On my 1997, until just recently the shifting was perfectly normal. You know how when you shift up or down, you feel that satisfactory 'click' like you know its in gear? Well just last night, my rm stopped giving me that 'click' feel when i downshift. Now its just like im pressing on rubber, almost like when a key is stuck on the keyboard, even though it works, it just doesn't feel good. So i can't tell that i downshifted even though I know i did, and it does indeed change gears. It still shifts without any problems but I wonder what could be causing this? And occasionally when I hit the powerband it pops out of gear, but not very often.
