Is it possible the trainy gets too hot, and gets to were it doesn't want to shift?
by "hones"Well let's not beat on the FNG.He needs to learn the V-Rod just like we did.
Yall,just keep in mind,that the V-Rod does not have separate fill transmissions or primarys like the other styles of Harleys.This is why we need a top of the line oil that will handle severe abuse.
The late Vettes use #6 in their transmissions nowadays,good stuff.Of course there's better but I like the 6.I've been using it in the old transmissions when I do a complete rebuild.
I think if sikku1 hones the shifter bushings and lubes them up,his ill shifting condition when hot should go away.If not,let us know and we'll come up w plan B.
No,you need to remove the shifter from the frame rail and hone the plastic bushing.When I say shifter,I mean the part you use your foot on.by "hones"
you mean basically a good cleaning?
I rebuild many transmissions each week.The fluid can make,or break a good job.The fluid type is determined by the clutch material.awesome! glad to see you got it fixed.
oh elrod the #6 is great stuff, i actually just used it in a 4l60 I just rebuilt/upgraded to vette servos in a friend of mine's truck.
You don't have to make up for anything.A lot of my knowledge comes from making mistakes and correcting them.This forum was made for us to learn and share the enjoyment of our motorcycles,and it has become one of the most informative forums on the WWW.I didn't mean to high jack your tread !!!! I'm trying to make up for my three hole post ! I didn't know that there was only one hole on a v-rod ,so please a accept my apoligy for ignorance !!! Use a good Syn oil for your bike . Bud
