Now that she' sold..I remember back if I recall(old archives) you had a transmission(shifting) problem?? Can you you enlighten us what became of it..or was it a figmatation of my imgination...
I am editing this 'cause I did further research and answered my own question by looking further into his problem..thus from the archives:
Tim.. Good one!!, but I already checked that... However... GOOD NEWS!!! I figured it out early this am and the problem is solved....!!!
It hit me at about 3am a bolt from above.. What if somehow.. someway... the already short throw (in the Verholen Q Shift Kit) got even shorter?? to the point where the transmission could NOT shift into a next higher gear because it could not determine one gog from the next ?? as they were virtually in the same spot... ?? remeber, the shift throw with a Verholen kit is only about 1/8" as apposed to 3/4" for a stock bike..
Of course.. this mid-REM theory made only quasi-since as I have NO idea how the linkage could simply jump out of adjustment...Would seem impossible, but as Data used to say..(or to paraphrase..) "When all avenues of logic have been exhausted, the improbable seems likely." ... worth a shot.
Got up early, removed the entire linkage system, added 1/4" to the throw, making it longer.. Went for a ride and the bitch shifts puuuurfectly...!! Crisis averted...worries downgraded to defcon 2... Mongo happy..
Good to keep those old archives around....
