Just ran the bike for the first time today since 1983. It shifts into first and neutral just fine but won't go any further up into second. I inherited it from my dad and tore it down to have everything repainted. He says it ran wonderfully when he put it in storage and it has 6300 miles on it.
Could I have shift lever in the wrong position? Would that even prevent it from shifting any further?
Rusty - I sesee there were no replies to your shift problem. Have you figured it out? I have the same problem but have pretty much eliminated the clutch. I think I may have pinched the shift linkage when I put the cases back together after replacing the timing chain and rollers. What did youfind was the problem or have you?
