    does the shifter move like it wants to shift? do this test drain your oil and see how much metal is in it there should be a magnetic end on the drain screw as well

The bike has a bent shift fork. Major repair and major repair cost. Your dealer will probably charge $1300 to $1500 to fix it. Don't try to fix it yourself because the shop will charge an extra $500 or so when you bring it to them in pieces. Besides, you would need some special tools to even begin the job. Sorry, someone had to tell you.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks! < < And it doesn’t cost anything!

Got a yamaha bruin 350 runs great wont take throttle when in gear.


Will the bike rev in neutral? If so, but not when in gear it sounds like the crotch might be slipping. GOOD LUKE.

I need 2,3 & 4 gear for Yamaha 1100 special 1982 model


Instructions
    • 1 The gears on a motorcycle run in this order: first, neutral, second, third, fourth and fifth. When you are moving, shifting up from first gear will skip over neutral and shift you right into second gear. The only time that shifting up from first will get you into neutral is when you are not moving.
    • 2 Pull in the clutch lever and tap the gear lever down until it stops. This will signify first gear. Pressing the gear lever down will shift you down one step and pressing it up will shift up one step.
    • 3 Tap the gear lever up one click while still holding in the clutch. This will put the bike into neutral.
    • 4 Start the bike. The bike needs to be in neutral to start.
    • 5 Hold in the clutch lever and tap the shifting lever down to shift to first gear.
    • 6 Release the clutch slowly and give it just enough gas to get moving.
    • 7 Listen to the motor to know when you need to shift. If the engine is making a low grumbling noise, then it will need to be shifted down. If it is making a high squealing noise, then it needs to be shifted up.

My 2007 s4rs is having trouble finding neutral and also first and second gear seem to send a slight bit of vibration through the bike.its not really noticable but i know the bike very well.im thinking the...


I would fix the clutch first and see if this improves things.
If it creeps this is why it wont select neutral.
The clutch basket can wear out as well as the clutch plates

Neutral light off but motor is in neutral , bike won't start


Check your stand safety switch. Or your gear sensor. One of these is guilty!!!

Gear selection


Some trans were notorious for being hard to find neutral. When in first and you want to go into neutral, put slight pressure on the shift lever, blip throttle and slip lever into neutral. It has something to do with pressure release on the clutch plates.

04 Sportster 883 gearbox Clunk.


Big Twins clunk too, especially into 1st with a cold motor, even if you free the clutch off first. When I remember, I snick it into gear, pull in the clutch and roll it back and forward to free off the plates. And it still clunks. Sometimes, you will slip from neutral into 1st, almost with no effort, and no clunk and so smooth you don't believe it's engaged (but it is). Weird. I have smooth changes from 4th to 5th and back again, sometimes from 3rd to 4th, but 3rd to second and second to 1st are always a BIG clunk, even if you give it some stick to try and match the revs before changing down. I now go from second to neutral and then into 1st, which is not a lot of fun when you are negotiating a hairpin on Glenquaich at the time... A tighter primary chain seems to reduce the clunk, and there are those who say that auto primary adjusters/tensioners (does a Sporty have one of them?) reduce the clunk. Some disagree... Assume you find it's much better when it's hot..
