Shifting problems

Any of you guys having shifting problems? It seems like I am having trouble up shifting to second gear way more than I should be. Also having problems down shifting to first. It wants to hang up in neutral sometimes. Never had this problem on my 400ex. Or any other manual ATV/motorcycle/dirt bike for that matter. Any suggestions?

Mine does the same thing, exactly like you describe. Once in neutral i just release the clutch and grab again, Falls right into first after that.

So with that being said..it could be that the Clutch is still grabbing just a bit. Maybe a cable adjustment is in order?

I pretty sure the clutch is adjusted perfect. Like I said, I've never had this problem before with any other atv or motor cycle. Just this one. I guess it's pretty common with the xx.

Mine seems to skip neutral alot when i'm trying to get it in neutral. Gary said his did the same thing, then he tightened his chain and it went away. I didn't think my chain was loose though.

Yep. I don't know if the two are related, but honestly all I changed was the oil and tightened the chain (see my wrenching thread)

Before I had to have the engine running to get it into neutral or it was very,very hard to find. Now for some reason it goes in like butta.

I'm not saying that was what fixed it, only that mine magically started worked better.
