  6. Sticky Gearlever

    Africa Twin
    Hello lads. So today I found that my RD07 has a new trick up her sleeve. Cruising to a stop in first gear and then wanting to tap up into neutral is impossible. The gearlever feels well and truly welded into first gear. Cut the engine and she slides into N like butter. Am I missing something...
