Sometimes, I wish I had opted for Baker's N1 shift drum when I rebuilt my tranny last year. Between my Bandit clutch and Bel-Ray fluid, a little blip of the throttle and it drops into N almost every time. But the N1 would solve it once and for all.

Have you tried adjusting your clutch cable? I’ve also let the clutch out, just a little, from a stop and roll forward a foot and right as you pull the clutch all the way in shift up half a click, it usually goes right into neutral.

This happened to me occasionally on my old Twin Cam Road King. That was my signal that my clutch needed adjusting. A quick cable adjustment and it cured it every time.

I can't speak for the others, but in my case I just had a new Barnett clutch pack installed and adjusted. It shifts better than ever from gear to gear, up or down, but neutral is still among the missing. I didn't get out the door this afternoon but will be riding tomorrow a.m. so I'll try the side force trick.

Well my wife has trouble finding neutral on her bike so I told her about this video and she gave it a try. No problem finding neutral all day. Thanks for the tip it works and made her very happy.

That is really great news. It worked for me on my metric bike and as I used the technique, it just become second nature….. and it just worked.

So glad it worked in this case

I have a 2013 Roadglide FLTRX, 103 engine. I am having issues shifting from 1st to Neutral at low RPMs with the clutch pulled in. When I am riding, I have no problem shifting through all of the gears. When I am approaching a light or a stop sign, I would shift to 1st, then try to bum it in Neutral.

For some odd reason, it seems very difficult to get the bike in Neutral. I feel like I have to force it in Neutral, and it still doesn't go in Neutral. I have use my toe and heel to shift to Neutral and still no luck.

What I am currently doing to rectify the issue at a light or a stop sign, is roll the throttle, bring the RPMs up, then I am able to get the bike in Neutral. Otherwise, I have to keep the bike in 1st and squeeze the clutch. That's getting very old, because some lights stay red longer than others.

I am putting this on the forum, to see if others ever had this problem and what was done to rectify the situation. There has to be a better way, than what I am currently doing. Any assistances will be great appreciated.

A concern RGFLTRX (2013) rider. This issue is very frustrating!!!!
