Molre than likely the trans has to come out. The gogs and slots on the gears are worn . ( it's how the engage and transfer the power from gear to gear )

1980 sportster 1000 slips mid throttle in 2nd gear undefined every thing else works great


warm the engine to normal riding temps and while riding place trans in any gear above first and roll into the throttle, if the rpm's come up and bike doesn't move very well suspect your clutch... if nothing happens in any other gear besides second might want to get a mechanic to open up the transmission

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

I have a 2004 harley davidson 883 sportster and it keeps popping out of 2nd gear the guy i bought it from said that he replaced the gear and it just needs to be broken in?


No, sorry to tell you that you don't need to break a gear in. There is something not quite right in the transmission if it's jumping out of gear. If I had to guess, he probably broke second gear speed shifting the bike, then replaced the gear and go the shimming messed up and it doesn't have the correct engagement with the shifter clutch dogs. To repair this, you'll have to pull the transmission out of the case. If your mechanically inclined, this isn't that difficult but you WILL need a factory service manual to check the transmission to find out what is wrong. Heck, he may have put the gear in backwards. Some of them will work that way but they'll jump out when power is applied or let off.

Good Luck

My 02 Custom 1200 has developed a problem. When downshifting from 3rd to 2nd the action feels and sounds like the shift engaged only to find it is actually out of gear. Also, the neutral light goes right...


sounds like the shift drum in it that selects the gears is getting worn out or maybe the dog legs on the forks for the gears its self. my try changing the fuilds and flushing it out. to see if it helps.

What controls when an automatic shifts ? 02 4runner seems to stay too long in any gear, particularly when engine is cold, stays in 2nd gear until approx 2500 rpms.


The speed sensor on the transmission along with the throttle position sensor on the engine deliver the signals to the transmission computer dtermining shift timing, the throttle position sensor is probaly out of wack, there should be a stored trouble code however this transmission code can only be read by a transmission shop or the dealership, I guess you could change out the TPS sensor easy enough however this is merley an educated guess on my part to be sure have the computer checked for stored trouble codes.

Honda V1100 Jumps out of gear on full throttle acceleration


More likely it is a slightly bent shift fork not fully engaging into second. The clutch and bearings are not suspect. Remove your foot from the shift lever then go full throttle in 2nd. Those new riding boots may be doing the magic unconsciously. Adjust the shift lever height if that is the problem.
