Shifting hard

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I am starting to notice that it is getting hard to shift gears. It's not as easy as it once was. Not sure where to start looking to find a solution. Any ideas? :cry: THANKS!

My bike shifted much better after I changed to synthetic oil.

My buddies bike shifted much better after he tightened the nut on the shift lever. :cry:

Hey guys, thanks for the ideas. I just changed my oil at 2000 miles. I used Silkolene comp 4 sx 10w40 as per the Suzuki dealer's recommendation. Not sure what the best oil is? It was changed one time before at the first tuneup at about 1000 miles. Not sure what oil was used then.

The clutch is tight, the shifter seems tight.

Also noticed my odo is way off. I am running outta gas at like 30 miles. It is definitely not reading the right amount of miles. A segment of street that my truck reads as 18 miles my KLX says 6 miles. I haven't unplugged anything that has to do with the speedo. I am not sure what's going on here. Everything else is running tip top.

:cry:
