and try to connect the battery. Rocking the bike while in gear rotates the outer clutch drum. If the starter jack shaft is still engaged with the ring gear on the outer clutch drum, rocking the bike a bit will turn the drum allowing the spring in the starter to pull the jack shaft and starter gear back out of engagement. I hope this helps.

My rodeo is stuck in gear


You will need to get the clutch hydraulic system repaired before the clutch can be successfully disengaged.
Meanwhile, try rocking the vehicle backward/forward while shifting gearlever out of gear to get it into neutral.
