Shifting from first to second gear..your input?
haven't been active much and thats because money got real tight and I actually thought about selling the bike. I might actually keep it now seeing as I might have a job opportunity brewing up soon.
Anyway, I want to perfect the first to second gear shift. I've had the bike since late June and have got 4,500 miles on it so I feel pretty comfortable on it. Now, here's the thing:
Everytime when I shift from first to second its not smooth at all! There's like a nice "pop" or "bang" noise as I shift up into second. Sometimes it doesn't do it and thats because I'll rev up the engine a little right before shifting. I'm sure there's got to be a different way to do it though.
I don't want to have the tranny prematurely fail on me or whatever so what do you guys do to smoothly shift from first to second? Bike is stock apart from having a gutted air intake.
Thanks guys, looking forward to the answers!:icon_lol:
