Transmission Sticking

This was only happening when I shifted down it wouldn't 'pop' back up to center, i'd have to tap it to get it to release and pop up so I could shift again.

now it's happening when shifting up .... and not shifting down ... any suggestions ?

Plus I hear a jerk or something in the transmission ...... when i play with the throttle in 1st, 2nd gear ... with clutch engaged ... i dont know if it's just from the power or if something is loose in the tranny ..

-daniel

p.s. another reason i was thinking about getting rid of the bike .... i can't afford to fix a tranny right now :(

Sounds like it may just be a problem with the shfit shaft spring or with the shift pawl.
I wouldn't recommend continuig to ride i till you get it looked at though, it could cause you to bend a shift fork.

If it only does it when you're "shifting fast", it could just be that you have a "lazy foot" and are not fully engaging the next gear.
If you bring it up I can test drive it free of charge and let you know if there's a problem or not.

Not likely, but it could be your "external shift" linkage. Maybe the shifter is in need of some lube - very easy to check - move it up and down with your hand - bike stopped and engine not running - watch it move - watch the linkage and see if it is smooth and freely moving, or binding/sticking. Some light lube won't hurt it anyway. It's worth a look, and your favorite part - it's free except for a little lube. Next step - the test ride by Patrick @ Motorcycles Unlimited.
