Sometimes when I try and get into scond gear it pops back into neutral...any ideas why ?
Clutch adjustment possibly and maybe you need a better lube in the primary like Spectro platinum.
Oil Suggestions For Harleys - Harley Davidson Community
If new to Harley, you need to shift with a solid and firm movement of the shifter lever. And the advice Glider has given will make it shift very smoothly.
I use to get a "kick back" on the 1=>2 shift only. Figured I would give the Spectro Platinum 6 Speed a try like Glider said. The 1-2 kick back just disappeared plus neutral is much easier to find. Amazing to me that a fix could come out of a bottle because I was using good oil and the clutch was perfectly adjusted.
Is that something I add to the transmisson fluid...
No, it's a replacement with a gear oil instead of something else that you are running now.
No. Drain and refill.
I never thought I would ever pay $20 a quart for oil, but it is worth it.
Can I get it at the local HD dealer
If they carry that line, look in the link I posted above.
+1 on the better gear lube making a world of difference. I use Redline, but would not hesitate to use the Spectro. It made the tranny quieter, smoother, easier to find neutral.
The H/D formula+ is good, but so is 87 octane. Why settle for just "good" when there is better out there?
