    Hi

    I'm having a hard time shifting from 1-2 on my bike, the gear shifting is very stiff and grinding, sometimes i have to stomp on the lever. it is a Jupiter MX 2014 model, mileage at 7000 KM.
    what could be the problem?

    My friend drives the same model but his gearbox (Shift/Downshift) is butter smooth from the start (reading currently @ 4000 km). found out that it depends on the level of oil thickness, I change oil at every 1000km, the first few weeks are always better after a service. best way around this is to use a semi synthetic oil (Motul).
    Most LC owners I know have this shifting issue though.

    Bring your mc to yamaha 3s. I think just a little adjust. Its just a lack of openning during shifting.

    Unfortunately, I'm based in Maldives mate, Can you give me the specifics on what to tell the mechanic to troubleshoot regarding this issue? that would be very helpful.

    I haven't tried MOTUL myself, have you tried Autoparts Galore/Motorize? or you can do what I do (after every 700KM) just head to the YAMAHA Service Center and ask for Yamalube for LC135+Oil Filter and get it changed from a Garage or just from them, but don't tell them you are here to service your bike, that will include inspections and the price will go way up (their service is better in my experience) though it takes too much time.

    sir, this happened on my other bike, that jamming sort of in transition from 1 to 2 , every time I change oil it seems to disappear but no long. what I did is just simply re tune-up it & I found it's out of specification and after it it's gone. maybe that's one of other answers.

    Here's the n00b friendly explanation for 1/8 turns out.

    to explain further, think of it like an analog clock starting from 12:00/let's say the best setting for smooth shifting is between 12:11 to 12:15. Hope this explains.

    One more example:
    Just imagine that this is the top of the screw and your turning it clockwise (to the right).


    | original position

    / 1/8 turn

    _ 1/4 turn

    \ 3/8 turn

    | 1/2 turn

    It works!

    Thanks a lot man. I was going to change the whole clutch housing and everything, you saved me a lot from trouble. now the shifting is even better than my friend's SMX.
