Anyone out there having tranny problems ? Jumping out of gear, missed shifts, etc ?

None! Smooth as silk!! I have missed a shift or two but I think that has more to do with the size 15 boots and technique than the bike. I have never owned a bike that I have not missed a few shifts on. :crazy:

My '06 YZ450f shifts great, even under throttle w/o using the clutch. No missed shifts or vague feel at all. :crazy:

Mine shifts quite nicely. I do find it a bit more difficult to find neutral than on my ex-CRF though. Small price to pay for not requiring a $500 valve job.
