I start my bike up get on it and can put it in gear without clutch this don't suppose to happen my pronlem


Putting your bike in gear without the clutch is completely possible and can be dangerous as power will be applied as soon as you do. The idea of the clutch is to apply power between the engine and drive train gradually. I typically only use the clutch on my bike when pulling out and down shifting, otherwise the rest of my shifts are clutch less. Just be careful the bike doesn't take off on you, best to always use the clutch when putting the bike in gear.

I need 2,3 & 4 gear for Yamaha 1100 special 1982 model


Instructions
    • 1 The gears on a motorcycle run in this order: first, neutral, second, third, fourth and fifth. When you are moving, shifting up from first gear will skip over neutral and shift you right into second gear. The only time that shifting up from first will get you into neutral is when you are not moving.
    • 2 Pull in the clutch lever and tap the gear lever down until it stops. This will signify first gear. Pressing the gear lever down will shift you down one step and pressing it up will shift up one step.
    • 3 Tap the gear lever up one click while still holding in the clutch. This will put the bike into neutral.
    • 4 Start the bike. The bike needs to be in neutral to start.
    • 5 Hold in the clutch lever and tap the shifting lever down to shift to first gear.
    • 6 Release the clutch slowly and give it just enough gas to get moving.
    • 7 Listen to the motor to know when you need to shift. If the engine is making a low grumbling noise, then it will need to be shifted down. If it is making a high squealing noise, then it needs to be shifted up.

Ok i fixed all the other problems but now the clutch is messing up it shifts gears just fine but when i put into first gear its like im not even holding the clutch in the bike just wants to go even wh


clutch is out of adjustment. When you shifted down did you speed shift down or use the clutch. Maybe then clutch cable broke, or even worse internal clutch damage or bent shifting fork. If you can shift thru all your gears than shifting forks good. Than its a clutch only problem. But still can be internal damage. Good luck

2001 Honda VT 1100 C2 Shadow Sabre Running Lean


I have a 2007 Honda Shadow Sabre VT1100 and I also put after market pipes on it from Vance and Hines. I also have to keep it choked when first starting and sometimes even hold the throttle a bit while it warms up. The bike has two carburetors and the best solution I have found by lots of asking around of mechanics and bike folk is to get it rejetted through Dyno Jet. It is meant for bikes with after market exhausts and much less back pressure from the lack of those stiffling baffles in the stock pipes. I have also noticed the power loss in the middle torque range and backfiring because of the bike running in a lean condition. The Dyno Jet website is a good place to find the correct set and corresponding part number, but then I suggest finding a cheap place online so you avoid retail price :) Hope this helps. Oh, and don't forget to buy two kits...we have two carburators in our bikes.

There are gear shifts on both handle bars (diamondback cobra 24). How do I instruct my 10 year old how to shift the gears? which is easiest setting and hardest setting?


I strongly suggest taking the bike and your son into a bike shop. They will be happy to show him not only how to shift the gears, but why and when. Also they may even throw in some maintenance tips.

The easiest settings will be labeled 1 and the hardest the larger number. if you were too look at the bike where the chain is, the gears that are closest to the frame are the easiest and the ones far away are the hardest. In the back this means the largest gears are the easiest in the front they are opposite, smallest gears are the easiest.

There are a number of good books and many free instructional videos on youtube that show shifting principles. The biggest issue for 10 year olds is whether they can reach the levers comfortably.

I bought a mountain bike with Shimano Altus gears over the net with most of the assembly in place. Have indexed the rear gears which work fine. Did the same for the front deraileur works changing up but...


There are a couple of possible problems. You can try backing off the cable tension a little bit at the shifter and running back and forth through the gears adjusting as you go till it hits 2nd coming down.You can also try backing off the High limit screw on the derailleur. This will allow the shift to start a little farther from the bike hopefully hit 2nd. Hope this helps.

I Pull in the clutch handle but cannot shift the bike into gear. How do I tell if this is a clutch problem or a transmission problem?


When did this problem start? has the bike been sitting for any long period of time? any background on the bike leading to your problem would help.
questions
1. will the bike shift into gear not running all gears check it first put the bike on the center stand and rotate the rear wheel and go through the gears shifting if that is ok your good
2. shifting into gear bike running does not want to go?
grinds or lurches forward? problems from sitting for long months or yrs. sometimes when a motorcycle sits the clutch plates that are in oil will act like they are glued together ans some time can be freed after the engine oil has warmed up, in worse case you have to remove the r/h clutch cover and remove the clutch pressure plate and separate each of clutch plates and reassemble it.
