I am new to motorcycles and I just bought a 2010 Triumph Thruxton 900. I am having difficulty cycling through all the gears in neutral. I haven’t taken it to higher gears on the road yet but should I be able to shift through all the gears?


  • Not sure your question is clear - neutral is neutral... You go through it to get to another gear... But I don't see how you "cycle though all the gears" while in neutral. – Solar Mike May 26 '19 at 21:48
  • Should I be able to shift from 1-N-2-3-4-5-6 while holding the clutch? – Stephen May 26 '19 at 22:17

Generally speaking you should be able to shift into 1st and 2nd whilst stationary, above gear 2 the bike would need to be moving to get into a higher gear(my experience from riding many different bikes). Why did you buy a 900 if your new to bikes? Ride safe

  • You’re right probably not the smartest move. Definitely going to take it slow. – Stephen May 28 '19 at 15:12
  • Watch out for others on the road, take it easy and enjoy – DamoC May 31 '19 at 19:49
