Well i just went for my first rip of the season today on my new bike, sweetness. A few questions for you honda CBR600 owners, how cranky is your transmition? Im finding i have to realy give it a good pull on the lever or it wont pop into gear, not too hard, but hard enough to bug me a bit, is this just a common honda thing? It could be because i havent changed the oil since the end of last season, im waiting for the local dealer to get in oil filters, could this be why the tranny is being cranky? Also the bike seems to be running a little rough, it idles at about 1000-1100 rpm, and during sustained speeds(usually sounds worse in the lower revs, under 5 grand.) it sounds like its running a little rough, is this just from old gas left from last season, or am i gunna need a tuneup? Anyways, thanks for your patience, your help is apreciated.
