OK, I'm having intermittent problems shifting from 2 --> 3. This is the only gear I have the problem in. It just hangs and doesn't budge at all. I have to get the RPM's way up to get it to shift. When it doesn't happen all is well and shifts great. It has happen 6 times in 1200 miles. Any idea what may be causing this? Is this normal during break in? Cables are good and oiled. Everything from the exterior looks good.

Or your shifter needs to be adjusted. Have you taken her in for the 600 mile service?

Yep she has had her service and I changed the oil again at 1000.

Had the same problem with my 02. The Problem was me - not the bike! I asked the same question as well.

Just shift at a higher rpm, since then NO PROBS!

My 02 behaved similarly when I first got it. The problem seemed to just go away though as it hasn't had any problems in a very long time... Since it is brand new and under warranty, I'd go ahead and take it to the dealer just to be on the safe side...

my 2000 did somethinglike that. It would get hung between gears every little bit. You would hear the gears grinding until it caught and meshed together. I used to blip the throttle slightly when shifting and it stopped doing it.
