Only under hard accelleration she likes to pop out of gear. Something wore out? Or am i not shifting it hard enough. I find if i keep my toe pulling up on the shifter it is better.

My '72 Tiger was doing the same thing... shift into second, hit the throttle, and it would pop into neutral.

During the rebuild, I found some of the dogs on the second gear and the layshaft were really worn. When second was engaged, and quite a bit of torque was applied to the shafts and gears, the rounded dogs on the gears and shaft would slip apart and disengage.

I got some better parts from British Only and it's as good as new now!

Hello, I'm new to the forum but came up with your reply on a google search. I have '72 Tiger as well. My last bike was a '67 BSA Royal Star. I'm very much a novice at motorcycle maintenance but I'm trying to learn. My Tiger is doing exactly what you said yours was. It slips right out of 2nd gear about half the time - especially when I hit the gas. I have a couple manuals but I wondered if you could direct me to a good guide for the work it sounds like I have ahead of me

I personally found this video by Plewsy, a nice English gentleman on this forum, very helpful when rebuilding my gearbox a couple years ago.


This video along with the exploded diagrams and photos in your manuals should see you through (with a little patience and determination) :)

Good luck.
