After yesterday's ride in the Dunes, I figured out that my son's Z400 isn't shifting properly. Going from 1st to 2nd, it usually just finds Neutral instead. You have to play with it to get it to finally shift into 2nd. 2nd thru 5th (& reverse) all work fine. We rode it all day at the dunes only using 2nd thru 5th and everyting was great.
Can any of you Mechanic Gurus offer a novice like me a clue on what to look for?
I'm thinking maybe a bent shift fork or something like that. Looks like it is time to split the case...
I've had some problems with real notchy, hard shifting when it's running hot. I have an 06, I sent it in for the clutch cover recall. I had it checked prior, and they said it looked fine. They didn't fill the coolant all the way up when they changed the cover, so I pulled the plug to fill the overflow resivoir to the full mark. I found corroded aluminum all over the ribs on the plug.
