    Illustrated Parts Catalog for 2000 Buell S3 Thunderbolt

    Howdy All, I'm the prod new owner of a 2000 S3. I was able to find and download the Service Manual but I am looking for;
    - Illustrated Parts Catalog
    - Owners Manual

    The motorcycle is in great shape but it has something fishy going on in the transmission. I suspect the detent plat and pawls need to be reviewed because the bike is shifting very softly and it has slipped from 2nd gear into neutral a couple of times. I have adjusted the primary chain and clutch but the bike is still shifting softly. I believe the engine is very compatible to the 2003 Sportster 1200 XL Sport with some small changes. Unfortunately I do not know the extent of the small changes and would like to cross reference part numbers with a Parts Catalog.

    thank you

    Found the issue with my mushy shifter. The spring that pulls the leaver/roller into the detent plate was too large. In neutral or in any other gear there is no pressure on the detent plat and the shifter drum was free to rotate a tiny bit.

    Replaced the spring, no more false neutral or miss shifts
