Motorcycle Repair/L84' sportster xlx 1000


i put it in gear but it doesnt go, whats wrong?

right now it could be the clutch is not disengaging, bent shifter fork, broken mainshaft, drive gear on the sprocket stripped ECT. What you have to do is remove the primary cover and do an inspection on the clutch. If its all ok then you are going to have to remove the transmission and start checking it for damage.
Good luck and happy riding
