Exactly. That's what I've experienced too.slowflyn said:Preload the shifter a bit and just some light pressure on the clutch. Higher the rpms the smoother she shifts.
Check your oil. If it's low, the clutch acts weird.steve1200S said:Does anyone elses bike shift worse when the engine gets really hot? The box sticks sometimes between 1st and 2nd if I rev it hard too (to about 5/6k revs)
Upshifts are better with very little clutch for me.
Downshifts are full clutch, change, then slip it back in, no blipping the throttle. 2nd to 1st is always loud and crap (especially when the bikes nice and hot).
It actually had an oil change only 2 days ago with it's 36k service. I've not noticed if its any better so far, but will keep an eye on it.robday said:Check your oil. If it's low, the clutch acts weird.
I had what you describe a couple of times, but not since my last oil change when the dealership changed me to full synthetic.
I have no idea if that was a cure, only that it hasn't happened again yet.
Yeah, my old K75S was way better, and so was the fuel injection mapping. How is it that BMW is getting worse at this as they go along?kbmwrs said:I know many others know it but other makes shift so much better.
My son just bought a '99 Honda CBR 600...14 years old and it shifts like butter.While my $23k (new) GT shifts like an old used U-haul truck. :boom: opcorn:
