No neutral while stationary after service

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by sunrise, Aug 9, 2010.

  1. My bike (Hyo250) had its 16k service 500km ago (oil/filter/valve check), and ever since then I'm rarely able to get it in neutral while its stationary.. If it's rolling a bit forward it's fine. Never had an issue before the service, it would go into neutral first time every time pretty much.. Thought it might disappear after a bit of a ride in, but 500k later it's still doing it. Apart from the obvious of taking it back to the shop, any ideas? The oil type/viscosity used perhaps?

  2. Take it back.
  3. Blip the throttle a bit before trying to get it in.
  4. Tried that too.. If I hold in the clutch, makes no diff.. If I release the clutch a little so the bike is rolling forward,then I can find H. (Neutral). :)
    But that doesn't solve the issue ...
  5. Hmm.. maybe on last service they have adjusted the clutch cable a little to tight.

    But I am by no means any power with a spanner, so suggest wait for one of the regular grease monkeys :D on here to reply

    Hope it gets sorted soon, I know it a frustrating little issue.
  6. take it back
  7. Mine used to do that..but that was more about the bike telling me to change the oil..which I did every 3000kms. Try adjusting the cable from the engine end..as opposed to the handle bar end.
    Edit..here's a linky to the Korider site..it has an article on this issue

  8. Difficulty selecting neutral is a classic symptom of clutch drag. Take it back and ask them to adjust it properly.

  10. This happened to mine after I changed the oil to motul. Never did figure it out. Just lived with it.
