Tranny trouble

I tried this in another forum, but not much action, so thought I'd try here. Any help/advice is much appreciated. I noticed this riding the other day; the bike won't go from 3rd to 4th gear under full power. It will if I back-off, or short shift. I'm not a mechanic, but it seems ominous.  Thanks in advance.

Your letting off the throttle before shifting right? Not just pinning it and shifting? Kinda what it sounds like your saying. You have to back off to a split second to upshift.

I do, and am using the clutch. Thanks for your reply. It's an '06 KTM 250XC btw
