Can't shift into neutral while engine is running.

96 fc501. I have owned it for about six months. Previous owner (original owner) told me that it has always been like that. "That's just the way that Husabergs are." Is this common or can it be adjusted out of the clutch? Bike shifts fine and the clutch does not drag while idling in gear, stationary, with the clutch pulled in. It just won't get neutral. I tried the cable adjusters at both ends. Is there an internal adjustment on the clutch? Thanks. Berg newbie

You can check the clutch basket for wear, that is the standard answer. I have owned 3 bergs, 2 since brand new. They have all been very difficult to find nuetral in while running.

Is pressure plate flex not allowing the plates to separate far enough. Remember reading that in 97 the pressure plate was beefed up to help this matter. Never tried to put a 97 pressure plate in my 96 though as a new one was mucho dinero. Maybe Dale or someone would know for sure if the change can be easily made. Should be plenty of the later old series motors available for parts today. I helped mine a lot by retaining the Magura lever. You know the one that takes basketball player hands to reach? These pull the cable a long distance and help matters, but as stated by Berger his many bergs had this trait. The newer ones just have it to a lesser degree.

neutral

hey dirtandstreet, try putting into neutral while your still moving
even at very low speeds, this will help. It is due too some drag.
early ktm's were like that 2.

First two Berg's could never find neutral when stationary. '05 model you can. It was never a bad thing as you rarely hit neutral whilst riding.
I just got into the habit of finding neutral before coming to a complete stop.

My 02 KTM 520 did it. My 03 FE650 does it, as does my 04 300EXC.
I dont worry at all. Must be something to do with that hydraulic clutch.
I just click nuetral prior to stopping.
I tend to think it is more of a Magura thing.....?

Hi Taffy,
Yes, I read that prior to my reply. Please elaborate on percieved drum issue (now there's some big words) so I can cure my 650 and 300 of said fault. Just what do you call the Drum?. The inner or outer hub or the pressure plate? as us Aussies and you Brits seem to have different layman terms for same components.
Cheers,
AUSBERG
