Long time for carbs to get gunked up if not put away with empty tank or special additives. Also clean splark plugs and load test battery. If battery more than 4 years old replace it.

2013 Triumph Thunderbird Storm ABS hard to downshift to first gear


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.
