Re: new tranny wont shift

was it done by a shop or you?
If it was done by a shop, i'd just take it to them if at all possible.
my guess would be

84 Honda Sabre V65 1100: pipes, jet kit and new tires. Faster than I think I'll ever need.

Re: new tranny wont shift

I guess that could cause it but I would think you would have a flashing OD light and a code, but I could be wrong? Does it shift thru ALL the gears including OD or do you not have OD?

Re: new tranny wont shift

i had the same problem with mine after i installed the tranny and it was the syliniod pack.would shift manually but not on its own.i would check the plugs to make sure that a pin isnt bent or some how gotton pushed down and not making contact.it will be the plug on the right side of the tranny,take off the heat sheild and you can get to it a little easier.
