If you haven't damaged the transmission yet ( and you could have) the shifter and it's linkage are most often at fault. the joints in the links are lubable and if they get any play in them they'll need to be replaced. Where the shaft of the shifter goes into the case theirs a bearing and a seal if the shft has been bent it may have to be straightened or replaced. The clutch and it's cable are also likly. the clutch cable neds to work smoothly and if it's old and binding replace it bike bandit . com in the aftermarket parts under control will sell you a new one and it'll make it shift much better. You might find just taking the cable off and cleaning it and giving it a good soaking in lube might fit it right up. the clutch might just need to be adjusted and hopefully not replaced. Yes you could have bent the shift forks in the transmission but this is a job for a professional and cernainly not a job for someone that's doing it for the first time.

It sounds like the gearbox is just getting worn and needs parts replacing.

I have a 96 s10 sonoma 5speed i went to shift to third gear and its stuck. even in neutral it still in third gear. What do i need done ?


Did you try to pop the clutch? Did you mistakenly down-shift while still at high speed? did you try to down-shift for more torque while going uphill? You may have ruined your clutch.

I need 2,3 & 4 gear for Yamaha 1100 special 1982 model


Instructions
    • 1 The gears on a motorcycle run in this order: first, neutral, second, third, fourth and fifth. When you are moving, shifting up from first gear will skip over neutral and shift you right into second gear. The only time that shifting up from first will get you into neutral is when you are not moving.
    • 2 Pull in the clutch lever and tap the gear lever down until it stops. This will signify first gear. Pressing the gear lever down will shift you down one step and pressing it up will shift up one step.
    • 3 Tap the gear lever up one click while still holding in the clutch. This will put the bike into neutral.
    • 4 Start the bike. The bike needs to be in neutral to start.
    • 5 Hold in the clutch lever and tap the shifting lever down to shift to first gear.
    • 6 Release the clutch slowly and give it just enough gas to get moving.
    • 7 Listen to the motor to know when you need to shift. If the engine is making a low grumbling noise, then it will need to be shifted down. If it is making a high squealing noise, then it needs to be shifted up.

I would fix the clutch first and see if this improves things.
If it creeps this is why it wont select neutral.
The clutch basket can wear out as well as the clutch plates

I have a 1999 Lexus ES300 that will not go into reverse or shift out of second gear, et pulls good and hard in first and second. No noises or slippage at all. Does anyone know of a shift sensor or computer...


There is nothing electrical that will keep the trans from going into reverse. The direct clutches ( third ) are used in reverse. I would guess you have a direct clutch problem. Time for a rebuild or replacement.

Sounds as if you need a new clutch plate. Try starting in a higher gear and if you have excessive slippage, that's what it is.

Auto tranny slipping after shifting out of second


Firstly is it slow for reverse, reverse clutch also engages in 3rd gear however reverse has a boosted circuit (more psi) therefore will engage rev but not 3rd but it is a little slow for reverse.
They do have a tendancy to pop a ball out of the High and reverse clutch giving this symptom.

Gearbox 'clank', and someting sounding like it is loose


This will become more dangerous over time. Go to your dealer. This will be cheaper than an (uninsured) crash when you cannot drive out of trouble because you ignored your broken gearbox. This will invalidate your insurance.

Gearbox 'clank', and someting sounding like it is loose


Sorry but it's not loose, you have a bad shifting fork. The first gear fork is going or gone which causes the mis-shifting. You are hearing the clutch basket most likely. With the backlash in the gearbox you can get a noise coming from the clutch hub coming lose from the primary drive gear it is attached to. I also believe there is a chain for the harmonic balancer that needs to be adjusted. It makes a nasty noise and sounds like the engine is almost grinding when it does it. The noise will go away under accelleration.
