Re: Loud going into first gear
Oil thickens when getting old = Sticky plates.
Plates break lose you ever so slightly pull the lever in... go try.
Warp steel plate acts the wave washer, buckles out and takes up the released gap = Hard finding N- Lurches forward- Grinds gears it won't go in.
But a clunk- no gear grind- no heading for some rear bumper with clutch in- no sore ankle finding N = Normal "handcuffed" action.
Electrically handcuffed to the electrics = Either one is at FULL power or Limped.
Mechanically cuffed to the design = Is why synchromesh transmission rings don't wait for the one shaft to stop spinning in 1st, lets apply it to all gears, add weight and mass to the engine case or stick with a formula 1 transmission basically.
It's the roar of the gearbox. I can sell the bike and stay off them, or I can take a man pill and live with design.
NOLTT (nice overly loud tranny talk)
