Got Clunk? Get Fixed!

This probably applies to the K1200R/S as well.

When I was in for my 6K service, my mechanic noticed that my shift linkage didn't quite line up in a nice parallelagram (his words). When he test rode it, he said it was shifting like shit. A few turns of the adjustment nuts and a tweak here and there, and now it shifts like a dream. Notch, Notch, Notch on each subsequent shift. Not the Notch, clunk, notch clunk, I had become accustomed to.

Something to have checked next time you are at the dealer.

My 1st, 2nd, and 3rd gear is clunky. But 4th, 5th, and 6th are smooth as silk. I don't think any amount of adjusting is going to help the first three. Not that I care either...

So were mine. Now it's fixed.

I recognize the clunk, clunk, notch, notch, notch sequence. Good to know it can be easily fixed.
