Hi,

I have a gl 1100 from 81 that has been sitting for over 5 years.
I cleaned the carbs and now she is running good.
My only problem is that i have a false neutral between 4 end 5 and sometimes between 3th and 4th gear.

I removed the shift cover so i can see the shift drum turning. (like the picture below)
The schift drum is turning but it stops in between the 2 gears if i shift a little harder it turns farther and gows in gear.

What can be the problem that the shift drum is not turning far enough to click in gear? And if i then shift harder it suddenly turns farther in to gear.

Thnx,

Make sure the shifter is not hitting anything on the up stroke. Otherwise it could be a loose bolt on the linkage inside the case.

Are you riding when its doing this? Both gear shafts need to be turning to go into gear, thats the nature of Honda gearboxes

You're not shifting hard enough? No, seriously.

Yes i have this when i'm riding that i'm in between gears.
But when i take off the cover to inspect i just turn the back wheel...

And no its not hitting anything on the up stroke.

Just turning the back wheel will not get all the gears, you need to turn engine as well
