I was out riding this weekend and I noticed my 89 FXR kept missing forth gear, when I say missing I mean I shift up to it and it does not engage, I double shift it and then it shifts into gear. This is a 5 speed.

This just started this weekend, and I checked the fluild and it is ok I think. I screwed the cap down and it shows to the full line, Should I be screwing the cap down to check the fluid or just insert the dip stick without screwing it down.

This does not appear to be a clutch issue and the clutch is working fine.

This is only happening when I get up to forth gear.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Yes I have a manual and I read the part about adjusting the trans but would like to get input prior to tearing into the trans.

Sorry failed to use the search function first! :huh:

nevermind guys, I did a search and found what I needed, I will try the pawl adjustment first and see what happens, I will also check out the spring there as well.
