My sons klx 110 grinds when downshifting

I just went in and replaced the shifter shaft with both springs. The bike shifts fine from 1-3. It just grinds when you are moving and trying to shift down. Sitting still doesn't make a sound.

While sitting still the gears are not moving. This sounds like a slightly bent shift fork. In the diagram below the slider gear moves left and right to engage the gears. The gear "dogs" fit into holes cast into the stationary gears. The grinding takes place as the fork moves the slider into first gear but the dogs are not getting moved the full distance needed to fully engage the gear because of the bent fork. The center case must be split to gain access to the gears and shift forks.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

Have a 1983 Suzuki GS550. When downshifting, the bike stays in the downshifted gear, however shifter stays in "first" rather then popping up back into "neutral". Have to pick up by foot in order to do


The transmission must be shifted up from first to neutral. Sometimes neutral must be "hunted for". If you are operating the shift properly then there is a small spring under the cover where the lever is mounted that may be broken or out of place. Drain the oil before removing the cover.

Remove the side cover on the opposite side of the shift lever. Once opened you will see the gear shifter there is a spring on the shaft look if it is in its correct place or if it is not broken

My 2005 road king wont downshift any suggestions??


Even the linkage on the outside of the transmission looks good, the problem is on the inside. I think your shifter pawl hold down spring is broken. Have you tried to shift the transmisson up and down with the engine not running? Just rock the bike backwards and forwards while trying to shift the transmission. If the transmission does not shift doing this, the problem is definately in the transmission. Harley has a problem with their shifter pawls and shifter pawl return springs. I've replaced many of them. A complete disassembly of the transmission is required. Verify by pulling the top cover off the transmission and watch the shifter pawl as you try to downshift.

Good Luck

Shifter lever broken...


It sounds like you bent the shift fork, or at least the shaft that penetrates the case and holds the shift lever on the outside. If you are certain you are moving the shaft and the bike won't come out of first then you will have to open up the case and see what is bent or broken inside.
