Any problems shifting?

Recommended Posts

I have just recently bought an 06 Suz 450, and I am having problems shifting when the bike is under a load, it seems to be getting caught in between gears.Anyone knows a fix? or has had a similar problem?

I have this problem when in a high rpm load, just short shift and let the bottom pull.

mine shifts awesome, way better then last years Honda crf. it was a little stiff new, but very positive. I changed oil to Maxima full synthetic 5-50 ultra, and it shifts better than any bike I've ever had. Motor is quieter too.

I only have problems while finding the neutral position. But i remember - after the first oil service - the shifting was smoother.

Did U change the oil before?

Dont worry guys . it take time to break in the gear box. after a couple of oil changes it will get better. mine shifts like a dream now after 20 hrs.
