Hi Anonymous, you probably have a shifter pawl broken spring, or a bent shifter fork, have you recently dropped the bike on it's left side? Good Luck

Happens all the time, you shifter pawl return spring is broken. If you will put the transmission in neutral and lift or push down on the shift lever, you'll notice that the lever doesn't want to return to the "center position" on it's own. This is because the spring that brings the shifter back to the "center position" after a gear shift is broken. It is also not advisable to ride the bike until this is repaired. The broken end of the spring has been known to get caught up in the gears and actually bust the transmission cases in addition to damaging those gears.

This is not a simple repair job in the fact that all the "guts" have to come out of the transmission. The shifter pawl shaft will not come out of the transmission case with the gears on their shafts left inside the case.

SOURCE: My Harley 883 Sportster suddenly became stuck in 5th gear.

More than likely the shifter pawl has broken. Breaking in 5th gear is kind of unusual however, they usually break between first and second.

You'll have to remove the outer primary cover to look at the shifter pawl. It's partially covered by the clutch assembly.

My shifter lever has to much play and doesn't engage gears on my 1988 Sportster 883 Harley.


Sounds like the shifter pawl is broken. This is common in the early Evo Sportsters. You'll have to remove the primary cover, the compensator sprocket and the clutch assembly to get to the shifter pawl.

Good Luck
