Got 1000km on the z900rs today, shitfing still bothers me so gonna have it serviced asap. Neutral to first is the normal clack, but shifting up still is way too hard for my liking. First to second is harder and more clacky than neutral to first. Tried different techniques, always same. Second to third and third to fourth etc sometimes goes a little better, especially when I put some pressure on the shifter before shifting. But even then it sometimes clacks. 5th to 6th is always pretty loud, but that is normal from what Ive read.
Anyway, really hope this is due to the run-in oil and will improve. Could this happen when the clutch isn’t engaged well enough? I always pull my clutch all the way to the handle, but maybe the movement itself is nit enough so a cable needs to be tightened? Got no experience at all with this. I checked the clutch free movement and it is about 3mm as required in the manual.
It is such a great bike, too bad the shifting feels so bad on mine. It is constant clack clunk clack when shifting up. Downshifting also makes a noice but it is less loud.
