95 harley ultra classic stuck in gear. Was driving down the road in 5th gear when there was a pop and then a hissing sound. Could not get the bike out of 5th. Got it back home and pulled the top cover and the side cover off to insoect the tranny, with the side cover one, so I can work the clutch everything seems to work properly. With the top cover on, not even bolted down it gets stuck again, what is it?

There's only two things that could possibly make contact with the top cover and cause any problem. One is the shifter pawl and the other is neutral switch.

The shifter pawl return springs are notorious for breaking in the five speed transmissions. I've replaced a load of them. Take your foot shifter pedal and lift up on it until the transmisson just tries to shift. Then go back to the center position and press the lever down until the transmission just tries to shift. Does the spring pressure feel the about the same in both directions. If not, the shifter pawl return spring is broken.

With the top off, you can inspect the small spring on the sfifter pawl itself. See if that spring is broken. This is about the only thing that I know of in a five speed that will cause shifting problems. But then, I never claimed to know it all.

Good Luck
Steve

How to stop the transmission noise in 5th gear on a 2007 HD Ultra Classic?


The 5th gear noise with the 6 speed is legendary!

1st and 5th are straight cut gears. 2nd,3rd,4th, and 6th are helical cut gears. Straight cut are stronger so Harley put them in the most popular gears.

Some people swear that either Mobil Syn 75/90 or Redline Shockproof 85/140 helps.

Baker transmissions make a F6F kit that has a helical cut gear, and a thicker trapdoor to handle the increased side loading because of it, but it ain't cheap!

Engine noise


If you dd not torque the front sprocket down correctly you could have an issue. If this is a new noise then be concerned, if this has progressed over time, then it is more than likely just the bike loosening up. Which is normal...but loud, could this be pre-detonation, did you make the correct adjustments to your MAP? Check you push rod adjustment with the bike cold, I mean Artic overnight not running cold.
