2011 D675 Down Shift Issue
I had the bike out at VIR the last couple days and was having issues shifting from 4th to 3rd. I had the issue once or twice last week at NCbike but i had attributed it mostly to new boots and just me being rusty.
Going into heavy breaking zones i would try to go from 5th or 6th to 3rd and it would usually go into 4th fine, but I would try clutching and shifting multiple times before it would actually shift. It got to the point that I would roll wide through the corner wide in a high gear and then would have shift down once the bike seemed to settle down. Through the pit it would go up and down gears with no issue. No problem going up gears and no point did it pop out of gear.
I adjusted clutch cable a few times, adjusted shift linkage to make sure all my angles were as good as possible and no binding in the rearsets. changed the oil back to Motul from Amsoil just to see if it helped. It seemed to run better the first couple laps while the transmission was cool but came back on the third or so lap.
I'm thinking shift fork?
