    Finding neutral

    Just had the bike serviced at a main dealership. Riding home finding neutral very difficult at times had to leave it in first when stopped at times.
    Never a problem in the past.
    Clutch play appears the same. However looking through the sight glass it appears to have been over filled. Could this be the reason?

    I seem to remember some folks having issues with overfilling.  Not sure if finding neutral was one of them, but I think it is possible.

    In my experience, neutral is easier to find coming down from second rather than coming up from first.

    Easy enough to verify, drain some out and fill it to the proper level, where it should be.

    Just for reference. Now filled to correct level shifting and finding neutral both perfect again.
    Main dealer who overfilled it wasn’t convinced this was a problem until they rode it before and after it was corrected. 🙁

    I have absolutely zero idea how the oil level and finding neutral are related, but it DOES matter. Had my oil overfilled, so asked the guys in the shop to get in there with their vacuum-operated monster urinary catheter.  :034: The oil level is now at half way between min and may, and finding neutral has become a breeze. Thanks guys!

    I had the same problem, the last oil change I used a blend oil, Spectrol 10w 40 Gold.  I went dumped that and went to 10w 40 synthetic.  The problem went away.
