Hi all, having a problem with my 2006 636 when it comes to down shifting...
I'm a new rider, only been out on the road for a week, passed my test 6 months ago but only just got all the gear together. Anyway, I have a 2006 C6F, with 6000 miles on the clock, totally standard, seems in excellent condition, and I'm inclined to believe that it hasn't had a particularly hard life (500 miles in the last 2 years)
I've been out riding over the weekend, and I've started to notice that when down shifting from 3/4, more often than not I can't find the next lower gear, the bike finds neutral fine, and shifts up from 1st to 6th with no problem, I can shift down from 6th to 4th no problem but after that it's just as if there are no more gears, feels similar to trying to change down from 1st.
I pulled into a quiet road and had a play with it, tried adjusting the clutch cable via the lever adjustment, fully in and fully out, but no effect. The bike will change down eventually, clutch fully in and out several times and it will change after a few good kicks, just seems to stick most of the time, several times been at a junction and not been able to get down to 1st in time for the lights changing. I am a new rider but I'm sure it's not just me being a newbie, at least I hope not.
Any help on how to remedy the problem would be much appreciated
If it's of any importance, the bike hasn't been ridden much for a few months before I got it.
