Red face Sticky Shift Pedal Problem to Change Gears

Hi forum. I have V Star 1100 Classic 2004.

Yesterday after a 3 perfect hour ride with my wife My Shift pedal got "sticky" or something like that.

For example. I push to go to first gear and then the pedal will not go to the normal position so I could push it again to go to second gear, I would have to actually push it up with the top of my toes so the pedal would go to an acceptable position for the bike to allow me to push it again to go into second gear... all that happen with all the gear... 1,2,3,4,5.

Today I was trying to look closely at the problem and I disassemble the first clutch cover (the one with 4 bolts only) and everything seems to be working there...

Any experience with this? Advice? How messed up this could be?

Fulltilt1 Thank you very much for that link. It seems to have many, many topics to help in different things.

Do you happen to know if I need to drain the bike oil before removing the left engine cover?

I would say yes and have a pan underneath.

Here's the full page I got that from. Lots and lots of V-Star 1100 info.
