Check to see that lever isn't fouling anywhere on the way up, you may have to re-position the lever on the splines to sit lower

Have a 1983 Suzuki GS550. When downshifting, the bike stays in the downshifted gear, however shifter stays in "first" rather then popping up back into "neutral". Have to pick up by foot in order to do


The transmission must be shifted up from first to neutral. Sometimes neutral must be "hunted for". If you are operating the shift properly then there is a small spring under the cover where the lever is mounted that may be broken or out of place. Drain the oil before removing the cover.

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.

2000 Dyna wide Glide. Laid bike down and bent shift linkage. after bending it back shifting is an issue. Hard to find neutral and does not want to shift into 1st right or second very well. and higher...


You could still have a bind in the shifting linkage or the clutch could be dragging. Take the ballcrank loose at the transmission end of the shift linkage. Check to see that the shift lever moves freely. If not, find out why and repair it.

To adjust the clutch, find the rubber bellows cover that protects the clutch cable adjuster. Slide the cover up or down to access the adjuster. Loosen the lock nut and turn the cable adjuster inwards to get as much slack as you can in the cable.

Then, stand the bike straight up and remove the derby cover. Check the oil level in the primary. It should be no higher than the lower edge of the outer clutch basket. Loosen the lock nut in the center of the clutch assembly. Turn the clutch adjuster screw inwards until you feel a resistance. DO NOT FORCE THE SCREW OR YOU'LL DAMAGE THE INNER CLUTCH HUB. Turn the screw out and back in until you feel the resistance several times or until you are sure of what you're doing. Once you feel the resistance, turn the screw back out 1/2 turn. Tighten the lock nut and put the derby cover back on.

Go back to the cable adjuster and turn the adjuster barrel outwards until you have about an 1/8" freeplay. Work the clutch lever a few times and recheck the freeplay. Lock the lock nut and replace the rubber boot.

I hope this helps.

Good Luck
Steve

One day i was comin off the exit ramp downshifted in order to come to the stoplight. I was at a complete stop and put the bike in first gear. The engine revved as i let go of the clutch but there was no...


It will not be a bent shift fork. If the clutch lever feels the same pulling the lever in and out as it did before the problem came up then chances are the clutch is okay. Does the lever at the gearbox move properly when the hand lever is moving in and out? Is the clutch cable hanging up on something? I think you are going to find either a broken woodruff key on the gear at the right end of the crankshaft or clutch plates hanging up on the clutch hub. The broken key would prevent power from going to the ring gear on the outer clutch hub. The clutch plates can wear grooves into the clutch inner and or outer hubs. Too deep a groove and the plates can be unable to be compressed by the clutch springs. The result is no power being transmitted through the clutch. Another possibility is a broken shift shaft arm or arm spring. The right engine side cover will need to be removed so you can then do a visual inspection of the crankshaft gear, clutch hub and shift shaft lever. If I knew the year and model and engine size of your Yamaha bike I could offer more exact diagrams. The one below are generic. Go to www.babbittsonline.com and you can see an exploded view of your specific engine. Please rate my answer. tombones49_92.gif

How do I adjust my clutch cable on 1996 katana, I just changed it and now it wont engage into gear.


It should be set so that there is about 1/2" play at the lever end before it takes up the clutch mechanism. Make sure the lever isn't bent toward the grip which would restrict it's travel. If the lever is made of aluminum and bent, don't try to straighten it when cold--it will break. Heat the lever with a propane torch until fairly hot, then gently do the straightening. Shift the transmission into first gear, pull the clutch, and try to push the bike to test for release. Don't run the engine until it works as described. If this doesn't work, review the installation of the cable. Hope this helps!

you could try and adjust your shift lever. it sounds like you have a bent/worn out shifter fork. changing a shifter fork in the transmision is a lot of work.you have to remove the engine from the frame and split the cases.Sorry probably not what you wanted to hear but this should be done at a bike shop.

Has the oil been changed since you got it back out on the road? An oil change might help flush any accumulated "crumb" out of your tranny.
