I have an 02 DL1000 I find shifting from 1st into 2nd especially at higher RPM very hard, it Klunks in other words I'm scared I'm going to break somthing. Some people say its nothing to worry about I would like some opinion's.https://www.stromtrooper.com/forums/i...s/confused.gif

Ive got an 05 1K It shifts fine until it heats up, then shifting into second gets interesting above 4K rpm. all the other gears are perfect and i can shift down without an issue. is this about what yours is doing?
