    If that is the case, it will be an expensive repair as you have to disassemble the drive shaft (cardan shaft), rear bevel gearbox and gearbox and then see what happens inside the gearbox.

    Anyway, I'll upload a picture with the outside measurement of my shift pedal.

    That being said, it's because on a number of occasions, there were times with first gear I didn't have a problem, but yes, I had a problem going up a gear, it wouldn't let me go up a gear, I adjusted the rod and I didn't have a problem that way.

    Let me say that this measurement has been taken with the gearbox in the neutral position.

    It is possible to adjust the position of the Gear Change pedal "too far" upwards,
    in an attempt to provide more clearance for your Boots,
    and the pedal can then hit one of the engine cover bolts - preventing full travel of the pedal !  :138:

    This can only be seen after removing the Side Control Plate ( Footrest hanger plate ).

    The dealer wants about £600 to strip it and see what the issue is! That's the starting point. I shall try to get it to an independent shop this week and get them to try it. I read that the gearchange on these bikes was rough, and apart from the refusal to shift first time every time I didn't think it was too bad, but had nothing to compare it with. The tech said it was particularly rough and noisy so maybe I had set my expectations low.

    If the weather holds up I will take the bits off to check the measurement properly - what was once our garage is now our kitchen so I have to work outside  :003:
