2002 Monster 620 ieS-Yellow/1966 Ducati Monza-red


« on: August 28, 2008, 12:09:30 AM »

Riding home from work tonight and about a km from home, couldn't change down into second or first.  Kept going and on stopping can now only select fourth or fifth.  The gearlever doesn't seen to return to a mid position, just drops down.  What's up...any ideas??
2002 620ie, I've put about 80k on her, runs daily 150km...no indications of impending doom at all.  Huh?

Doesn't sound good at all. I recommend taking the bike to the boys at the Ducshop.

Might be the claw arm in the shift mechanism.

Take it to the Ducshop, they are great at what they do, and honest people.

It could be a bent shift fork in the case. It could just be that the foot lever is not on very tight. If you ave any play where it attaches to the spline this can happen. Just push it back on tight and tighten the pinch bolt.

Your shifter may have come loose under the left side engine cover.  I have the alignment tool to set it up properly if you want to borrow it or I can help you with it.

I hope they took care of this issue last year.
