Greetings! + Gear shift question
I enjoy my road bike (Honda CBF600) but jumped at the chance to acquire a stolen recovered (i.e. somewhat knackered) '95 KLE500.
Despite a rusty frame and swing arm, damaged fairings and a missing bash plate, it has cleaned up reasonably well and I have got the engine running well (after rewiring a lot of badly hacked wiring!)
The problem I have, which may not be a problem) is that I cannot seem to get the bike into 2nd+ gear. Somewhat panicked I checked on the web and I hear this may be intentional. So can anyone enlighten me on how to get this up a cog!
Basically I would like to know, as it will help me decide on whether or not I keep the engine as I do need to replace the starter clutch components (slips badly) and its a toss up between the rebuild kit or a scrap engine with warranty.
Thanks in advance for any help!
