Most motors that are normally High rev motors need a break in period to correctly seat the rings,, which is why they run a thinner oil for break in , short trips will seat them at a better pace than a long trip which could cause over heating and warp problems, i ran Mine for 500 miles doing short trips in town, ( just remember to watch the battery charge as many starts will drop th voltage down faster than the alt can build it back up) Once I had the 500 miles logged, I changed oil and gave it hell !! enjoy but be safe!! Good Luck

I have a 94 f150 4.9l with a 5 speed manual and lost 2nd and 3rd gear, would be greatful for any advice, took the shift lever out and reinstalled , did not help. What am I missing or looking for?


I'd be looking for a replacement 5 speed transmission. Does it not go into 2nd and 3rd, or does it go in but won't move? Either way, something broke or is wrong internally, maybe the synchronizer rings are badly worn if it is difficult to put in gear. Can you put it in 2nd with engine off, then start the engine and see if it will move in 2nd? New tranny. Will it not go into 2 or 3? New tranny. Buy a used one, or check the rebuild cost- probably prohibitive.

Strange grinding Sound coming from bottom end of engine


If the bike sounds fine on idle and will rev freely then I would suspect the gearbox and particularly the power output shaft/drive shaft

2007 KAWASAKI VULCAN CLASSIC 2000CC. ENGINE "SOMETIMES" MISSES BETWEEN 2ND AND 3RD GEAR AND ONLY BETWEEN 2ND AND 3RD. THE ENGINE STUTTERS THEN PICKS UP AND RUNS FINE. SIMILAR TO WHEN THE RPM LIMITER KICKS...


Big twins can put a lot of stress on the spark plugs when under compression. You may also have a failing ignition coil, or a loose earth on your ignition system.

No second gear


Instructions

1.
The 2nd gear lockout is, a mechanical speed sensing mechanism. It doesn't care if the engine is running. You bypass it by scooting the bike forward, about 5-6 mph, while shifting the transmission into 2nd gear.
2

Stand on the left side of the bike, with the ignition "ON" and the transmission in neutral.
3 With your right foot on the ground, behind your left foot: place your left foot on the left foot peg, with your toe under the shifter; squeeze in the clutch.
*4.Scoot the bike forward about 5-6 mph, with your right foot, and shift the transmission into 2nd gear, with your left foot. If you accidentally go into 3rd, or some higher gear, you can easily shift back down into 2nd, without further movement of the bike.
5.To start the bike: Apply the choke if the engine is cold. Squeeze in the clutch and push the bike forward, both feet on the ground, about 8-12 mph. Release the clutch until the engine start
6
As soon as the engine starts: squeeze in the clutch and shift the bike into neutral.

I have not started by bike for about 4 months. i have just charged up the battery and re connected it. i had all lights and power but when i went so start it with the electric started all the power dropped...


Hi there and welcome to fixya,

try cleaning the spark plugs or better, replace them with a new set. Also, drain the carbs of its old fuel. pull the choke lever halfway then start, release the choke and start by not squeezing the throttle. If this fails, jump start it on 2nd-3rd gear with mild throttle hold the rpm for a while until engine heats up.

Hope this helps,

Manual gearbox query


hi fro uk this is a common problem on many cars not just hyundai and ita most common cause of synchro mesh failure on2nd and 3rd gear is believe or not a bad driving habit! it goes like this when you set off in 1st then cange up 2nd gear whilst accellerating holding gearstick? in back position then change up 3rd gear still holding gearstick! in a forward position then? when up to 4th gear we let go of gearstick?? now just by holding g/stick whilst in 2nd and 3rd the slightest pressure also brings the synchro ring into play whilst gear already selected! so inevitably the synchro ring wears away to extent that they no longer work properly so the gearbox is none synchromesh on 2nd 3rd gears and on occasions? on 5 speed box 4th gear can become a victim ? hope you understand ? just quietly observe some peoples habits with manual boxes? as for repairs?cost? this is not a difficult job to replace all synchro rings but box has to be stripped and assesed ? the cost could escalate? but if you want quick turnround? a matter of hours? a recon box with warranty? is other option ? BUT would not advise risking a 2nd hand box probably worse or same as ? whichever choice you take you can check clutch at same time if milage is high? now some good advice! personally this is not a dire problem just a niggleproblem which if you take time in changing gears you can o/come gritty gear change save money for now till it is more affordable ? if you know any old timers truck drivers ? these are the guys who will show you how to drive /change gears none synchro mesh before it was ever invented ? hope this helps daughter but practice on gears and rid of the bad driving habit so many do not realise they have will make her a better experienced!driver
