hard to shift


Recommended Posts

on my 04 it seems like after i put about 6-8 hours on my bike after i change the tranny oil it seems like my bike gets harder to shift, but once i change the oil it seems to shift fine. could this be from the oil just getting worn out? i use GN4 oil in the tranny

or could my clutch be starting to wear out?

thanks,

I don't think it's necessarily your transmission. Take a look at your outer basket and see if it's notched real bad. What ends up happening is that the outer basket notches and it it holds the clutches in place when they should be sliding apart and releasing the clutch all the way. This makes it hard to shift. The dead give away is trying to find neutral when the bike is running. There could possibly be a problem with the trans, but look at the obvious first before jumping to conclusions.
