03 YZ450F Shifting

does anyone have problems with the shifting on 03-05 yz-f's. Problems such as notchy feelings, hard to change gears? thanks everyone

I have an 04 and it seems the longer I go without changing the oil the worse the shifting gets. I usually change the oil every other ride but the few times I have let it go to three or four I can notice a big difference.

I'd agree with the above post.... Plus, the type of oil can make a big difference. Whatever the previous owner was using on my bike, created downshifting problems from 4th gear to 3rd gear. After I switched to Yamalube 20w-40, I had no more downshift problems.
