Question about 2001 Yamaha V Star Classic

1 Answer

I have a 2001 V-Star classic toe heal shifter. I only use the toe to shift (Is how I learned and I am a beginner), but realize it only goes to third gear with the toe. Are there more gears but to shift them I must use the heal?

Hi and welcome to fixya,

Nice bike. The problem with flappy or loose shifters can be caused by worn out shifter linkages. These are ball joints connected to a rod which enable play forward or backward. You mentioned an excessive play, I suggest you replace these shift linkages, make the necessary adjustments and you'll be surprised how responsive your shifter will be.

I highly suggest you check on this part first before proceeding with transmission problems.

Other related concerns relating to poor shifting:
-Clutch release
-clutch spring adjustment (center of the clutch cage)


I hope this helps

MY BIKE SHIFTS HARD GOING INTO 5TH GEAR. THIS IS USING THE HEEL PART OF THE SHIFTING LEVER. IT SEEMS TO GO INTO GEAR EASIER WHEN LIFTING ON THE TOE PART OF LEVER. ANY SUGGESTIONS? THANKS.


The heel and toe shifter is brutal on gear boxes, any motorcycle I have had over the years the heel shift was never used in fact we, we meaning all my friends would ether cut that hell part off or purchase the actual toe shifter and install it. Some of the new cruiser type bikes come with these heel and to shifters and you can hear the rider slamming the gears. The toe shifter is a much more precise feel. You can also feel if the shift has go into the gear or a faults neutral with the hell you slam through it, makes me shiver just thinking of it. A question to you (you don't need to answer it) is how many high performance motorcycles have you see with a heal/toe shifter, I would hope none
