Clunky gear box
Hi after a while! Could I ask for your opinion?
In the last 500/600 miles or so the gear box has become more clunky, mainly when hot. I have changed the gear box oil( I found some metal in the magnet but I smeared onto a piece paper leaving only a greyish "tatoo"), but has not made any difference. Probably more noticeable upshifting than downshifting, and perhaps with a degree of difficulty from 4th to 5th gear and a bit less 3rd to 4, but does not fail to shift. Is this sort of normal or is is a possible sign of impending problem?
I am off for a 600mile trip next friday, hence my concern. Any opinion will be much appreciated. Regards, Andoni
