Default 03' Big Bear hard to shift...

Does anyone have trouble shifting the 03 big bear? I just bought one and have about 15 miles on it so far. I love it, my only complaint is that it is hard to shift. What can be done about it?

I noticed the same thing on my '03. Let it warm up a bit to get the transmission oil going and it shifts smoother. also when you first take off, do it slowly and shift to 2nd slowly as well. this was really the only gear that was hard to get into- 1st to 2nd.

My 03 is the same way, once it warms up it gets better.

ya my 2003 was like that when I got it but I either got stronger calf muscles or its actually just gotten better lol the only time I have a little bit of a hard tiem but barely is reverse to neutral but thats rare when it happens and when it does I just stand up and move the b ear side to side hard while shifting up
