Anyone mechanically minded out there care to answer this transmission question for me

Hi,

I wondered if any can help me with a quick question. Not very mechanically minded :-(

I have a Street Triple and was out riding today and was pulling you to a stop at a traffic light and must have forgot to change down. I was in 3rd when I stoped and went to change down and it wouldnít shift into 2nd, pushed down on the shift level and just no clunk. This has happened before on this, and other bikes every now and then and I usually just carefully start to let out the clutch lever a tiny bit and pull it back in, thatís usually enough to jog something and letís me the shift down.

I did the same this time and when I let the clutch out a tiny bit and heard a slight noise for just a second (pulled the clutch back in) like 2 cogs very slightly rubbing/skimming against each other, not grinding or crunching or anything. Since the transmission is a constant mesh and all cogs are connected all the time, what was rubbing against each other and would this have caused any harm?

Also, what is the best way to get out of a stuck gear like that?

Thanks in advance for your help?

It's hard to type out how the transmission works in laymans terms so here's a few videos.



The next time you do that, hold the clutch in and roll the bike back and forth a little bit while shifting down. You may need to pull the clutch out a tad doing it, too, but it will get back into first.

+1 on rolling it back and forward, usually if you roll 4-8 inches youíll find the gear

Thanks guys. I had already watched the MC Garage vid. Any possible harm or damage done? There seemed to only be a light skimming/rubbing noise and only was for a second or two.

I slide up to red lights sometimes still in third gear, while pushing the shift lever down Iím letting the clutch out moving about 4 inches per gear until I find first or neutral. Doesnít hurt anything. Your just moving the shift fork mechanism over is all.
