The screws holding the backing plate for the gear selector fork may be loose, allowing a slight shift in alignment of return gear. There is a spring under some pressure holding everything in place, this maybe coming out of its location as well. It will require the removal of the sprocket cover and gear selector cover to access these retaining screws.
Depending on the type/model of the bike, it is a relatively simple motorcycle toolkit fix.
Would need to know specific bike for optimum advice, cheers.

When you put it into gear gets hung up in between two gears


My dad always lectured me to "look for the most likely or obvious things first." First, for a moment, I'll assume you're talking about an automatic transmission... If so, check the ATF (automatic transmission fluid) level.. Correcting any problem there just might fix you up.
If you're talking about a manual shift transmission, and I'm afraid that you are, that's a whole different deal. There's a mechanism, and it can either be on the outside.. or the inside of a transmission... that's allowing one shifting lever to remain engaging a gear.. as you're trying to engage another gear with a different shifting lever. A vehicle will not move very far if it is in two gears. The idea of it actually being between two gears or being in two gears at once, is quite concerning. A broken shifting fork inside the transmission can cause this.. If there's shifting linkage you can get to, you can try to make sure that all linkage is in the neutral position. If you can accomplish that, it should go... and you'll need to take it easier on your shifting gears... because, unless you get some repairs made, it can easily happen again. If you get all the linkage in a neutral position... and then the car is willing to go, that means it is still in a gear... which is bad.... Your transmission needs work.

Wont go in 2nd gear


If it will go into all other gears but not second, the transmission may have damage like a bent shift fork, damaged gears and/or shift drum. If the bike has been raced or accelerated hard and gear shifts have been missed, it most likely has transmission damage and the engine will have to come out and be torn down in order to repair. If the bike was hopping in and out of second gear before it stopped going into second, the transmission is most likely damaged.
One more thing to try is to take the shift lever and push momentarily down or up on the lever and see if it smoothly returns to its original center position. If it does return to the center position the lever is not sticking and ir it does not return to center position then the shift lever is sticking and that will keep the trans from up or down shifting.

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.

I changed engine oil then when shifting only had 1st &2nd, shift linkage was full up position. would over filling the engine oil cause shifting problems


No, engine oil would have no effect on the transmission. When a big twin will not shift the problem is usually in the transmission. To test this, try to shift the transmission from first to fifth gear without the engine running. Rock the bike forward and backwards while trying to shif the gears. If you can go all the way up and back down, the transmission is alright.

If not and you can only shift from first to second, check the shift lever where it attaches to the shifter pawl shaft. Make sure that it is tight and not slipping. If it is tight and not slipping, it is probably your shifter pawl return spring.

With the transmission in neutral, lift the shifter lever with your hand until just before it shifts. Feel the spring tension. Now, depress the lever until just before it shifts into first gear. Does the spring tension feel the same in both directions? If not, the spring is probably broken. Do NOT start the engine if this is the case as further damage can be done to the transmission. To repair this requires a major disassembly of the transmission and is usually beyond the capability of those other than trained mechanics.

Good Luck

How do i on a motorcycle go to first gear from 5th


hi, if when you start your bike you press the gear lever down to go to 1st from neutral and then pull it back up to go to 2nd,3rd,4th and 5th then the only way to get back into first gear is to press the gear lever down 4 times to get it back into 1st gear their is no quicker way to do this you have to work your way back down the gears.

if your coming to a stop quick then just pull the clutch in and keep pushing the lever down until it dont push down any further it will only go down 1 gear at a time so you will need to push it down 4 times but you dont need to count you can just keep pressing it down the gears until it dont go down any more then you know this is first, you need to keep the clutch in when doing this.

how ever if your slowing down is more gradual then what you can do is go from 5th down to 4th then let engine slow the bike down then when the revs drop down change down to 3rd and so on until you get ot 1st gear.

if your coming to a stop quick say at lights or junction then if the bike is in 5th gear then you can change down the gears once the bike has stopped just hold the clutch in when you stop and keep tapping the gear lever down until you feel that its not going down any more gears this way you know its in 1st without having to cound down the gears, their id no quicker way of going down the gears to get to 1st.

i hope i have read your question right and gave you the answer you was looking for if i got the question wrong then please explain then i can assist you further ok

When I shift my 02 GSXR 600 the gear shift lever gets stuck


Get yourself a repair manual and find out what it says, but I think you are correct, the return spring is either broken or it has slipped. Try this site for a freebie manual:

Hi there,

Well, it seems like there is a problem with the shift return spring; it's on the backend of the gear, Seems broken or not attached properly, so first of all do this check.
