Shifting Fixes??

Is it possible it's your shifting technique?  I've found that when I shifted the gpz under 3.5-4K, the shift would usually be notchy.  Above that, usually smooth.

Also, it seems to shift smoother if you load up the throttle first.  That is, accelerate a small amount then shift, as opposed to cruise, then realize you could probably be in a higher gear.

I find this characteristic with the new bike too, although not as noticeable as the gpz was.
