FZ8 (2012) hard gear shift.

Experiencing hard gear shift from neutral to 1st and 2nd gear. Have adjusted the clutch, but it seems to be inside the clutch/ gearbox. Anyone that have had this issue with the FZ8? The issue is progressing. Use Yamalube 10W-50.

Most likely the clutch is not releasing all the way, but sounds like you got that covered...
Could also be the syncros are worn on those gears.

Does the clutch feel normal? Does it have a hydraulic clutch? Is it full of fluid? Might need to fill and bleed.
