Question about 2006 Harley Davidson XL 1200 R Sporster Roadster

1 Answer

I my wife has a, 2008 xr 1200 r. On the way back from a rally she stalled at a light and could not get it into neutral. The bike will not start without it being in natural. I kept playing with the shifter and got it into natural. This happened 3 times after that. She said it was like the bike would not downshift into first gear. We were in heavy traffic on a cool day. The bike just had a 3k service from HD. What do I need to look for

Sounds like a dragging clutch, is this a hydraulic clutch? If so it might need bleeding.

2006 rt 1200 wont start new battery neutral and first gear dont show on dash


The fact that the neutral light does not show up on the dash may indicate that the gear position indicator is not calibrated correctly. Does the bike start with the clutch pulled in?

2003 Honda XR 125 L neutral light stays on in all gears


Hi, Mick and the usual suspects are:
1. Neutral light bulb burnt out.
2. Faulty neutral switch.
3. A loose bulb in the socket.
4. Faulty wiring from the neutral switch to the light.
5. If the neutral light stays on while the bike is in gear the wire from the light to the neutral switch is grounded.

I was backing up the bike in neutral when the bike came to a complete stop. i forced it loose and at the same time i heard a noise that sounded like a metal bang, ring. the bike started moving easily...


Hi Hugo, I'm sorry but I just loaned my listening ears to the lead technician at your local Harley Dealer so he could take your bike for a test ride and evaluate the noise. Good luck and have a nice day.

AFTER STARTING THE BIKE WHEN SHIFTING INTO GEAR FROM NEUTRAL THE BIKE STALLS LIKE THE CLUTCH ISNT IN.


Check for a micros switch on the sidestand, you may have to have the side stand up before you can put it in gear.
