Will not shift into 4th or 5th gear

Recommended Posts

I had difficulty shifting my 99 RSV to the point of it wouldn't shift at all once and found the pivot bolt that holds the HT shifter on was almost completely out. Tightened it and have not had any trouble since. Others have said that their linkage not being lubed properly made shifting hard and sometimes prevented it from going in gear.


Not sure if that helps or not.


Good Luck

I Had A 96 Four Years Ago. It Did Almost The Same Thing. No First Or 5th. The Star Washer Sounds Like Your Problem Too. In Fact It Was Four Years Ago To The Month. DON'T try to force it into gear. The shift fork is VERY soft alluminum and will bend way out of shape.
