My 600 vlx shadow won't shift up to second while moving or sitting still. I recently put on forward controls so i did mess with the shifter peg. The peg isn't hitting anything and since then I've put the controls back to stock and have the same problem. I'm stuck and it sucks only going 15 mph.

While you were changing the controls forward did you sit on the bike without it running and try and put it in and out of gears????? Just to see how it felt??????

I have not checked the fluid levels. And i don't think i checked the gears when i first installed the forward controls. I think i fixed it though. Just re-did the forward controls. Seems to work fine now. Thank you for your help

Cool, As long as you fixed it that's all that matters...

Awe, c'mon show us what you did.
Pics of before and after the fix.
That's what makes these forums so valuable. We glom onto others XP.
I'm betting it was all in the linkage geometry.
