TRANSMISSION STUCK

Postby sonnyboy » Tue Jul 21, 2009 5:53 pm



ON A RECENT 3 DAY RIDE MY 87 ASPENCADE STUCK IN 2nd GEAR. I HAVE WORKED ON BIKES SINCE THE LATE 60'S AND HAVE FOUND MOST SHIFT PROBLEMS ARE SHIFTER RELATED AND NOT XMISSION. ANY THOUGHTS ON THIS?

I would start by checking the shift mechanism located inside the front engine cover(below the timing belts). Ernie

Thank's Ernie,
That was my first thought, I just wondered if anyone has had a similar problem. The GW Xmissions are usually bullet proof.

I've got the front cover of my GL1100 off right now (replacing water pump). If you're planning to take it off, expect to spend a fair amount of time removing 25-odd year old gasket material! I think I spent almost two hours alone on that part of the task. :)

Thasnks,
I've been there with the gasket removal. Can the front cover be removed without pulling the engine?

Absolutely. It's easier to do it if you remove the radiator, but you don't have to.

There's a lot of O-rings, and two gaskets.
