I read somewhere that people also were having issues with that stupid little spring on the gear shuft spindle not being strong enough or something causing a bad shift or non shift
could be any of these things at this point but I would start with the easiest stuff
I say this becaue Im so paranoid the first that always comes to mind is the WORST and usually thats when steve comes in and shuts me up and says hey its this simple thing
fix it and ride and well he is always right
