I picked up a used 04 450 this spring from the dealer, and I love the bike... It is my first dirt bike in about 20 years, my last one being a 84 XR 500. Now that I'm getting some time/miles on it, and getting more used to it ( meaning running it harder...), I'm finding it to be a real bi**h to shift up through the gears, into 3rd and 4th at higher rev's. If your just putting along, tight trails, ect...no issues....but straight stretch's of fire roads, beach, etc, and you want to flog it some, going from 2nd into 3rd has become a REAL problem...you shift, let out the clutch, and your still in 2nd...etc.... No funny noises, or popping out of gear, or anything..... Is the problem ME, (I still consider myself a newbie on it...), or the tranny?? Any idea's or tricks I'm missing?
