I got my new-to-me '05 RR. I bought it with 418 miles on it. It now has 590 miles on it. 600 mile service soon to be done.
However, the bike suddenly has trouble shifting up from 2nd to 3rd, and from 3rd to 4th.
The shift lever is solid, like when you try to upshift into 7th gear on the freeway.
I brush/squeeze the clutch lever a teeny bit, and unload the throttle a tiny bit when I shift. Even when I squeeze the clutch all the way in, the shifter lever still feels solid.
I really have to dig my foot way under the shifter and really yank on it to get the lever to move.
Any ideas what's wrong? Should I bitch at them when I get the 600 mile service done?
