Ma Kaw has a Positive Neutral Finder (PNF) on many (or all?) models of her motorcycles that only allows shifting between Neutral and 1st gear while stopped.
Until the bike is rolling at a few mph and the tranny counteshaft is rotating, you cannot shift into 2nd or higher gears.
(The PNF is comprised of 3 small steel ball bearings that sit in receptacles on the tranny counter-shaft under the 4th gear.
The balls are thrown out of the stopped position by centrifugal force, thereby unlocking the PNF, allowing an upshift.)
Are you saying you cannot even shift into 1st gear?
If the tranny is stuck in neutral, I assume you can roll the bike without resistance. Correct??
