I have a 2000 1500 Intruder and lately I have had big problems getting it into neutral. The bad part is that this is a big bike and hard for me to rock it back and forth to get it in N.

  • Welcome to the site. Can you state exactly what your question is here? May 14, 2017 at 21:12
  • What specifically is the problem getting into neutral? Does the lever go right past it, or is it physically hard to shift in the direction of neutral?

    Are you talking about when it is running or not? Maybe the clutch isn't disengaging completely. When was the last time the clutch was adjusted?

If the oil hasn't been done recently, I'd start with that. Most motorcycles share oil between the engine and transmission, and you'd be surprised what a difference fresh oil can make in regards to ease of shifting.
