A10 plunger pops out of second gear
« on: 19.11. 2010 01:17 »
My newly rebuilt transmission pops out of second , mostly when cold.  I had the trans rebuilt several years ago but just got the bike back on the road so there's maybe 150-200 miles on it.  Any adjustments that I should make?

Yes adjustments are possible.

There is an indent spring arrangement, whereby a plunger in the box is pressed by a spring into a cam plate and holds it in a selected gear. That might need adjusting up.

If you use the search facility you will find loads of info on this.
