Why didn't Honda use a hydraulic clutch? Direct cable is going to hurt a lot of left hands!

Has anyone had an issue with shifting into 2nd seems when i do it gets stuck in neutral. i''ve been reading and it seems like everyone is saying the bike shifts smooth but mine isn't nearly as smooth as my 1300r was.

No problems here. I may have to loosen the grip some as mine is really tight. Barely have to pull for it to shift. If that is the correct terms.

HA! If you're complaining about this clutch, my Ducati's clutch was about 10 times stiffer. Personally, I would be able to grip the Fury's clutch all day long with no problems.

i'm not complaining about the clutch being stiff to pull but i'm having issues with shifting into 2nd. It seems to be getting caught in neutral and having to double clutch to get it to shift. just not shifting as smooth as i hear people talk about or as smooth as my VTX 1300r did either.

What you describe can sometimes be caused by the clutch not disengaging fully. My Fury's got just about the smoothest shifting I've ever felt. Is your clutch adjusted OK ?

Now i'm not a certified honda mechanic, but i did stay at a holiday inn express last night...


sounds to me like a simple clutch cable adjustment too.

my clutch works smooth as silk as well. the owners manual shows how to adjust that, or take it to the dealer if your not comfortable doing it yourself

i tried adjusting the clutch to me the inexperienced it seems like its adjusted per the manual but its still getting stuck in neutral and seems to be getting worse. Time to take it back to the dealer i guess.

I have had the same issue. It only happens every once in a while. I tightened up the clutch cable and haven't had any more issues. Just make sure you don't over tighten it.

I just installed a "Clutch Pull Relief" from VTX Home. Inexpensive and quick shipping. I measured clutch pull with a fish scale and got about 18 pounds on the stock setup and 10 pounds after. The reason I went for this is for trips like riding through Sturgis during the rally (over an hour and maybe 100 clutch pulls) or riding in parades where it is all start/stop. Did it myself (not a wrencher) and it took me over an hour to grind the damned rivet out. Didn't want to screw up the piece. The rivet puller you can rent from Glen is probably a better program. Nice easy pull now.

Will that work with the Kury engine cover?

I had the issue, and still do at times, If i shift kinda slow it hangs up there and between 4th and 5th. If i notice it a bit i adjust the cable tighter and all is back to being good
