xr70 question

Recommended Posts

I'm looking at an 03 xr70. Took it for a ride, 1st gear pulled ok, 2nd gear didnt really have much pull, and then 3rd started to pull again. Is this normal for a 70? I never ridden one but was surprised about the lack of torque in 2nd. Clutch isnt slipping, so what else could it be? Is this just the wat 70's are?

Thanks.

70's are geared WAY too tall. Do a search on this forum for the fixes!!

Yes, they are. But in stock form, does 2nd gear pull less than in 1st and 3rd? Is this normal?

First gear is way too low. Big jump to second gear. From first to second the clutch slips a bit, then grabs. You wind it out in second then grab third. Second and third are closer together than first and second. Just barely.
