Transmission not shifting completely

Sounds like you don't have enough clutch clearance. The clutch is dragging the gears. Not sure on your bike as you don't mention what you have, but in some bikes I had there was a manual clearance adjustment on the centre of the clutch. Once that is set, the play of the cable was adjusted. Of course hydraulic actuation might differ.

1998 Volkswagen Jetta. The engine starts when in neutral but when I try to put it into gear, the clutch makes a spinning sound like metal on metal, but not engaging. What could be wrong.

The metal on metal sound may be a failed throw out bearing. If there is no sound when you do not use the clutch pedal but it start when you put your foot on the clutch then it is the bearing. I suspect that you will have to pull the gear box and have a clutch kit fitted along with a new clutch throw out bearing.

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.

When I put the key into the ignition in the on position the oil light comes on but I can't seem to get the bike into neutral so that the neutral indicator is on, so therefore I can't start the bike...

Sound like the neutral switch is buggered? a lot of people bypass this by simply unplugging it from the loom. The pulling in the clutch to start is another safety thing & often that switch craps out & gives problems.

Both my clutch & neutral switches are bypassed as there are no spares shops in the desert.

I have problems when I shift from 2 to 3. It make a metal sound just when I shall put it in the 3 gear. The rest of the gears are ok. The Volvo is a 850 GLE 2.5 l 288 000 km.

It sounds like you have a worn syncroniser gear.
You may be able to double clutch between 2 and 3 to get a gring free gear change.
A reoair would require a tranmission d removal and repair.

How to double clutch
push clutch to remove from 2 and stop in neutral-let the clutch out while in neutral.
Wait a second, then push in the clutch and put in 3 and let the clutch out.

This is how transmissions in old trucks without syncronisers are shifted.

Hope this helps

When the clutch is released, there is a lot of noise coming from the front of the transmission in all gears including neutral

this sounds like a bad clutch throwout bearing in tranny. if it makes a rattling noise then its the bearing. when clutch pedal is pushed in.

Have to hold clutch to keep bike from dieing

clutch plate adjusment or cable adjustment, it sounds like the clutch is staying engaged, try loosening the cable on the clutch until there is lots of slack init and try to start the bike, if it jerks forward then you are going to have to adjust/replace the internal clutch plates hope this helps

I've got an 2004 R1 in topp notch condition, it has stood still for near on two months, today wanted to go out on it only to find it wont go into gear?

This is not a tough fix. What has happened is the clutch plates are "stuck" together. Not uncommon when a bike sits for a while. Real easy fix and does not require taking anything apart.
Here you go, and I know this sounds funny but this works and will save you lots of anguish and $$$$. Simply put the bike up against a firm wall with the front tire against it. Put the bike I neutral and start the bike. Pull the clutch in the raise the RPM's to about 3000 - 4000, then put it into first gear. The bike will jump, thats why you put it against the wall, and this will break the clutch lose. You may have to do it a couple of times but you will break it free. The other way to fix this, if you want to be real technical, is to remove the clutch cover, remove the clutch springs which will give you access to the plates by removing the outer cover. Now you simply need to pull out the plates, they will be stuck together, and simply break them lose and clean them off and reinstall them. Make sure you replace the clutch cover gasket or you will have problems.
Personally I'd chose the first recommendation, I have done it hundreds of times for customers and saved them lots of money.
Best of luck, Have a great New Year and I hope you can now go for your ride. Let me know if you need any further assistance.

It sounds as if the transmission's clutch plates are excessively worn. You have 2 options;
1. Replace all of the transmission fluid & the filter too. That may fix the problem although not guaranteed to work completely.

2. Do what I ultimately had to do (after trying the 1st thing) and bring it to a Transmission repair shop and have it rebuilt for $1,400 (as good as new). I thought the van was worth it and I could get a lot more miles from it of course you have to determine this for your self and your van's condition.

Good Luck!
