The neutral lite wont stay on , the foot lever is not allowing it to go to neutral

The neutral light won't stay on because the gearbox isn't in neutral. try rocking the bike backwards and forwards, kick the gears down as many time as you can (at least 6) and then try moving the gear lever up one until the bike moves freely backwards and forwards. Your bike should then start. It would be easier to identify any problems if you let us know the make and model of the bike.

..will not go into 1st

Your clutch may be out of adjustment or worn. With the bike not running try putting it in 1st gear while rocking it forwards and backwards. If it goes into 1st gear easilly, check your clutch for wear or proper adjustment.

How much forward and backward slop should there be on the mainshaft 1st gear when i turn it back then forward on the clutch side

When you've got the clutch off and you're turning the mainshaft by hand backwards and forwards, it feels like a lot. I've never measured it but it seems like it's about a half turn or so. What you are doing when you turn the mainshaft backwards and forwards with the transmission in gear is you're moving the dogs of the first gear clutch dog in the transmission back and forth in the slots that it the dogs fit into. They have to have enough room to slide into the slots but when it the engine is running. the dogs go all the way to the backside and stop. Unless you're having a problem with the transmission, don't worry about this back and forward movement.

Good Luck

My bike dosent change gears its stuck in nutral its a 79 ironhead i just cant figure it out

Rock the bike backwards and forwards while trying to shift the gears. If the lever moves up and down but the transmission does not shift, the shifter shaft in the transmission may be broken. When doing this test, make sure the final drive chain is on the bike.

When hooking my new vrod battery up i can hear the starter spinning when i try to attach the ground...what am i doing wrong

When you discovered your battery was kaput, you were probably trying to start your bike at the time. I have seen on rare occasions that when this happens, the starter solenoid gets "stuck" in the "engaged" positon. Try rocking your bike backwards and forwards a few times with the transmission in high gear. Rock the bike while shifting the tranny until you get it into high gear. The with the clutch out, rock the bike and turn the engine over a few times. Shift the bike back down to neutral and try to connect the battery. Rocking the bike while in gear rotates the outer clutch drum. If the starter jack shaft is still engaged with the ring gear on the outer clutch drum, rocking the bike a bit will turn the drum allowing the spring in the starter to pull the jack shaft and starter gear back out of engagement. I hope this helps.

Tractor will not go in forward gear, only reverse.

Try rocking the mower forward and backward while you try to shift it.

I have a 1996 kx 250 that will not select 4th gear going up or down the gearbox but selects other gears fine what could be the problem

Selecter forks could be damaged, gear shift shaft bent, return spring faulty, clutch dragging maybe! Try rocking it backwards and forwards engine off and see if you can find that gear! Good Luck - The Yeti

Gear problem

Check out the engine and gearbox mountings. With the engine cold, try and rock the engine backwards and forwards. Have someone check each mounting in turn.
