Perks of owning a 2nd bike... Should pick up a Grom or an FZ on the low.

When in doubt... send it!

So, before and after the recall I was having 5th gear issues with my (race) bike (street bike has been fine). Shifting and then cutting out at certain RPM ranges. Hardly use 6th so wasn't really able to verify that as well.

Everyone kept telling me how it wasn't the transmission, had to be electronic. Changed everything out, finally installing the Kit ECU and harness. EXACT same problems. I finally got pissed off and decided to pull the transmission myself because Kawi kept arguing that it wasn't the transmission.

Well, that transmission is tore the f up! I'm fairly pissed seeing as though these issues were present before the recall, which means they didn't even LOOK at the rest of the transmission, just slapped in their recall kit and called it a day.

Here I've been riding around these problems for the better part of a year, everyone telling me it wasn't the transmission (symptoms were not typical "bad transmission" issues as it was rolling on the gas in mid-range RPMs, mostly mid corner. Which was mildly terrifying at those speeds I might add).
