My LTs were not as smooth shifting as many Japanese bikes, but BMWs are not known for butter smooth shifting. I had little clunking when upshifting though, mostly when down shifting.
By the way, there are NO synchros in it, and I really don't know of any motorcycle transmissions that do have them. All motorcycle trannies I know of are "dog" engagements, where tangs (dogs) on one part engage slots in the opposing part when slid along the shaft supporting them. Synchronizers take up room not normally available in motorcycle transmissions.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.

No bike now, but maybe in the future.
