Gear selection
« on: May 13, 2020, 09:21:34 PM »
Noticed today on my 2015 tiger that when I pull up at a junction in second and stop she won't go down to first, when I got home I left bike running and tried shifting up and down and nothing happens unless I release the clutch slightly and then it will change gear.
Any suggestions.

Not likely to be the usual shifter return spring problem because you can move through the gears and I assume you can still feel the 'return to center'.
Hopefully it's simply the clutch cable out of adjustment. Try that first. You have to get both shafts moving inside the gear box to get the gear dogs to engage, which is what you are doing when you let the clutch out slightly and roll the bike a bit.
Make sure your oil level is correct and within service limits.
Do the basics before thinking about more sinister reasons.
Laterally unstable unless moving.

I agree with Chuck. The clutch adjustment is thing I would look at then the age and amount of the gearbox oil.
If neither of those works take a look at this thread.

Hi
I had a similar problem last year which resulted in the bike being stuck in 4th gear. Assumed it was the Gear selector return spring as its a common problem (2014 with 11k at the time )  out of warranty and quoted silly prices so decided to do it myself . It wasnt the spring by the time I stripped everything but it was the detent wheel plate that had slightly worn on the teeth which made it not engage the wheel properly. The plate was about 30 and replaced the spring gasket and clutch retaining nut / washer plus an oil change so it came to around 100 all in and afternoon in the garage to do , which was better than the 400+ I was quoted . If its covered by the warranty Id head down that route but before it did let go I did notice that down changers were not as smooth. So your issue could be that ???

Just check the chain adjustment is good first

That is what the link I posted above is about.
