Hey guys

my 1-2 up shift can be pretty hard sometimes. Seems more so when hot. Sometimes Ill up shift and it will go into neutral instead of 2nd. Oil isnt very old, and im running kawi oil. Any idea's?

Also after installing my exhaust the bike seems to be running a bit warmer. Not tuned yet, but would this be unusual?

I don't think it is any cause for concern. Mine would shift hard every once in awhile and also go into neutral from the 1-2 shift. But I think that was because I didn't upshift hard enough.

I just recently installed a high mount exhaust too on my ride.

It ran hot for the first few times out but settle back into normal

Look into the Evo shiftstar kit... there are a few threads in here about them and every rider that installed it has said their bikes shift like BUTTER!! If I really had the money right now I would get it. I have the same problem sometimes when I get into higher rpms in first then trying to shift into 2nd. I'm running mobil race4t 10w40 full synthetic so it's not from just running non-synthetic/synthetic.
