690 enduro r shifting problems

Recommended Posts

Does anybody find that their bike gets stuck between 4th and 5th and then in between 5th and 6th gear. Like its in neutral. My enduro only has 650 miles on it i don't no if its me not shifting it hard enough or the bikes screwed up

I have noticed that if I get real sloppy on a no-clutch upshift, the bike will find a false neutral in the upper gears. As long as I put enough lift on the lever prior to cutting the throttle, no problems.

Hope this helps.

Ya thanks i am new to bikes. This beast is not as users friendly as my Honda crf 250l that i sold after 6 months to get it.

I get exactly the same issue with my SMC-R, with under 1500km's. I agree that it seems to happen more frequently if I am not assertive with my shifting. This false neutral feature really is the most annoying thing about the bike.

I will be playing with the positioning of the shifter and maybe drop it down a notch, may even go for a shorter or longer shifter, but first I need new boots.....
