You either need to adjust your clutch, you have too much oil in your primary, or your throwout bearing has failed.

To adjust the clutch, follow the clutch cable until you find the rubber bellows near the down tubes of the frame. Slide the bellow up or down to gain access to the adjuster. Loosen the lock nut and adjust the adjuster inwards making the cable as short as possible.

Now, remove the derby cover on the outer primary cover. In the center of the clutch assembly you'll see an adjuster screw and locknut. Loosen the locknut and turn the adjuster clockwise until you feel a resistance. You don't want to force the adjuster screw as you'll start to release the clutch, go in just until you feel resistance. You may wish to do this several times until you get the feel for it. Once you feel the resistance, back out 1/2 to 1 full turn and lock the locknut. Reinstall the derby cover.

Now, go back to the cable adjuster and adjust the adjuster outward, making the cable longer, until you get about an 1/8" freeplay at the clutch lever. Lock the locknut and reposition the bellows. This should allow your clutch to release.

If you have too much oil in your primary, it will cause your clutch to drag and make it impossible to find neutral with the engine running. The oil level should be no higher than the bottom of the clutch spring with the bike standing straight up.

If you're experiencing difficulty shifting through the rest of the gears, You may have lost a throw out bearing. To replace the throwout bearing, you'll have to pull the chrome clutch release cover off the right side of the transmission.

Good Luck
Steve

Why wont my tomberlin stay in nuetral


On most motorcycles the shift drum has 2 levers and springs called a detents. One lever and spring(detent #1) holds the drum in nuetral and the second lever and spring(detent #2) holds the transmission in gear each time a gear is selected. The nuetral detent (detent #1) has a notch that it drops into when it is in nuetral only. If the spring for the nuetral detent is bad or the detent lever does not drop into the notch (for whatever reason) the transmission will not stay in nuetral. The detent levers and springs will be located to the outside of the shift drum, normally opposite the shift lever side of the engine and inside the engine cover.
If you can rock the bike back and forth and find nuetral with the engine off but have trouble getting nuetral with the engine running, the problem with finding nuetral is probably clutch related and is not the detent. Clutches that are not fully disengaging will make it hard to find nuetral with the engine running.

My kia wont move feels like cluck is always engaged


if you put shifter in nuetral and you start car and release clutch does it go? If yes then there is a trans or linkage problem. If you can shift car and the clutch disengages yet car wont roll i would check the brakes for broken hardware or frozen calipers.

MY CLUTCH WONT DISENGAGE, BUT THE CLUTCH ACTUATES AND HAS BEEN ADJUSTED BY THE BOOK MULTIPLE TIMES


You need to adjust it so that it just disengages. The book is a good guide but every bike is a little bit different. If it dosen't completely disengage you will trash your trans quick.

1994 sportster xl shifting problem


Make sure your cltuch is disengaging. With the motor full hot (ride it a good while), shut iff the engine, put it in first, pull in the clutch and try to roll the bike. It should roll as easily (or almost as easily) as it would in nuetral. If it resist, loosen the clutch adjustment so it has plenty of free play in the lever. Ride and see if that makes a difference. If not, most likely you have a bent shift fork or shif shaft. :(
