Sticky tranny

Shifting from 1-2 2-3 the gear felling almost sticky and sometimes going in to second downshifting its the same. It causes a hard time getting into the gear. Any ideas or suggestions?

Is this a new development?

Mine is that way too. It has been that way since I bought it. I thought that it was that way because it was brand new but I now have just over 4000 miles on it and its still the same.

It's hard to say, could you be a little more specific? Mine feels "clicky" but that is a good thing, it's not a car transmission. Is it hard to get out of gear, or hard to put in? Have you tried double clutching? What are your rpm's at in the gear you are in before you shift? Like if your going 2-3 do you get it up to XXXX rpm's before shifting to 3rd.

I'm really liking the way mine is working, once I got the 5-6 weird move it a little to the right shift pattern. The transmission has very positive shifts and there is no mushy type feeling when going into gear, mine has been good.

Be smooth, it's not a hot rod.

Have you checked the trans oil? It might be time for a change. I changed mine out at 50k.
