My 08 KLR650 was working pretty well, but for the last few days I have been noticing whenever I shift from 1st to 2nd gear it feels a little rough (like it grinds) and all other shifts work like a charm. I have no problem when I shift from 1st to 2nd gear very carefully. I can't figure out what do I need to check, because all the gear related parts in perfect place/condition. Can anyone help me to get rid of this problem?

Thanks..

First of all, URL links are not allowed in signatures. Yours has been removed and this is your only warning.

As far as shifting, I'd check your clutch lever freeplay and lower lever engagement. (simple stuff first) Might just be out of adjustment??

Also, how's your oil level??? My KLR likes fresh oil and when it's a little low, it shifts a touch more roughly.

Let's just keep our fingers crossed that it's not a shifting fork or gear issue.
