Try adjusting the clutch. I always try to hit netral before I stop rolling. It is easy that way

SOURCE: Adjusted gear shifter incorrectly. Cannot locate neutral.

Ok.

Remove the rod altogether and get the lever in the position you want.

Once you're happy with that, pick up the rod and look at it. The threads at each end are the oppsite of each-other. One is right-handed (you turn it clockwise to tighten it up), the other is left-handed.

Take the two small locking nuts and wind them on to the correct ends of the connecting rod. DO NOT force anything if it feels like it doesn't want ot go, as you will cross-thread things and the assembly will be kaput.

Offer the rod up to the connecter at the foot pedal and the shift arm and gently screw in each end at the same time. Make sure that the threads match!! ie left handed thread on the right, and vice-versa. Once happy with the position, tighten up the locking nuts and off you go.

If you get stuck, re-post here and I'll help you further.

Ride safe!! :)

SOURCE: Stuck in first

You got it, bent shift fork. I think the manufacturers make them weak just to keep dealer service
departments in business. This is a pretty major repair.

A “very helpful” rating on this answer? Thanks!

Was on the highway and lost all gears in my 1993 4.0 v6 manual Ford Ranger XLT can't get it in the anything stuck in neutral second time this is happened what would it be


The gear shifter is broken. Sometimes you can still get the broken shifter to work by pushing it down (quite hard) as you try to find a gear .

Will not reverse. Shifter is hard to move at certain times. Seems 1st gear is in neutral position, so on


What's the model and make?

Look in the rear, if there is a release pin, there is where u will find it...pull it out, that allows you to free wheel... Without the info though, it's very hard to answer the question

1998 arctic cat 300..... hard to shift you have to


I do not know much if anything about an arctic cat but if you have a shifter you have some kind of a transmission and if you need to get it into gear or neutral but cannot do so without rocking the machine or the shifter back and forth a slipping clutch would not likely have anything to do with the problem. You likely should not be trying to shift gears with the clutch engaged and the clutch normally should be FULLY slipping ie completely disengaged when you are shifting. It sounds like you could have sticking shifter linkage parts, worn shifter parts or internal transmission parts, bent shifter forks, worn shifter cam or drum grooves or shifter fork pins or other worn parts or maybe even low or no transmission fluid.

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Clutch dragging slightly.
2. Primary chaincase overfilled with lubricant.
3. Corners wore off shifter clutch dogs.
4. Shifter return spring bent or broken.
5. Bent shifter rod.
6. A loose shift lever on shifter shaft.
7. Shifter forks sprung.
8. Shifter pawl needs adjusting.
9. Heel/toe shifter coming in contact with the floorboard.
10. Transmission oil too heavy.

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 [email protected]


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!!!
