Clunky XT gearbox - advice anyone?

Recommended Posts

Hi

Just bought an XT and the gearbox is quite clunky and difficult to find neutral. I`m about to do an oil change which may help, but maybe the clutch springs need replacing? Any advice fellow XT riders?

Cheers.

Try differnet kinds and brands of oil. Sometimes a different kind of oil will make a difference. If you run "normal" oil try a synthetic, then try a heavy duty diesel oil next time , etc.

I would really doubt that clutch springs would do anything for finding neutral.

If this is a 600 Neutral is always hard to find, They tend to shift better with new oil. is it clunky shifting or while driving?

Thanks for the feedback. It`s an XT400E, Japanese smaller version of the 600E. Difficult to find neutral when stopped and difficult shifting when on the move. It has been standing for a while which led me to question the clutch/springs/plates.
