GL1100 Shifting Problem

Post by simcor » Sat May 31, 2014 3:40 pm

I purchased 81 Gl1100 not running and went thru the carbs with a Randakk's kit and the engine now runs great.. The light comes on when it's in neutral, I pull the clutch and it goes into first, shifts into second, then I can't shift up after second during my test ride. I can shift back down into first and hit neutral... and the gear shift seams stiff.

With the engine idling on the center stand.. I can run thru all the gears by hand w/o using the clutch. I also hear a whining noise at the clutch w/ a mechanics stethoscope.

It's my first golding .. Any advice? Is the clutch bad?

Appreciate the help...
