Should be a bolt holding the actuator to the splined shaft. Loosen it & move it until you have neutral. Tighten the bolt & test drive it. Should be ok.

How do I replace centering pin for shifter.


I am sure the pin sheared, that is why the shifter is not center. Push the shifter back to original position so that the hole would line up( using little force) Knock out sheared pin and replace with new one.

Phillip

My 06 harley sportster shifts up and now is stuck in 5th gear because it won't shift back down, the shifter moves freely going down, but won't change gears


Hi Anonymous, and the usual suspects are: shifter pawl, shifter cam, shifter cam follower, or shifter fork. I know you are crying your eyes out because you can't find the first and very best tool you ever bought for your Sportster to let you know which suspect it is. Well dry those pretty blues because for a mere $5.50 you can download another one, please visit website below:

Engine only cranks once in while not every time lot of drain on bat and the shifter nwont come out of park solenoid not working


{: ) You need to deal with the battery drain problem first, because many functions on the vehicle are affected when battery power is low. Need thorough inspections and isolation tests to determine the root cause of the drain. goodluck.
