Steve sound like the timing between the lever and the shifter is off. Set
them so there both 90Deg from each other.  I________I

Subject: Trasmission Experts?

Looking for some transmission advice. 2 race weekends ago I started having 
difficulty getting into 5th. I tried putting some extra preload onto the 
shifter, tried
not preloading at all and finally tired using the clutch. Nothing seemed to 
help and
I only managed to get into 5th just over half of the time. The next race 
weekend it
was even worse so rather than have a big mess I just went down a couple of 
on the rear sprocket and lugged it around. (good thing our track is so 

I guess I will have to rip the whole motor apart to get to the trani but 
what would be the
most likely problem? Should I be looking for trouble on the gears themselves

or at the
shift drum and forks? Or somewhere else??? Is there something I can check by

just going
in through the clutch side or do I really have to split the cases?
