Down shifting issue into 1st gear.
01 929, I am currently in the process of getting a new Speedometer so i have no Neutral Light. Proper oil level, proper clutch adjustment and even adjusted clutch to different settings to ensure it was not a clutch adjustment issue. Very hard "Clunk" going into 1st gear, and even when 2nd gear is engaged before accelerating seems like change is not very smooth. My major concern here is down shifting. Riding in 4th, light turns yellow, down shift to 3rd, but when i try to down shift into 2nd it seems as the shifter is going down but not engaging the gear. This is both with the clutch engaged or disengaged, it will not downshift into a lower gear. Obviously i have to stop for the light so now i'm in 3rd gear stopped at the light, still trying to get the bike to downshift and as i'm pressing the shifter down, its moving and the shaft is moving but its not changing or engaging the lower gears. Shutting the bike off and trying to rock back and forth doesn't work, so now i have to re-start the bike with the clutch engaged in 3rd gear. So as i pull away from the light, i can now shift down to second and even 1st sometimes. This issue occurs when the bike is cold/warm/hot. Walk outside, fire her up, pull in clutch, hard clunk into 1st and about 50-65% of the time, the shifter will still move as thou its not engaged into 1st( if that makes sense) even thou it is. Go back into neutral and then back into 1st and now the shifter is fully engaged into 1st and will not go down any further as it should normally be. Now i used 4th gear as the example but this problem occurs even in 6th exiting the freeway, i can down shift to 5th , maybe 4th....but seems live after that she just won't downshift and no matter what i try at this light, until i get the bike moving at about 5-10 mph she will not shift into a lower gear. Has anyone else experienced anything similar to this?
