Reverse gear does not work

Postby davidmring » Thu May 03, 2012 5:31 am



I have had trouble since I bought my 1500 with the reverse gear not staying engaged. I pull up the handle and it feels like it goes in and then nothing when I hit the reverse button. Just a little noise. Anyone have any suggestions?

You didn't say what year it is,but if this fits......
Download the 88-98 European service manual from above and look at the cable adjustments.There on the right side of the engine.
It sounds like the lever isn't fully engaging the gears.
The cables are operated from the lever on the left side.

My goldwing is a 1992 1500 SE and I wonder if you could post the link to download the service manual?

Thank you.
