They Do That ! ( dont ask how I know ) . Youve probably bent the layshaft , too .
Once people realised you waited untill the temperatures were up before standing on it .
BUt , if ' youve always ' bump started it in second gear ' , did you run / roll start it , in neutral AND shift into second .
Cold Oil / baulkey shift . Forced ! .
Had someone ride mine with ex plod boots ( WW1 DR in NZ ! ) My delicate sensitivities were jarred on every graunched shift ,
whicxh was most of them .
The things these Triumph Riders do as a matter of course ! You can clutchless shift a Triumph , forcefully .
A Knorton , it is a matter of timing and dexterity , learnt by driving crash box tractors , Straight Cut truck boxes etc .
A toe on the shift , and itll go in when it wants to - delicately . Any More Force is force & forces it .
I recomend you equip yourself with winklepickers .
And check the Mainshaft output bearing housing .
Dommie bits'll fit .
A new mainshaft in NZ was $ 80 in NZ about 81 , and they ( someone ) had one ' on the shelf ' . Wonder multiplication on price now .
Er , cool day And not using clutch , or even with the clutch , drag & cold oil may result in such uncalledfor consequences . As the large Boot forces gears out of kilter .
Check the Clutch Drum spins true on the bearing , too .
The Japanese response to ' styling ' , was to add more .
