Tranny Locked Up

Post by gaillarry » Mon Aug 03, 2009 7:09 am

My 86 GL1200A was running great until I shifted into top gear and it now won't shift out of it. Is there an easy fix or is it necessary to pull the engine.

I would start by checking the shift mechanism located under the front engine cover. This can be inspected without removing the engine. If everything looks OK there, then it's probably an internal problem and the cases will have to be split.
