CB550 Transmission Prob. Bummer.

2250 Views 6 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  embraceeternal
So I installed an untested CB550 engine into my bike. I hooked the clutch cable up and made the necessary adjustments. Well I can't shift. I don't think I can seperate the clutch plates any more than I am as the adjusters are maxed out. The transmission stays locked in gear even with the clutch pulled in. What's the deal. Have any of you experienced this? Am I missing something totally obvious? Thanks for any help.

Thanks for the advice guys. I'll give it a try.

The bike with shift into neutral, 1st and 2nd without the clutch lever pulled in. If I do put it in gear the bike won't roll.
Guys thanks so much for your advice. I pulled the cover, seperated the clutch plates manually and it worked. I rode the bike this evening 7 months after beginning repair work. It felt great.
