I did a search on this issue didn't see it discussed. We have
encountered a pattern with four different 250 sx bike 2012-2013
bikes,all four of the riders complained about difficulty shifting from 2nd
to 3rd while under heavy acceleration. (could not be duplicated under
lesser acceleration attempts) (shift problem usually occurred while
pulling hard out of a corner) Eventually the riders couldn't shifting
from 2nd to 3rd until repairs were made, with a little research I
found some information on this issue but little on the cause or
Our local Colorado speed shop LSE (Leavitt Speed Equipment
http://lseracing.com/) developed a repair that has successfully fixed
this issue on all four bike. It included polishing the SHIFT DRUM and
replacing the wheel on the LOCATING LEVER with an actual bearing.
I guess my question is has anyone else encountered this problem is
this a prevalent problem or an isolated issue?
