Go to IBMWRA tech page , both these problems are addressed there. The gear switch in the tranny is bad and the throttle problem can be several things, TPS out of adj or TB's need syncing usually the case. Change the plugs to the Autolite numbers shown on the tech page.

2006 rt 1200 wont start new battery neutral and first gear dont show on dash


The fact that the neutral light does not show up on the dash may indicate that the gear position indicator is not calibrated correctly. Does the bike start with the clutch pulled in?

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.

Will go into neutral but will not go into first gear


Assuming you mean with the engine running, you can't go from neutral to first, I sometimes have this problem too.
I'll slowly let out the clutch just a little bit, shifting into 1st as I'm doing so, and it'll drop into gear.
Also, try shifting up into 2nd, then back down to 1st.

If you mean with the engine NOT running, then you have to rock the bike a little either forward or backwards as holding shifter down until gears line up to engage.

Hey I recently just replaced my gear lever for my 2005 hyosung gt250r and upon replacing I had troubles with shifting into neutral while the engine was running from 1st gear. I've tried shifting from


That is a common thing with the 250r, Just blip the throttle a little to get it to shift, or you could adjust your idle a little lower to help. don't set it lower than 950rpm tho.

How to drive?


you can ride the cluthch on a bike un like a car you wont hurt it its oil lubricated constantly, sitting on the bike pull the clutch in with your left hand and click the left foot lever down in to 1st, then learn how to click it back up 1 half movement in to neutral. the neutral light will come on sfter the bike enters neutral. in first gear give the throttle on the right hand a squeeze and pull the clutch in with your left hand put foot gear selector down in to 1 st and begin to release clutch slowly. hold on as bike will engage may be jerky balance yourself! when you get moving stop! by pulling the clutch in and the hand brake as you close the throttle to stop! practice your take off many times some where safe! when you get your balance in 1st gear pick up speed and begin shifting the foot gear selector up in to 2nd gear and practice closing the throttle and breaking to a safe stop. gears are generslly 1st down 1 click 2345 and6th all up from there and neutral is 1 half a click up from 1st between 2nd gear. And dont put it in gear with the kick stand down t may stall on you

hope this helps

The engine loses power when 1st gear is engaged,


This sounds like a broken tooth on the main axle. This would account for the lump in every gear and a power loss due to the axle being bent also. I would change the axle, support bearings, and the gear the axle engages. Check the output shaft for bending also.

This could be bad bearings on the shafts but is is highly unlikely if the gearbox oil has been kept at proper levels. In any event, the gearbox will need to be opened up for inspection.

Unless you have run over something or something has hit the linkage that you may possibly repair to adjust the gear locations to their proper place on the trans, you must get trans checked out.

When going throught the gears forward sometimes it takes more muscle to change particularly 3 to 4 or 4 to 5 ..... sometimes it is easy to change gear and sometimes it seems to take more effort ....kind of...


try double clutching(come out of 3rd then push clutch twice b-4 going to 4th. if this works your clutch slave may be weak or pressure plate is worn. Try shifting from 1st-3rd if engine revs like your in neutral replace clutch. when going 1st-3rd engine should catch and cause vehicle to buck&stumble. (check level of clutch master cylinder)
