Question about Harley Davidson XL Sportster 883 Motorcycles
On your Sportster, you don't have to split the cases to repair the shift assembly or the shifter forks. All you have to do it remove the primary drive, (primary chain, engine sprocket, and clutch assembly) and the front belt pulley from the other side.
Then, there are four bolts that hold the access door of the transmission behind the clutch assembly. Remove these bolts and pry the door and both shafts of the transmission out.
I've never seen a problem with the shifting forks in ANY Harley transmission. I may have just been lucky but whenever I worked on transmission shifitng problems, it was always something else. Why do you think you need to pull the transmission. Odds are, your problem is in the shifter pawl. These are notorious for giving problems. Unless of course, you blew second gear trying to speed shift it.
