Clutch springs maybe. I would take it in.
A bit late but may still help in the future.
Barring any mechanical problems, this is usually the cause of this problem
the trans arm on the trans on my bagger is lose i changed it once now it is lose the nut is tight
any ideas on how to fix without taking the primary apart
If you remove the bolt in the arm and replace it with another longer bolt without the shoulder on it so it extends through the arm and locknut the extended end, it will usually save what's left of the splines.
I feel the problem is caused by the bolt shoulder bottoming out before enough tightening force is applied to the arm.
It's a tight spot to work in but with the proper tools it can be done.
got a longer bolt and it's now thight thank i'll have to keep an eye on it
Ghost rider - am having the same problem gear shift problem with my bike. Can you tell me what your buddy did to eventually fix the problem?
Just had my shift lever drop,same as in original post, pulled tranny cover and return spring looks to be in one piece. Any suggestions as to the problem? Didn't seem to really get answered in original thread. Clutch or return spring?
