On topic, pull the lever, blip the throttle, try and shift again. Thats my fix, always works. Sometimes its just gonna shift harder though.

if the light turns green while you're rolling up to it in neutral, pull the clutch in, give it a little gas just to get your RPM's up, shift, then resume like normal. You want to match your engine speed as best as possible.

If you're stopped at a traffic light and first gear won't engage. Release the clutch while in neutral, pull the clutch lever again and then shift into first.

Do yall not power-shift?... this is the racing thread isnt it? ok so:

once your off in first, you never need to use the clutch until your coming to a stop.

apply slight pressure to the shifter (easiest to learn on up-shifts), blip the throttle, and whee, your in second! no clutch! super pro! i've had 2 bikes over 50k miles with no clutch/tranny issues.

also, you should never be in neutral at a light. you should always be in first. safety first.

And you shouldn't do the traditional Harley (gotta rev the engine when parked) because if you have a clutch cable and it breaks, you may find yourself in the middle of the intersection

How do you blip the throttle when you are WOT?

When it gets stuck in neutral at the track I try to match the revs to approximately where it should be on the tach for second gear for the speed you are going. Then shift using the clutch and it is relatively smooth and you won't grind the gears nearly as bad as just kicking it in gear without rev matching. If it is matched just right it feels smooth like you intended to do when going from first to second when you found the neutral.

I got the vortex rearsets on this weekend in time for MSRH. They definitely helped, I did not get any unintended neutrals.

got 2 false neutrals during practice. first one put me in the grass, second one managed to save it. usually i try to get back into gear, feather the clutch as needed.
