changing up a gear

you know, if i say i don't over rev my bike i'm not strictly telling the truth. i try not to overrev my bike but i can't change gear quick enough!

it is just ssoooooooo hard as i sit there foot pressing hard up, up and up and yet still the blinkin thing won't change gear.

i tend to blip the throttle to do it but as i open the throttle again i find i'm still in the same gear! it's alright at lower revs but at WOT it's nigh on impossible.

don't suppose anyone has a marvellous answer to this one?

regards

It's all in the timing Taffy

Apply too much pressure too soon when you blip and it won't change up (only a very slight amount of pressure too early on the gear lever will do this). Wait just a little longer on your throttle blip before applying pressure with your boot.

Practice......

Otherwise, it's time to check the gear selector thingy for burrs or change oil.

Cheers,
Simon

on my yam WR4 simon, i could keep the throttle pinned and still kick up. i have also found that if i roll the throttle on coming out of a corner-nowhere near full power-then again it won't go through!

i also wondered if anyone has a later gearbox and has found it better than their '02 etc.

the gear selector was modified but as i understand it only to stop the 'binding' we '02 riders had on the selector arm.

i would love to get that sorted...

cheers anyway simon.

That's coz it was a yam gearbox Taffy! Breeds apart.

The 03 was just the same as the 01 and 02 with the hardened update for 04. It's always worth having a look as it not always a full bind, just gradually becomes more difficult to change gears when it wears.

Personally, I think it's down to technique rather than mechanical problems, the Husaberg gearboxes are very sweet

Hi Taffy,
For Daytona I used an ignition kill triggered by the shift lever.
Said kill is adjustable in milliseconds. Just hold the throttle wide open and click up.

I have thought about this but how to make it reliable? On a street bike it's easier. In the forest you have mud, tree branches. stones etc. Locating the switch internal must be the best option but it will not be easy to do.

Re: changing up a gear

"Starlane" has a strain gage equipped shift lever. The system is pricey @ $500.00 plus US. I built a system from scrap leftover from an N2O equipped ZX12 project. Said system was exposed to horrible conditions (sand and mud) whilst in Daytona and performed flawlessly.

Hope this helps.

Kind Regards,
Dale

Just give it time don't push it i am sure the extra time for a smooth change is less than that of a non change type effort.
My last two bikes where yams and i could hold pressure on the gear leaver until it hit the limiter where apon it would just slide into the next gear just like an auto box, my berg box was a real disappointment to start with but i can put up with it.
Many thanks for the exhaust, with that one and the innards i got from scoot i now have a very inoffensive kick ass 550 road bike
Do you live any where near west raynham or is that along way away.
