i have the F3 entry model 3 cylinder roots with auto toggle trans
The 1330 engines are not known for using oil but the shifting problems with the auto transmission are
often caused by a low oil level. Have you checked the oil recently ? Using the proper method ??
The transmission shares it's oil with the engine.

check oil... double check half quart ...started engine toggle switch engages shift R to first...does not engage with engine
Explain all of those abbreviated sentences, please.
Just guessing at what you mean:
If it shows a half a quart low when cold, it might actually be a quart or more low if you check it right.

AND if you "just had it serviced", then it should go BACK to that shop to fix the problem and that probably will require a "tow".

Kinda sounds like it the left switch cluster on the handlebars. It’s a known problem and most likely requires replacement. If out of warranty it’ll be a bit expensive.
