On my '01 426 motor, the bike does not shift into gear right away, it always has to be rocked back and forth, or move the shifter all the way up or down, and then back up/down to the gear I was trying to shift into.

Are my forks bad, or is it something else? Shift drum? Actual gears? Don't have much experience with this motor.

It could be a shift fork thats bent/worn or you could have a dog thats torn up. Your going to have to split the cases to find out, but its not a bad job.

[COLOR="Blue"]Sounds like you might have a broken shift mechanism
that rotates the shift drum..Easy to check it's behind the clutch hub.... [/COLOR]

Is this with the engine shut off?
