So I noticed my downshifts were a little tight (I have Sato Reverse shift pattern so I downshift up and can easily tell).
Yesterday the bike seemed like it didnt want to downshift without multiple attempts, today I cannot downshift into anything below 4th without stopping and jerking up and down with my hand.
It feels like there is no "detent" or spring return on the downshift side of things.
I am guess it is, something dry, a broken spring or something, the bike has 9000 miles and has NOT been abused.
This is my daily driver and I need to fix right away, I have looked at the shift star and suspect maybe my spring is broken or shot or loose, or perhaps the roller bearing is shot (if stock has one)
FYI the bike upshifts fine but has generally felt "clunky" on most shifts.
any ideas? HELP!!!!!
