VStar 1100 wont go in gear - stuck in neutral
Huh I have a 2001 VStar 1100 Classic. A few days ago the shifter felt like it was sticking, just hard to shift up or down. I was going to drive it home and check on it when I went to down shift, it went into neutral and now won't go in gear. The clutch, linkage and such seems fine. Could it be the screw holding shift drum, or a bent fork? I have a mechanic that has it in his garage, but he only works on Harley and is cautious about going deeper into the engine at this point.

hey Kevin, welcome to the forum, bet its the shifter screw, it backs out, so be time for a oil change and some good thread lock on it. just had another member earlier this week with similar issue, not as bad quite yet, mine i couldn go past 2nd.

I appreciate it so much. I sure hope that is it. I've been worried it was going to cost a fortune since my friend might not be able to fix it. Bike only has 18K on it as a 2001 and so I just couldn't see it being a huge issue. But still don't know. I'll keep ya posted.

i bet thats it, easy fix, i just didn know when it happened and did not have the time to fix it then, mine was 02 and only about the same miles as yours then, now am almost at 39k and no issues since.
