2013 Triumph Thunderbird Storm ABS hard to downshift to first gear

It's like the shift pedal sticks down in 3rd and will not return to get the next gear until I blip the throttle. Any help would be appreciated. @

Hi, Curt and the usual suspects are:
1. Clutch not adjusted properly.
2. Primary chaincase overfilled with lubricant.
3. Corners wore off shifter clutch dogs.
4. Shifter return spring bent or broken.
5. Bent shifter rod.
6. A loose shift lever on shifter shaft.
7. Shifter forks sprung.
8. Shifter pawl needs adjusting.
9. Heel/toe shifter coming in contact with the floorboard.
10. Transmission oil too heavy.

SOURCE: 03 YZ 250 won't shift into 3rd

You have a bent shift fork. The repair means removing the engine from the frame then tearing it down into about 75 parts which will then allow the bent shift fork to be replaced. This is not a job for the amature mechanic. Wish I were there with you to guide the repair.

SOURCE: honda shadow aero 2005 VT750C shifting problem

You have a bent shift fork. This is not a repair job for the amateur. The engine comes out of the frame, turns upside down then the bottom of the gear case gets separated from the top. The entire shift drum, forks and all, gets removed and the bent fork gets replaced. The engine re-assembles in the reverse pattern.

Now what about stressed gears? Any cracked or broken slider gear dogs?

You are going to have at least 75 parts on the work bench. Was the collar on the slider gear on the left side or the right? I am trying to show you why you had best be careful. The shop charges more to fix a box of loose parts than if they fix a gearbox.


Pleas rate this solution. Thanks!

SOURCE: C90 HARD TO SHIFT DOWN FROM THIRD GEAR

You have a bent shift fork. The repair means taking the engine out of the frame then removing the top end, removing the flywheel and electrics, removing the clutch , shift mechanism and kick starter and a few other parts. THEN you are ready to split the gearbox to remove the crankshaft and then the bent shift fork. Next you get to put it all back together. This is a pretty big job for the home mechanic.

You will need an impact driver, flywheel puller, case splitter and torque wrench plus the normal screwdriver, pliers, etc.. Alternate to the special tools is taking it to the dealer and say "Fix it".
I normally tell people to take it to the shop just so they don't get into such an involved project.

Please rate this solution. Thanks

Where is the passing gear on a 2003 Mitsubishi Diamante


'Passing gear' is a term that means the transmission is down-shifted to a lower gear (e.g., from 5th gear to 4th gear) for improved acceleration to pass another vehicle. There is no physical component called a passing gear in the transmission.
To engage the 'passing gear' with an automatic transmission should require nothing more than pressing the accelerator pedal down firmly. The transmission should downshift automatically to the next lower gear (sometimes it will downshift two gear ratios, depending on your speed and how far you depress the accelerator pedal).

Will it hurt the engine in anyway to just remove the baffles from my 2013 triumph thunderbird?


Although it won't damage the engine, it may well cause the engine to run poorly (loss of power, run rough etc.). You can change exhaust systems but sometimes you need to re-jet or re-tune the engine

2013 Thunderbird storm, top end engine ticking noise at idle, a lot worse when hot, any ideas?


Valve adjustment needed if you are ticking. Then, change the oil. And by change the oil, I mean switch brands. I use Mobil 1 fully synthetic with a K&N filter. Never had a problem. I also recommend Castrol Syntec and stay away from Amsoil and Royal Purple.

I was driving to work this morning and was in 3rd gear, went to down shift at a stop sign and its stuck in 3rd gear. 1988 jeep wrangler. It has been grinding the gear for a few weeks now everytime I change...


The 3rd Gear Synchro is worn or damaged, which is why it grinds when you try to upshift or downshift into 3rd gear. When it goes out completely you will have a very hard time shifting into 3rd gear, since the Synchro lines up the gears to make shifts smooth and easy.
