Re: Help! Stuck in First Gear
I'm guessing you are riding the bike on the street when you find it won't go into second gear? If not, have you put it on the center stand and shifted through the gears with the engine running? Is the clutch working properly when the lever is squeezed, engine running, and trans in first gear? .
If I find the bike doesn't go into first gear from neutral, I let the bike roll forward or backwards while pressing the shift lever down slightly. If you are having to force the transmission into first gear by stomping on the shifter, something's gonna give.
