Have you lubricated the cable?
The main reason is a broken strand of bowden cable and it snaggs the outer cover.
Replace the cable in that case.

I HAVE A HARLEY SPORSTER 1200, WILL NOT SHIFT OUT OG GEAR, STAYS IN HIGH GEAR....HELP PLEASE..............


Sounds like the shifter pawl is broken. This is common in Sportsters. You'll have to pull your primary drive to repair it.

Disconnect your battery, drain the primary, loosen the primary chain adjuster and remove the outer primary cover. Take the engine sprocket nut loose. Remove the snap ring in the clutch assemble and remove the throwout bearing. Remove the mainshaft nut that holds the clutch assembly on. This nut has LEFT HANDED threads. Lift the engine sprocket, primary chain, and the clutch assembly out of the primary case.

Now, you can get to the shifting mechanism and determine what the problem is.

Good luck
Steve

I am in the process of purchasing a 2006 HD ultra classic. When I took the bike for a test ride, I noticed a loud "clang" when shifting into each gear. The noise disappeared after the shift. I spoke to...


I've never heard of a heavy duty clutch spring making a noise. Without being able to hear the noise, It's difficult to say what you're hearing. I would suspect that the clutch might not be releasing as it should, the clutch is dragging. Here's the easy way to tell. Put the bike in low gear, hold the clutch lever in, and start the engine. If the bike tries to pull forward, the clutch is dragging.

Clutch not disengaging completely when handle pulled completely. Wants to tug me across parking lot. Hard to shift at slow speed. to find neutral shut it off.


either your clutch needs to be adjusted or your clutch has something in it preventing it from fully releasing. either way its best to take it to the shop or someone who knows how to properly inspect the primary case. in my case, a plate fell apart and the rivets were in between the clutches.

Replace handle bars on a 2006 HarleyDavidson RoadKing


I added a 2 inch riser to my dyna and didnt have to replace any cables, so - to answer your question, not always. There is plenty of wiggle room, however, if there is gonna be more difference that about 2 inches, replacement will be required. ADJUSTMENT WILL DEFINITELY be needed. And no, its not difficult, when u have the bars off, its nearly 1/2 done anyway
