Apart from the Excessive primary drive backlash and awful clunk when changing gear,The Gearbox works fine while cruising.
Under hard acceleration it wont release the selector fork / shift drum for the next shift. At first I suspected a weak return spring but it does release the shift lever but still wont shift until I roll off the throttle or use the clutch.
Bike is booked for a service on Tuesday 19th, so I will wait and see what the Service Manager thinks about it.
