Gear Shifter Sticks From 3rd up to 4th - New Bike
I just purchased my New 2018 Adventure Sports. The bike is great except when accelerating quickly, sometimes I have a problem shifting from 3rd to 4th. I had a similar issue with my CBR250R going from 2nd to 3rd. The way it feels is I pull up the gear shifter and it does not click/ clunk into the next gear, I have to let out the clutch while remaining in the same gear which is jerky, then I try again and it clicks right into place like it should. Whenever I have this issue, it always shifts up to 4th on the second try. I have never tried double tapping it while the clutch is still pulled in, but this might work as well.
I know oil has an affect on how your shift works, but this bike had 0 miles when I bought it and I've only put about 50 miles on it when this issue started to occur. Is this a symptom of the oil the dealer used for the break-in period, or maybe the oil contamination from the first 50 miles? Anyone else have any idea or had this issue too? Thanks.
