SOURCE: gear sticking after fluids change

If the problem started after a flush I would definitely re-bleed the system. I personally prefer to use Speed Bleeders.

SOURCE: 620 Transmission Problem

Have you looked at the countershaft sprocket? Also check the chain for kinks... Countershaft sprockets bend and chains stretch or bend side to side, Me thinks you got ^^^^ The gear boxes are almost over built on the 620's It would be hard to damage them. You might also check the belt timing as you might have spit a belt off, Or forced it to hop a tooth. Pulling the timing belt covers is easy. The timing marks are marked on the cases and pullies. Just line them up with motor in top dead center. The older monsters had bad countershaft bearing that would fail. Great way to check for internal damage is to drain the oil and check the pre-screen. Good Luck

SOURCE: 1995 900 sp clutch does not disengage when lever

hi,this may help,it sounds like your clutch plates are stuck together,this is quite common on bikes that have been parked up for a while,mine does it ocasionally,i fix it by getting the bike moving and crash starting it,once you have got it running and moving with the bike in the highest gear you can get it into(you can change up and down the gearbox without the clutch and not do any damage)simply pull the clutch lever in and roll on and off the throttle a couple of times and the clutch should disengage...hope this helps

Some thing is expanding with heat or moving slightly to cause a dead short
if the solenoid click when the fuse blows I would suspect the starter motor brushes / wiring, insulating washer on lead from solenoid or the starter motors internal components

I have an 83 Honda 500 shadow that will not turn off. I disconnected the ignition switch with the same results. The only way to turn off the electrical system is to disconnect the battery.

Check your starter solenoid . The main fuse is part of the starter solenoid and power goes directly from the battery to the solenoid. If there is a short from the main fuse wire to the solenoid that may be powering the bike . Next time you want to turn off the bike try unplugging the four prong plug to the solenoid . Look for the short there a new solenoid would run about $100 from Honda. The problem will either be a melted solenoid or a melted plug or both.

If the alternator tests OK. Consider the rare possibility that you have a bad magnet on the flywheel. Of course everything tests OK but you can not test a magnet you can only exchange flywheels to test. I dealt with the same problem on a 1980 gs 750. Everything tested OK but after a couple of days of riding the battery just ran out of power. If used parts are available and the cost of switching parts is not to bad , it should not be to hard to sort out.

Oil light on - bike won't start

I will guess that your bike cut off when you put it in gear because you still had the kickstand down. That is normal, it is a safety feature to keep you from riding away with it down and crashing when you make a left turn and the kickstand hits the ground.

To check your oil you have a sight glass. Stand the bike straight up and down and have someone look in the sight glass, it is probably on the lower part of the bike on the right side. The oil level should be above the middle, but not covering the whole glass.

Try this process. Go out to the bike, turn on the key and put it in neutral. Check your kill switch, make sure that is in the run position. Now try and start the bike and report back with what happens.
Does it turn over but won't start?
Does it refuse to turn over?
Do the lights come on the instrument cluster for a few seconds, then go out except for the low oil pressure light (normal for that to stay on unless the bike is running.

Electrical Questions Caponord Rally Raid

which gave me the following faul codes P0353 Ign coil 3 malfunction and P1357 Ign coil 3 Short circuit to vbatt/over temp I then started up the bike and the EFI light was flashing again. On checking the sensors page of Tuneboy it showed coils 12 & 4 with a dwell reading of 2.1-- whilst idleing but coil three would sit around 2.1 but would then drop right down to 0.4 for a few seconds before coming back up to 2.1ish. So the questions are, what does short circuit to vbatt/over temp mean? I assume that the fault codes and EFI light flashing are connected with the fluctuation of the dwell reading on coil three? Does this mean that coil three is on its way out and that I should order a new one? I should add that the bike is running fine. My main concern is that in two weeks time I'm taking the bike to France for 2 weeks / 2000+ miles and don't want to have coil problems whilst away. On a different subject (although still electrical) can anyone tell me the colours of the tacho feed wire, I have studied the diagram from the Caporider site and in my handbook but still can't find them,I had two coil failures. Both of them exhibited extreme dwell variance.,,,
