It seems to me on my last couple rides I’m shifting a lot earlier than I was usually... anyone know of any particular reason like my Rpm’s are climbing way to fast

Re: Shifting

when they climb fast does the bike accelerate with it? the clutch could be slipping. especially if you do not have the cable properly adjusted or been using car oils with additives that arent compatible with your clutch.

Re: Shifting

This would explain the problems with the quick shifter as well.
