SE Six Speed gear set in 2000 RK Bagger Issue
Been screwing with my bagger for the last year, and put in a SE 6 speed gearset in my 2000 Road King Transmission housing. It's been a while since i put the trans in and just bench testing it it seemed to go thru the gears fine up and down. Well, it's (sorta) back on the road and it's hanging up on 3rd gear a bit, not wanting to grab 4th everytime, i have ran it thru to 6th but it hangs up on the downshift again at 3rd and sometimes 2nd. If i'm at a stop i can grab the linkage with my hand and pull it down into 1st but not with my foot. Strange.
So, would first step be removing top cover and physically looking at the gear changes? Any suggestions? It's almost like there isn't enough spring tension in the linkage. I was hoping someone out there is more familiar with the literal ins and outs of these SE gear sets.
