My thinking is this problem of not been able to select a gear and the transmission been locked solid has only occured since I removed the clutch cover. By bleeding the clutch I can eliminate that potentiol issue,

any advice comments greatly appreciated thanks Craig.

I don't think bleeding the clutch will help. You can simply unbolt the slave cylinder from the motor and then try to shift gears without the bike running. You more then likely did not put it back together correctly.

I doubt that the clutch actuation has anything to do with your problem. There is something interfering with the shifter. If not at the exterior shifter/linkage, then inside the engine. You should be able to see a small part of that mechanism behind/near the clutch basket when you remove the side cover.

Is this because I have incorrectly fitted the clutch engine casing incorrectly i wasn't aware
could see that there were any specific locating lugs. So at the moment I'm faced with the prospect of a seized transmission !

It worked before you removed and reinstalled the side case, so that is the place to look. Pull the cover again. I'll bet you'll find something out of whack.

Your bike is a VT700. What year, so we can look at a parts break down.

Edit; I was just looking at the Bikebandit parts diagram for the 1986 VT700. Conventional shifter mechanism, and as I said you should be able to see some of the shifter ratchet when the side cover is off. Look closely to that area.

I will remove and inspect the clutch side casing tomorrow morning i will also check the clymer manual to see if it states that there is a specific alignment.

So inspected inside and around the clutch basket and can see the inner workings of the gear selector rod however I can see no damage.I have bled the clutch and the system is free from air.

At this point I can only assume i will have to remove the engine and split the crank in order to inspect the inner working for damage etc
