okay i've searched high and low online and through my manual on how to adjust my shifter pawl. i know what needs to be done and how to do it but my problem is i cant find this jam nut and allen head bolt and its driving me insane. everything ive found shows where the jam nut and allen head are but on my bike its just an allen head screw with no jam nut and in the manual it says "Screw (not an adjuster)" am i missing something here??? i want to tear what hair i have left out trying to figure this out!
Like was said , there's no adjustment screw . The shift drum isn't adjustable either . Make sure the 4 hold down bolts are tight too . There might be a bent shift fork but that would be evident looking at them with the cover off .
Your service manual shows the relationship between the gears and shift forks and where they should locate in each gear .

I just read in American Iron that the adjustable centering pin can be installed in the later trans. I'm pretty sure the gear set has to come out and the shifter ratchet removed, but realistically it can be done in an afternoon. The biggest deal is pulling the inner primary bearing off the input main shaft. You can do this by CAREFULLY cutting down lengthwise on the inner bearing with a cut off wheel and then cracking it with a chisel, it falls right off. Make sure not to cut the shaft. A new one is cheap and can be tapped on, no special tools. The trans doesn't have to be removced from the bike.
