Question Similar issue...

My 06 950 started having this similar issue a few months ago and I need to decide on whether to tackle this myself or to bring the bike into the shop for repair

The problem I'm having is only with upshifts to 3rd, 4th or 5th gear, when this happens the shifter just hits a dead stop and will not engage but with tapping down a gear and then back up it is then fine. It only happens on rare random occassions but when it does it's annoying and I want to fix the problem

I've been doing a bit of recon and reading thru the shop manual to see what is involved but just how difficult is it to get to the shift drum and rollers?

I'm fairly mechanically capable on things that I can see beforehand but with this being more internal I don't want to get in over my head and create a bigger headache

If it's easy enough I'm willing to do this myself, just would like to hear from others that have tackled it before and any tips would be appreciated
