Brutale 750 - finding neutral problem

Hi there,

I seem to be having problems finding "neutral" when I have come to a stand still.
If I am in 1st gear and try and lift the gear lever up slightly, I just cannot get it into neutral - but if I lift the gear lever all the way up so that it goes into 2nd gear and then tap it down slightly, most times it slots straight into neutral.
Can you tell me why this is happening and is their a solution to get into neutral straight from 1st gear.
Look forward to your info.

All my MV`s are the same mate, try tapping down or up into neutral whilst still moving and it`s much easier. Why this is the case I don't know but it`s not peculiar to the brand

Thumbs up ?

brutale jockey;

Give the clutch a good bleed....

Remove the slave and with the return port at the top, push the piston back in with a

small C clamp.....now any air is in the M/C

Turn the bars to the right and lean the bike to the right, so the M/C is pointed downhill

pump it slowly once, pump it rapidly a few times, then slowly again .....repeat until you

don't feel the bubbles exiting the M/C......

Remount the slave and pump the lever until you can feel the clutch move

Hi, when was your last oil change? Mine improved significantly after this. Knurls suggestions are excellent. But I tend to agree that it is a matter of getting the knack of it. If I am in first and aporoaching a stoplight ot sign, I find neutral on the roll. It is alot easier. And after 6 years of ownership I have got it down pat. However when cold and at a stanstill, I do the up to second down to first dance a fee times.

It is also a function of a properly adjusted (for you) shift lever. Differing boots/shoes can affect how the mechanism is loaded and performs.

Hi there,

thanks for all your input, at least I now know its not all down to me !
I had the brake & clutch fluid changed over the winter time, so that should be ok
I will try what theknurl advised, to see if that improves it.
As you said the best way to find neutral is while the bike is still moving, but i'm not always able to do this.

Anyway thank you again, its a sunny evening here in the UK so i'm out for a ride !

Don't forget the step where you put an uncooked chicken in a bag

make sure the head is cut off

close the bag with just your hand in a twisted motion

use a white twist tie to keep it closed (a black twist tie won't work)

swing the bag with the chicken in it over your head 3 times

scream "BAKAWK" with each swing of the bag

repeat if it doesn't fix the issue.

You're welcome.
