Duke 11 hard to get into gear

Recommended Posts

Hi all at Thumpertalk. I recently got back into biking after a 25 year layoff and bought a 2006 Duke 11 off of ebay, would you believe.

Its a lovely machine and I really enjoy riding it, it sticks to the road like glue and I am getting quicker into the corners all the time.

The only quirk is that when its hot and I stop and put it into neutral, it can be very difficult to get back into 1st gear, sometimes needing to be rocked back and forward a bit before it will snick in.

I just wondered if this is a common problem as its fine while moving.

Can anyone shed some light on this for me? Oh! and I had the Ktm dealer give it the once over before I noticed this problem and change the oil etc and they said its a good honest bike.

Hi there, is there anyone who can help me with this problem? after all it's only an LC4 and somebody should at least be able to tell me if its normal or not.

Thanks in advance.

Dave
