3rd gear wont work, not pawl adj

Thanks to everyone who tried to help me with my tranny with my 3rd gear issue. I tried to adjust the shifter pawl but it did nothing. At this point I am pulling my hair out and wondering why I built my bike instead of buying one, its just hard to swallow. anyone have anyone have any last ditch ideas before I scrap it. Thanks

Sounds to me like your "rebuilder" needs some more schooling.

Get a manual and go thru it, any luck and you'll get it. Get it?

Got to agree with Ricky. Sounds like your rebuilder screwed up like putting the wrong gear on the wrong shaft.

When you did the pawl adjustment, did it center up? Could you manually (while doing the adjustment) get into gear? May be worth pulling the shift cover and observing the shift. A fork not set in the right place, shift drum bushing pushed out or any number of assembly/shim issues can cause shift problems. Is this a static shift problem or under power/rolling? These trans don't shift until the shift dogs line up, requiring either movement of the input and/or output shaft to get the dogs aligned so things can drop into place.
