    It might be the not turning on the engine part. Some kind of safety thing won’t let you shift if your not moving. That’s a long shot. Otherwise. If stock cable works and new cable doesn’t then its got to be something simple that’s just being overlooked.
    How did your chemo go? All done with that and a clean bill of health i hope.
    It's not that life is so short, it's just that you're dead for so long.---unknown.

      So I did flip back to stock cable and same result so my theory was wrong... tomorrow i will run the engine and see if that helps. Will update.

      Any suggestions as to what may be the reason are welcomed

        Are you trying to shift with the engine running? If not, that may be your problem. The gears in our transmission are not cut for a smooth dry shift.

      I have found most multi disc clutch bikes don't like to be pushed in gear with the engine not running. Bikes like BMW,and Moto Guzzi that employ a single disc (automotive type) clutch don't have this problem.

        So good news the solution proposed here to start the engine was the right one after running the engine shifting to gear the clutch works great and I do like the way the new clutch cable from motion pro works on my road star everything is good and again thank you for your help. Great forum. Click image for larger version

          That’s elementary Watson. Very common on motorcycles.
