Anyone have Sticking shifter or hard to shift from 1st to 2nd, then 2nd to 3rd on a Softail std? Mine’s a 2000. On first couple shifts of the day can’t shift from 1st for a brief moment…then hard, loud shifts on 1st two up. Only happens when bike is in motion; downshifting is fine, and when stopped, shifts nice and easy. Clutch has been adjusted. So far I’ve been able to find these possible web causes: Bent Shifter Rod, Clutch dragging slightly, Shifter forks (inside transmission) sprung, Corners worn off shifter clutch dogs (inside transmission), Transmission lubricant too heavy, Clutch controls are improperly adjusted, Cable adjustment is improper or worn cable, Improper adjustment on drive train chain or belts, Improper oil in primary chaincase for wet clutch, Transmission or gear box problems, Primary chaincase needs cleaning. Please advise w/any suggestions.



Thanks, Larry
