This is more common than people think. You have a broken shifter pawl spring. All you'll have is low and second gear. With the transmission in neutral, use your fingers to push down on the shifter lever like you're going to shift into low gear but don't shift all the way. What you're doing is feeling of the spring tension on the shifter trying to push it back to the neutral position. Now. lift the shift lever and feel the tension on the spring. I'm betting they don't feel the same. If this is the problem, it is a major job to repair. The transmission gear shafts much come out of the transmission as well as the inner primary. You can take the shafts out of the transmission while leaving them intact in the trap door. Once you get all the gears out of the way, the shifter pawl shaft will come out. I'd advise replacement with one of the improved aftermarket shifter shafts.

Good Luck

There is a large bolt on either side of the seat down on the side. It uses a large hex key to remove them. Take these two bolts out, lift the seat and pull to the rear. That should do it.

Can not changedown gears onece and awile makes nose on 01 harritige classic soft tail most part gears change good but very loud its a clean snap but loud oil once and a wile leeks from air filter dealer...


Haryley tranny's do make a lot of noise, a good clean snap is normal. I ride a sporster and oil through the air filter is normal. Try running it a little low on oil it will help and it won't hurt the engine.
