so my "05" has this downshifting problem:

slow to stop light and coast to stop light w/ gearbox in 3rd gear. Stop, downshift w/clutch in, tap or try to tap my shifter into 1st gear...clunk into 2nd...push harder...clunk into 1st.


riding along 5th gear at 55 try to tap gearbox into 4th..clunk...and the rest of the story for the other gears.

I have blipped the gas and that does help but only 30% to 40 % better.

It has been getting worse over the last 1000 miles of my 7000 mile bike.

I have checked my clutch res. looks good
I have pulled my sprocket side of the 2 pc pushrod and it looks ok

BTW my local dealer here in Portsmouth, VA did have 2 LC8 mech's and the next closest dealer is 2 hrs away. I wonder if the dealer will cover the parts costs if I install them myself.

I bet I should suck up the cost of parts while my bike is still under warranty. But I don't need to waste money of parts I don't need.

Do need a "updated" pushrod? as listed by Don?

Euphoria is state of mind
