This came up all at once and nothing first...
As I rode off to work this afternoon the shifter became sluggish to the point where I had to use several firm attempts to downshift, especially but not exclusively, into first gear.
Also, up-shifting was troublesome and a couple of times I couldn't get into fifth gear (luckily not during the highway portion on the trip).
Here's where it's really weird: When I couldn't get into 5th after several attempts I tried the heel shifter and it wouldn't move at all...as if it had bottomed out.
I can't see anything physically jamming the shifter.
it doesn't drop out of gear and it's not making any unusual noises either.
At this point, I'm pretty sure I can make my 30 mile mostly interstate nightime commute home, but I'd like to get an idea what the deal is.
All ears now.
I don't need a compass to know which way the wind shines.
Pray, Hope, and Don't Worry.
