2016 Monster 1200R w/~3500 miles.
This bike has exceptionally hard shifting going down from 2 to 1. Finding neutral while stopped at a light is impossible. Finding neutral while coasting towards a stoplight can be done, but not with ease.
While the bike is underway, it shifts smoothly & fluidly going from 1 through 6.
All shifting linkage works smoothly without any binding.
Bled the clutch at the perch, no change.
Bled the slave, no change.
Flushed the clutch fluid, and bled and bled, and bled. Still no change.
Adjusted the clutch lever further/closer to the grip, via the thumbscrew. Still nothing.
I understand that Ducatis are notorious for having difficulty finding neutral, but this is a whole other level of frustration.
Can anyone offer any insight or suggestions?
Will an aftermarket/Oberon slave help this issue?
