Is this a clutch issue? I checked the plates and springs and such, and they all looked good.

Could it be a synchro problem inside the tranny?

Or, have I just got clutch outta whack or not adjusted right?

Could it be as simple as a shifter adjustment?

any help would be great.
There are a couple of possible issues with the DR350 shifter and clutch. Head on over to Maximum Suzuki and look around there and ask them. Lot's of good DR350 folks hang there.

There is a bolt that comes loose and causes problems shifting and clearence problems with the clutch makit it creep in first with the clutch pulled in or hard to find nuetral.
