My 84 Wing is ridable but I can only switch to higher gear when RPM is around 3000 and I cannot switch from 1st to neutral with running engine.
How is yours?

I always had problems with my 1200going from 1st into neutral when the engine was running unless the bike was moving. You might try bleeding your clutch and putting in fresh fluid. This may help a bit. Also, what weight oil are you using? I had more problems with mine when I used 20w50. Things worked a lot better with 10w40.

the cam is behind the "transmission cover" which is the front bottom where the water pump and oil filter are... I would try the other stuff first before tearing into it.... and, as above, they will are difficult to get into neutral standing still



but the rest of the shifting shouldn't be difficult.... everyone has mentioned commmon problems,,, such as bleeding your cltch master (do not, repeat, do not) let the resevoir go dry as if you get a bubble in the system it is a PITA to get out



also, you might try replacing about a qt of oil with marvel mystery oil.... run it a hundred or so miles and clean up any gunk off the clutch plates, then replace the oil

i also have trouble getting it into neutral but if i let the clutch out a little until it just engages first gear and pop it into neutral that will work for me

Bleeding the clutch and using the proper oil works for me, like rodger says don't let it go empty or your gonna have a fun time getting that air out. I've tried many oils that work for others and didn't for me, I'm currently using delo400 and it has been better as far as shifting goes, but it is getting time to change oil again so will be able to give more feedback on it from my engines stand point after another 3000 miles.

I had the same problem till I cleaned out the yuck in the master resivour and flushed / bleed the system. The first time I tired, I didn't pump enough new fluid thorugh. The 2nd time around I flushed nearly a pint of fluid through with a tube on the bleeder and made sure it was very clear. Sealed it up, bled from the top one last time as was recommended on this site and its been perfect since.

my wing shifts very easy from first to neutral, yours probably needs more clutch pressure, try bleeding it.
