The chain feels and sounds like it's jumping gears or slipping on the rear sprockets. It does it in all gears. It is a diamondback wildwood large 20"

The rear derailleur needs adjusting, once to establish limits (so it can't go past high gear or low gear). Everything else is up to you fine-adjusting the shifter to make the bike run quietly. If you're careless about your gear changes, you'll get MOSTLY into one gear but not quite perfectly, so the bike is always trying to start shifting into another gear - that's the sound you hear, the sensation you feel. Fine-tune your shifter positions each time you shift - you'll find a "sweet spot" where the bike runs almost perfectly silently.

No, they can't readily do that at the factory, not with chain drives. There are just too many things that can affect gear changes, and things are in a slightly different position every time you remove & replace the rear wheel, or even loosen & retighten it. Unless you're ready to spend vast dollars on a foolproof shifter system, shifting cleanly is going to be your job and your job alone. It's one measure of your bike riding skill... and the better you get at that skill, the better you feel about it.

...and your bike will like you for it.

Harley transmission slipping

Sounds like a clutch problem - the only thing that transfers drive from the engine to the rear wheel that can slip excessively is the clutch - other components can wear but not slip.

I know a huge amount of the Harley range use dry clutches not oil bath types like jap bikes.

Saying that it means its like a car clutch - these types of clutches do not like any abuse as they over heat and wear very quickly reesulting in slipping - as you are describing.

A oil bathed clutch shares the oil in the engine and has friction plates like an automatic gear box - because of the oil that can cool the clutch plates they last pretty much forever and don\'t wear from abuse.

Look at your clutch.

Six gear on my 2007 street glide feels like it is slipping the rpm shoots up when i go to pass a car over 65 miles per hour. the 6th gear light also turns off when i accelerate the lights back up after i...

Adjust the clutch and see if it helps. Find the cable adjuster in the clutch cable and move the rubber boot up or down. Loosen the lock nut and turn the cable adjuster in to get as much slack in the cable as possible. Then, take the derby cover off. In the middle of the clutch is the clutch adjuster. Loosen the lock nut and turn the adjuster screw inwards until you feel a resistance. Do not force the screw or you'll bust your inner clutch hub. Back the screw off and turn it in several times to get the feel of it. Turn it in until you feel the resistance and then back off 1/2 turn. Tighten the lock nut and replace the derby cover. Then go back to the cable adjuster and turn the adjuster barrel outwards until you have about an 1/8 inch of freeplay. Tighten the lock nut and replace the rubber boot. See if that will help your problem. The gears cannot slip as your transmission is a constant mesh type design.

Good Luck

How do I replace the clutch of my 2007 1200 GS Adventure?

Is your clutch slipping?? Is there an oil leak between the engine/trans?

Replacing the clutch on a R1200GS is a bit involved unless you are very mechanically skilled. You basically split the bike in half to remove the transmission and gain access to the clutch. You need a means of supporting the front half of the bike under the engine while you remove the back half of the bike. Disconnect electrical harness from the rear, disconnect brake lines to the rear of the bike. remove throttle bodies etc. takes 2-3 hours for a skilled mechanic to get the clutch out, then 4-6 hours to put all back together again CORRECTLY!

If the clutch is NOT slipping, I would suggest removal of the starter motor on the lower LHS of the engine/ trans. and measurement of the clutch disc before you start the work of disassembly

CLUTCH KEEPS SLIPPING, DESPITE LOOSENING CABLE,adjusting centre hex drive screw correctly and tightening nut. Then ADJUSTING CLUTCH CABLE SO TIGHT SO THAT I CAN SELECT GEARS. I cannot select gears when...

I read two contradictory things here. One the clutch is slipping and the other is it's dragging. Ok. here's something to check. Check your throwout bearing on the right side of the bike. Drain the tranny and take the clutch release cover off the transmission. The throwout beaing is a small wafer bearing about a half inch in diameter. It's held on by a miniture clip that is notorious for coming off. If during the engine swap you pull the clutch release rod outwards just a bit, the bearing could have fallen off. check this and replace if necessary.

Now if you have a stock clutch, loose the cable really loose. Break the lock nut loose in the center of the clutch assembly and turn the screw inwards until you feel the resistance. This is done AFTER you put the right side of the tranny back together. Do not force the screw. Do it several times until you get the feel of it. Once you feel the resistance, back the screw off about 1/2 turn and lock the lock nut. Adjust the cable adjuster outwards until you have 1/8" free play at the lever.

Do not overfill the primary with oil. the oil level should not be any higher than the lowest part of the clutch spring. Too much oil will cause the clutch to feel like it dragging an won't allow you to find neutral with the engine running.

Try that and see what happens. But, I'm going to tell you now, that the stock clutch is probably NOT going to hold that 127 inch engine. You're are probably going to need to beef up the clutch as well.

Good luck

I work in a fitness centre and we have schwynn bikes in our spinning studio. Customers keep complaining that some of the bikes are slipping?? Schwynn have assured us it is their technique and they are...

Schwinn may be right in that the spin bikes have a "clutch" on the flywheel that would keep it from causing to much damage to your leg if you slipped off the pedals. Also as the bikes get used these can become worn and require rebuilding, so some bikes wear faster than others so one may seem fine and another slips. Get on the bike pedal forwards and try to stop then you can feel it and see which slip more.

Kick start wont return and feels like its slipping out of gear

Sounds like a broken kickstart mechanism or spring. Youll have to take it apart to find the damage

Clutch problem?

ya used the wrong oil in the gear box, the clutch is slipping, to fix thhis it could be as easy as proper oil replacement in the gearbox or as bad as new clutches, the oil you use in a bike is VERY important as some cause clutches to slip and others to grab depending on the weight.
