Thanks for all the input so far. I'm really not willing to tear into the tranny, clutch, or other components as the machine is under service contract.

As far as riding it in the city, it really is a pretty good urban warrior bike. Powerful enough, agile, fits me well. My only complaint aside fro the shifting issue is how often the cooling fan runs in slow traffic.

I'm committed to keeping the machine until March, when I'll re-evaluate, sell, trade, etc. Until then, I'll try to manage it.

Did the shifter have any "play" in it? Also the clutch oil jet could be blocked as someone else mentioned. Either one of those would take just a few minutes to check and remedy if one is the culprit.

My 2013 ADV 990r started playing up at 3000 miles I checked the clutch jet and it had not been drilled!
I have now put a Zen Overland 0.5mm jet in but I think the damage is done and think I have warped a clutch plate.
I will be changing complete clutch tomorrow
The bike is under warranty but Fowlers Bristol refused to accept there was a fault and kept the bike outside in the rain for over four weeks!
Beware they only want to sell bikes!
