Bit fed up now, because after pumping loads of cash into the bike its suddenly playing up.

The problems started one day out of the blue.  Essential some gear changes feel notchy and sometimes you click up to select a gear and find your still in the lower gear when you release the clutch. Going down the gears is fine, it just changing up. Obviously its the changing up to find you didn't select the next gear which is scary/annoying/worrying. I have done and oil and filter change, rebuilt gear linkage and set the slack in the chain & lubed it and it still happens. It also does not happen all the time, some rides it wont even do it....other times it does it all the time. The clutch does not drag in gear and neutral is easy to find.

I am stumped  Cry

Think it is behind the clutch basket mate icon_thumright


THINK i may have solved mine. I took the linkage off the pedal was fairly stiff on its bush. I had had a new bush machined for it out of some phossybronze and it was done to a very precise fit. So seems after a bit of use and getting gunked up it got stiff. For now just cleaned it out with GT85 and lubed with some chain wax. Seems buttery smooth by hand now.....Well see how she rides on my 40 mile trip home tonight.

here you go, if the circlip has come off of the gear change shaft sprocket side the shaft can move towards the right, and the two pronged spring can fall off the end of the locating peg, and give the exact symptoms you describe or if its broken... But first id have all the linkage to bits to check. dontknow dontknow dontknow dontknow

Just an update, done 90 miles over the weekend and problem solved  icon_thumright     My gear lever is some cheap Chinese affair and the bushing was made of marshmellows and pie tins, so i had a friend of mine machine me up one out of phozzy bronze. This was such a precise fit that as soon as it got gummed up with road crap it had almost seized, hence making gear selection notchy at the best of times. Now its all lubed up again my gear changes are the best they have ever been, silky as you like, with fresh oil and fully rebuilt linkage/lever.
