Second gear hesitation

2082 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  GoodDl
I have a 2012
DL1000 with about 60,000 miles
On it.
It runs great. Good gas mileage . Good
Power , no complaints.
When I shift to second gear and slowly accelerate it feels
Like I am in too tall a gear . Ina few seconds as speed
Increases it goes away.
(I have stock sprockets and chain)
Does not do this in any other gear to the extent of second gear.

at what RPM are you shifting?
The gear ratio jump from 1 to 2 is the biggest, and IMO gear 2 is slightly too tall. See if shifting later in 1st helps.
