Barry,when you shift down and then up can you tell if the shifter returns to a position or does it stay up when you shift? When you shift up and it does not spring back down some,can you push it down just a tad and the back up to another gear,it HAS TO RETURN TO A NEUTRAL SPOT before selecting another gear upward or downward.
What happens if you have the bike on the center stand, in neutral and running, pull the clutch in and push the shifter down? Does it go smoothly into first or does it growl or grind? If you let the clutch out, does the rear wheel turn smoothly?
i tested on a stand as you asked and it shift down as it should tier turned i shift it up one released the clutch nothing out of the ordinary rived motor tire spun let rpm drop and it wont shift up anymore but will shift back down but you cant wind the gears out so i thought that it had to be on the ground and moving to make shift right does the same thing its like when you shift up once you are at top gear and you are trying to get another gear but there is none there is no stall as if you go to first to fifth shifts smooth
Yes I was trying some of the suggestions that members have given me and it did shift up but that was not running just rocking it back and forth shift it down the neutral light came on but it was not in neutral I think I need to work with it it may be stuck from sitting so long but don’t understand if my neutral switch is bad or if I have to take the motor apart
