Thread: Trouble finding neutral

  1. #11
    Haha Barrett, weíre both on the same page, but for the sake of being thorough I gave it one last college try. Iím ordering the clutch pack as we speak. Iíll update once I get it installed.

    Well guys, Iíve got the new clutch pack in and it still wonít find neutral. It definitely shifts better and the clutch pull is niceÖ but I still canít get the bike into neutral while running.

    You've probably tried this already. Back off on the primary chain adjustment.

    I’m digging into the primary. Does the clutch basket wear appear normal? There’s some slight gouging in the hub. The pushrod bearing seems good. Im pulling the basket to check the clutch basket bearing tomorrow. If that all checks out normal, im at a loss.

    The bike came with aftermarket levers. Is it possible the clutch lever is to blame?

    Thanks,

    Because you said this:

    then there is NO issue with clutch dragging, that commonly causes your issue.

    Replace the shift star, lever/roller, and spring. Perhaps the detent is worn, the roller loose, or the springs weak. All super rare things but Heck, you're in there already, we're all guessing now, and it's not my money or my time.

    I can tell you that adding a quick shifter certainly helps this common issue (and a fantastic addition). They are so rudimentary on a Buell that it still kills the ign (80mS) at idle and on the 1-N shift so it lets it drop into neutral easier. You never even posted what year your bike is so go find it yourself at Rev-Mo.com

    YES.
    What's the distance between lever tip and perch tip in millimeters at full operating temp with lever at full disengagement? Fat bulky grips also strongly affect clutch lever pull to full disengagment.

    Not trying to be a Richard Cranium but what is a verifiable fluid type?
    There has been some great advice here on just backing off the primary chain tension just as a test. If you open up the primary and you have a dial indicator, I would check to see if your transmission input shaft bearing is toast and even though you have what the proper adjustment is, it could be in a bind if your input shaft bearing is junk.
