2017 GL1800A reverse not working

Post by johnusmcret »

So after having the bike in and out of the shop several times since hitting the bear last year, I go to use my reverse and it works intermittently. When it doesn't work, I hear a clicking like a clutch that slips. No electrical issues that I see. I ordered a service manual from wingstuff only to find they are on backorder from Honda. I wondered if someone could help direct me in adjusting the cables, assuming that is the issue. Why not take it back to the shop you ask? I have had my share of problems with them and I thought this might be easy enough I can do on my own.

If they are in the same location as the earlier 1800s, they are under the right engine side cover.
