I have removed some material as described to correct this problem from the kick starter gear but still dont have the smooth shifting I am looking for.
My Question is: can I ever expect to get the smooth easy shifting commonplace on my drz,xt and klx? or is the DR 350 an inerrant difficult and hard shifter compared to these other 3.
My "98SE was a little hard to shift and find neutral. I did the spacer thing ( http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...ostcount=11211
) and it's better. Not as smooth as the old XRs were but I don't think about it any more. If you check back through all the previous posts
, some others have reported that new clutch plates solved the problem.
