Never a problem untill today. It won't go into 1st or 2nd unless I go up to 5th gear and then down shift. I'f I just go to 3rd and then down shift sometimes it will go into 2nd then 1st sometimes not. Do you think it's just a adjustment or something major. This is A HONDA :(

What kind, R or C? The Rs have been known to get the linkage joints gummed up with road grime. Just clean them up and lube them and they work better than new. 8)

Mine is hanging in 4th and won't go to 5th. I'll tear it apart soon and clean and grease. Hopefully that's all it is.

Thaks to all

Thanks every one especially spike. It needed a good cleaning and also I noticed the shifter was bent alittle :roll: . It hasn't shifted this nice since I got it in 2002.
