  • Having trouble shifting

    I went to my storage shhed to get the bike out today and I could not get the bike out of first and into neutral. I had to really force it out of first. After, it was smoothe like normal. It had probably been sitting for 3 days. Anything I should bbe woried about?

    mine did that once when it was fairly new, my fault I'm sure due to putting it in first without the clutch

      Possibly just the gears meshed nice and tight and your clutch was still grabbing. (I'm guessing you tried 1st to neutral with the clutch in?) Even if the motor was running there might have been enough clutch drag to make it hard to get out of it.

      Either way I wouldn't worry about it if it was fine after that.

        Nothing to be worried about.

        Try rocking the bike back and forth a little next time it does it. This usually fixes the problem.

          MY thoughts exactly, mine has done this from time to time also.

            Same here.. I'd also check out your oil level.. my bike has a lovely little oil leak.. this makes my shifting progressively hard as time goes on

              Where's your oil leaking from and why?

                    Re: Oil leaking from left side

                    I had the same problem and had to replaced the gasket. My mechanic was familiar was the TLS and deduced that it was taken apart by the previous own and replaced with a cheapy gasket(cuz it certainly wasn't stock) - hence the leak.

                    There was also oil running down the side from the airbox that made it look like it was dripping from the left side if that helps your diagnostic.

                      Left side cover or the clutch cover?
