I have a little grind downshifting to 2nd ** Common** from what i read anyway what Oil and weight are you guys/gals running? it has 2050 castro part synthetic right now thinking to switching to Amsoil....insert thoughts below
96-97 Classic models gave different gears than the other four speed model. The also are known for 1-2 shift problems that no oil will fix. I'm not even sure replacement gears are still available. Is you decide to open it up, a Vulcan A gear set will be way to go. All other internal parts are pretty much the same, just gears on shaft are different.
