Follow the shifter linkage back from the forward controls to the shift lever going into the transmission. Make sure the joints and bolts in the linkage are tight. My guess is the shift lever is loose on the shaft. If so, there is an allen head bolt that secures the shift lever to the shifter shaft. The shift lever is split and the allen head bolt is a pinch bolt. It's kinda hard to get to, but an allen head socket, short extension, and a rachet will work. Make sure this bolt is tight. Use a little penetrating oil before trying to tighten it. If it won't tighten, try taking the bolt out, chase the threads in the shift lever with a tap, and replace the bolt with a new one.

Hi Frankie, you could have a shifter pawl spring issue or a loose shifter rod lever in between the transmission and the inner primary all of which can be resolved by leaving transmission in frame.

There's only two things that could possibly make contact with the top cover and cause any problem. One is the shifter pawl and the other is neutral switch.

The shifter pawl return springs are notorious for breaking in the five speed transmissions. I've replaced a load of them. Take your foot shifter pedal and lift up on it until the transmisson just tries to shift. Then go back to the center position and press the lever down until the transmission just tries to shift. Does the spring pressure feel the about the same in both directions. If not, the shifter pawl return spring is broken.

With the top off, you can inspect the small spring on the sfifter pawl itself. See if that spring is broken. This is about the only thing that I know of in a five speed that will cause shifting problems. But then, I never claimed to know it all.

Good Luck
Steve

Brake lights,turn signal and horn not working...


Check the wiring within the headlight shell--look for connectors that may be corroded or pulled loose. A little WD-40 will favor connection integrity when sprayed into the connectors, then coupling and uncoupling them several times. Hope this helps!
