Your gears should be spring loaded, try checking your gear shifter that you use to change gears is not lose and where the gear cable fastened on the drailier is also tight

The gears will not change at all. It seems like the part that you twist to change gears is seized on both sides. This is causing the bike to ride very slow.


Actually, it's causing you to have no gearing options. If you were Lance Armstrong the bike would move fast ;0) even with a flat tire.

Crimped, corroded shifter cables can prevent accurate shifting. I'm thinking you need a bike mechanic to look at it.

After it's all fixed you might want to view some resources concerning shifting, braking and general riding skills. It's all out there.

Google this "how to shift gears on a road bike" and choose from the many videos and articles.

The gears are there to allow you to match your effort to the conditions. It pays enormously to understand how to manage them.

Though I am an experienced cyclist and don't need to be taught shifting I thought this video was pretty good and gave him a buck for his efforts.

I have a 1984 Harley Davidson ,transmission problem:does not shift into 3rd gear after riding 25 miles.Just need some ideas what this problem could be.


Ok, we need to determine whether you have a transmission problem or a clutch problem. Ride the bike until it will no longer shift into third gear. Then stop the bike and turn the engine off. While rocking the bike backwards and forwards, try to shift the transmission though all the gears. If it shifts through the gears there, you have a clutch problem if it will not shift though all the gears, you have a transmission problem.

Please try this and repost with me. I need to know whether your transmission is a five speed or four speed. I seem to remember that those bikes had a four speed that year.

Let me know what you find.

Good luck

First time driving a 1967 Triumph motorcycle coming up. Would like advice on where stuff is like clutch, brake, shifter and how to shift -- where the gears are. Thanks. Art asanfelici@verizon.net


Hi Art! First of all, congratulations on your 1967 Triumph... that's a beauty!!!

Basic things to know before riding a bike is it's parts.

Clutch is the lever you press on the left side of the handle bar.

Front disc brake is the lever on the right side of the handle bar.

Shifter is the one you're stepping on when shifting gears and is located on the left side of the engine if you're on it.

Now, you must first know if the gear is on Neutral by pushing the bike before starting the bike. If it's hard to push then the shifter is not in neutral. Press the shifter by your left foot until you are able to push the bike with ease.

Hop on the bike and start the engine. Most bikes have ignition starters but if your bike doesn't have one, then you have to turn keys to on position and use the kick starter. Rev the engine by pressing the throttle grip on the right side of the handle bar.

Engine is running and in idle position. Press the Clutch lever (left hand) and press the shifter once (left foot) DO NOT RELEASE THE CLUTCH YET!!!

Slowly press the throttle with your right hand until you hear or feel the engine purr...

Slowly release the clutch (left hand) until you fell the bike move forward.

If I am not mistaken, shifting the gears of the triumph is 1-down and 4 up...

Every time you shift gears, you need to press the clutch to release the gears.

Hope you'll have fun!!!

Ride safe my friend!!!

Don't forget your riding gears!!!

The transmission on your bike is not syncronized like a cars trans. When you are trying to shift from neutral at speed you must slow down to allow the gears to mesh. As far as having to rock the bike into gear sometimes, I have owned eighteen motorcycles of different sizes and makes and have had to rock all of them at one time or another to get them in gear. again lack of syncronization. It really doesn't sound as if you have a problem.

Shift Bicycle Gears


To shift gear properly, while riding the bike you be sure you are turning the paddles, and shift the gear.
Try to avoid shifting gears while riding standing up, this stress the gear system.
