Well, the first thing to look for is a broken rear belt. If there's no belt to turn the rear wheel, the transmission will feel like it's in neutral regardless of the gear.

Also, pull the front pulley cover where the master cylinder is. Take a look at the front pulley, I've seen these strip the splines out of themselves under conditions like this.

If the rear belt and the pully is good, with the engine off, rock the bike backwards and forwards while attempting to shift the gears. Does the transmission shift? If you cannot feel it shift or attempt to shift, you may have a problem with the shifter pawl but usually this doesn't happen with doing a burn out.

If you cannot determine what the problem is this way, the only alternative is to pull the outer primary and keep on going until you find the problem.

Good luck

Some times when i change down from 3rd into 2nd i hit netraul and from 2nd into 1st i get netraul only happens when engine is hot. xl1200r 2006 model


The transmission "neutral" position is located between 2nd and 1st gear. You say you're also getting a "false neutral" between 3rd and 2nd. Since you say you're finding both, it leads me to suspect that you are not being aggressive enough when shifting the gears. The Sportster has the best shifting transmission of all the Harley motorcycles. Since it does shift so easily, riders sometimes "soft shift" the transmission and wind up missing gearshifts. This is the most likely problem, rider error.

Now, there is the possibility that the clutch is dragging but that usually effects the transmission when upshifting, not so much downshifting. With the engine off and switch on, put the transmission in gear, hold the clutch lever in, press the starter button. If the bike tries to move forward, you need to adjust the clutch.

My bike is not shifting into fourth gear, it goes into neutral instead of going into gear. The rest of the gears work fine, i have already tried adjusting the shift linkage to no avail. any help would be...


you might have something bent inside your tranny, there are things inside the tranny take can wear out cause a false neutral. i'm given you link so you can see the gear and things inside your tranny the gears side and lock into one another if the " dogs" that lock the gears together or worn it can cause a false neutral.

i would have a local shop take a look at it. lucky harley has a separate tranny from the motor while the can get very costly this could be your chance to upgrade, baker has a really nice 6 speed talk with your local shop.

I have a 2001 harley davidson 1200 sportster. while riding it,it


Sounds like you've broken a final drive belt. Look at the pulley on the rear wheel and see if the large final drive belt is there. Don't laugh, I've seen it before. When the final drive belt breaks, it simply runs itself out on the road and the rider never knows it until he stops somewhere. When he tries to take off, the bike won't go anywhere. If this isn't it, contact me at directly at wd4ity at bellsouth.net
