Clean shift?

Not sure how to explain this but I'll giver a go. So just lately when changing gears some times the bike doesn't shift smoothly. It usually slides right into gear. Now sometimes there is a bit of a click feeling. Like its not shifting fully or something. Maybe a little bit of resistance feeling Just a little... Has anyone had this or even understand what I'm saying. Hahaha. It's a 08 running full synthetic Amsoil. Maybe I'm just being a hypochondriac lol

From N-1 or 1-2+?

1-2 sometime 2-3 and so on. It's just a slight click feeling. Feels like its going smooth and then the last bit there is a click just before it goes into gear.

Maybe a clutch adjustment? Is that even possible? I'm mechanically retarded

You can try to adjust the clutch, but as long as you are getting a full pull on the lever, it really is just adjusting for feel anyway.

What revs have you been shifting at anyway?

Not sure. I have been riding like an old man lately. I'll try shifting at higher rpms on the way home from work tonight.

Usually there's great resistance and clicks when I shift below ~4k rpm, but very smooth when beyond 5k, even if I up-shift without clutch.

So I think I figured it out. Here is where I sound like a moron. I turned that little circle thing at the end of the clutch cable and tightened it up. It was very lose almost spinning freely and seems to be a lot better. Yay me!!!
