clicking gearshift on my '06 crf450x

I was hoping to get some input on what this clicking of my gearshift might be, so as to not tear the thing apart if unnecessary to do so. Whether shifting up or down, it feels like a slight dragging with intervals of resistance only when shifting with my hand and the bike is off. I feel nothing when I'm riding. Tranny fluid level is on. I use 10w-40 for both engine and trans. Any input would be appreciated.

I  think you are over thinking it. If is ok when running and riding why worry.

The racheting mechanism on the shifter pawl will click when it changes position.


 Good enuff for me. I've had the bike only for about a year now and I haven't noticed it before. Thanks fellas.
