Question about 2000 Honda VT 750 CD Shadow A.C.E. Deluxe

1 Answer

I just got the bike and it seems to me that there is no 5th gear. I can ride 75-80 mph no problem, but I don't think I am engaging a 5th gear. Any advise?

When you are in top gear driving a Honda, you can lift up the shifter pedal with your foot with out pulling in the clutch. The pedal is actually not engaging or doing any thing and will give no resistance. If you are not sure if you are an in top gear You just lift up on the pedal with out engaging the clutch If it moves up freely you know you are in top gear. If you are driving and apply light upward pressure on the pedal and there is resistance , you have another gear to go.

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:

When at 4000 rpm around 90 mph in 5th gear the bike will seem as though it is cutting out. IE: like the limiter has kicked in. ? is it starving for fuel? (flow needle needs adjustment?)


it could be but will it go past 4000 rpm in the other gears? next time you riding it and have this problem, try pulling the chock out just a little and see if it helps or hurts. if it helps it is to lean if it hurts it is to rich. hope this helps you get to the problem. Brian

My Harley 883 Sportster suddenly became stuck in 5th gear.


More than likely the shifter pawl has broken. Breaking in 5th gear is kind of unusual however, they usually break between first and second.

You'll have to remove the outer primary cover to look at the shifter pawl. It's partially covered by the clutch assembly.

While riding, the 4th and 5th gears do not engage promptly when you clutch and shift the gear. It sort of goes into neutral as one disengages the clutch and accelerate and then falls in place (ie 4th or...


This behavior is the symptom that your clutch plates are getting worn out. Since power is transmitted from the cam shaft to the front sprocket (smaller dia) is better at lower gears but once the rpm increases the clutch plates do not catch up with the cams rotation, hence slipping at higher gears & in between 4th & 5th gears the pulling power of the engine seems to go to neutral before engaging again. Check your clutch plates as well as the sprocket-chain- rear sprocket for wearing out of the gear teeth & replace if required. You will get back full power & acceleration as when the bike was new.............sodeep

Yz 250 2008 possible 5th gear stripped, or shifting fork bent?


Do an oil change. If the gear were stripped there will be lots of metal particles in the oil. More than likely the fork is slightly bent such that the slider for fifth gear is just barely engaging. Put pressure on it by increased throttle and it pops out.

Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock.

Yz 250 2008 possible 5th gear stripped?


I doubt that any gears are stripped. Believe me you would have known it when it happened at 40mph which is where you would have to be in 5th gear. This is a bent shift fork. The actual gear is fine. The slider gear is not moving far enough to engage with 5th gear. The YZ does tend to have this problem in 5th and 1st. "Dirt rider Magazine " did a story on it. Best to let the shop do the repair as the entire motor gets torn down into about 100 parts.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!
