cant get gear shift shaft out far enough to see circlip groove
Hey guys, 1992 vulcan, got the engine pulled out for stator replacement. Gear shift shaft is loose. I can move it in and out of the engine about an inch or so, but I can not pull it out far enough to see the groove for the inner circlip. Both of the circlips are touching eachother at the outer circlip groove right now. I have both covers off and the linkage and pawl move and are in good shape. Any ideas on how to pull the shaft out far enough to get the inner circlip back in the groove without farther breaking down the engine?
Thanks for any info
