Remember neutral is a 1/2 notch toward second gear. Not all the way down or a hard pull up toward second gear ....it is a light half notch between first and second. With the engine running it will almost always walk the shifter past neutral because of centrifical force from the engine.

Shifting to neutral is a bit tricky until you get the hang of it. From first gear, shift only halfway. From second downshift only halfway. Don't do a full pull on the shifter just lightly. It takes some finesse and practice, but you will get it in no time.

Honda CBF250 - When clutch pulled fully, switching Neutral to 1st Gear bike bounces forward


I think could two things. 1. A sticky clutch from being used for awhile. Are you starting it in gear with the clutch in or in neutral then engaging first. 2. You might need a slight adjustment on your clutch. Particully if there doesn't feel like much tension on the clutch lever.

Hi there my benelli 900 tre won't go into neutral when bike is running?


hi, sounds like clutch drag, has the bike stood for any length of time, chain tension also plays an important part of easy gear selection, as well as the correct amount of free play at the lever

I lost reverse on my '91 saab 900s 5 speed. sometimes lose 1st and 2nd gear. Thinking maybe gearbox nees lubricating ?


Had the same type of problems with my 95 Saab 900. A bushing in the shifter linkage kept popping out. Found out after lots of frustration there was a new shifter linkage mechanism out for 94 to 97 Saabs that fixed this problem. Not sure if it relates. I found the part here:

1987 Honda rebel 250 shifting problems


make sure you have proper amount oil in your gear box, i would change it since is 1987, check the cable, over time it things tend to stretch, squeeze the clutch handle fully, check if it pulling the clutch arm fully, if its not lift fully it will be also hard to engage and disengage the gears. low oil, dirty oil gives the gear very little lubrication will also cause the problems.
