sojourner Thanks for the responses/suggestions. You've given me good ideas of potential solutions.

Matt At his seminar at the MOA rally, Paul Glaves said that hard downshifting is an early symptom of dry clutch splines. He also said they should be lubed (using a moly paste/moly grease mixture) every 40-55K miles.

Just a thought.

astuber I had a similar problem when I installed the upgraded shift linkage. Cleaning/lubing the shift linkage and adjusting the length fixed my problem.

Hi,
Have you gone through your shift linkage to be sure the bolts are tight and the joints are lubed?
