Finally got the bike running and the transmission is doing some weird stuff.

From neutral the transmission will only go into what appears to be 1st. but you have to press the selector down at least 4 times. Going up there is nothing.

The transmission also seems to be slipping in and out of gear, and clunks like a mother.

Judging by the license plate tag, the bike hasn't been running since 1998 so I'm wondering if running it a bit might free her up or is this a lost cause?

usually when you have problems with the tranny from sitting, it is because the clutch is stuck or dragging. A dragging clutch would definatly clunk, and may lock you out of second and subsequent gears.

I have done the shifter mod, and she changes gears much easier now. However I noticed that my neutral seems to fall between 2nd and 3rd. Or at least while in "neutral" the clutch shaft will still turn the rear wheel and 2nd does not (although it doesn't seem completely disengaged).


Any thoughts?
