Shifter (Transmission) sticking on my 83 interstate

Postby edr421 » Sat May 29, 2010 8:57 pm



I swear that i saw something about this problem on this site, but I am having problems getting my shifter (Transmisson) into neutral and first gear when I stop. Can hit it down and it won't go into neutral when I park it. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi, When did you last change the clutch? I had that problem after the clutch discs had been replaced. The problem was that the basket hadn't been changed and the disc tabs were catching on the old ridges in the basket. What I ended up doing was taking a complete clutch and basket out of a parts motor I had picked up and replacing my old basket and new discs. Still have them for a just in case moment.

Common problem.."solutions" get into nuetral before you stop, put in neutral after you turn the engine off. Mine being like that for years but no other issues so not worth pulling the clutch.
HAD LOTS OF GOLDWING 75-83
NOW INTO 1500'S..RIDING A 1998 SE

FAIR WINDS,
RB
