  • Grinding when letting the clutch out in neutral?

    Probably should have stayed home (not) but in addition to my poor girl's bladder problem that I posted in another section, when I got home I popped her into neutral and every time I started letting the clutch out the trans was grinding. Got to the point where I just shut her off and then let the clutch out. Any ideas guys?

    Could be you are halfway between second and third or third and fourth.

      Maybe inner primary bearing? If your stopped in gear the bearing isn't turning until you let out the clutch. Just a shot in the dark. Just reread your post disregard.

          Are you guys saying I might have found a false neutral, instead of between 1 and 2? I will have to check it out, can only hope it is something that simple.

              When I first got my '81 FLT, when I was riding I would hit neutral when shifting through the gears. If I remember right it could happen on any shift, up or down. In my case I just wasn't putting enough force into the shifter when I hit it. Not suggesting you're doing something wrong, just saying I was hitting a false neutral quite regularly on a tranny that has since proven to be in perfect working order.

                Having had a couple bikes with really sloppy shift linkages, which made the shifting crunchy and clunky and easily found all the false neutrals between every gear, I've found that new, tight, slop free linkages can do wonders for your shifting. One bike had a shifter arm that moved maybe 30 degrees with a bunch of stiction, so the box was never getting a "positive shift" and when I installed new quality forward controls with slop-free action, and it transformed that gearbox into as good as any gearbox I've ever used, on any bike.

                On my 79, my shift lever on the trans was moving due to a loose nut and use, which caused the square hole to wallow out, so I basically had the same action on the previous bike I referred to. After addressing that shift arm, even with the stock "Rube Goldberg" linkage setup the Moco used on 79's and up, my shifting is absolutely sweet!

                Nice, tight linkages and no slop makes a huge difference on our gearbox shifting.

                  No worries, had a similar incident with my new '94 LowRider. Dropped it off for service for the first time (stealership told me it would void my warranty if I didn't do the regular services for the first year, which I later learned was bullshit). Got the bike back, it kept hitting neutral between 2-3 and 4-5, took it back like WTF? They kept if for a few days, gave it back, said they adjusted the trans, same thing. I took it back, told them to keep it until it was fixed, it was in the shop over a month (this was the middle of summer)! Finally told them to give me the bike back I'm taking it somewhere else. Went to another stealership, the tech took it out for a ride, came back and grabbed an allen wrench. Showed me where they had taken the shift lever off, and when they put it back on they butted it up tight against the outer primary and tightened it. He said there needed to be a slight amount of slop in order for it to work right. Never had a problem with it again. Dumb fucks...

                      I would make VERY sure your clutch is working properly. Can you find neutral at a stop from 1st gear easily? A sticky clutch can act like a bunch of different things.
