I just rode my 2001 Sv650 and when I switch between gears the shifter does not return to its position, instead I have to lightly push it back to the middle. Can someone please tell me what can be causing this? Also it seems like it is in all gears. Sometimes when I speed up it reverts to the proper position. But usually not.

Never mind, posted too soon. The gear shifter peg came loose. I tightened the bolt and now its fine.

well, since your issue is resolved, i'm gonna jack this thread to not have to make a new one. if this bothers you, i'll stop, otherwise, everyone else: i am in need of wisdom.

ok, so i dropped my bike on the left side at speed on a trackday. i thought the shift shaft had bent, but turns out, it didn't. i am stuck in 3rd (i think) gear. when i try to shift, i get about 1/2 a shift and thats it.

would this be a shift fork issue? or actual gears being damaged?

thanks to everyone!
