Gear box issue?? hopefully not

So today I was doing my normal commute, and coming to a set of lights I down shifted and noticed the gear lever (shifter???) stayed way down.....
knowing somehting was up, I turned off bike, dismounted at lights and had a play.

to change gears it it was a very dramatic lift/push wiht the foot peg, and originally I could only use first and second.

riding homw, I worked out that if I shift up, then release clutch then push down on the lever, I was able to make use of other gears. but eachtime requiring I center the gear lever before I make another change.

this was also required for down shifting.

A quick search at home made me think it is the return spring??

or is it somehting worse??


PS. bought a arrow thunder exhaust for it recently and it looks horn and is probably too loud for it to be street legal...

Soooooo.

To rehash my old thread.

I got my return spring fixed a week or so later at TL's when they did MV's. Originally they had to order one from Italy, but that could of taken seven weeks... which was out of the question. So they got a local shop to make one.
Got it installed along with getting exhaust and service (wasnt exactly a cheap bill), but they also ended up having my bike for over a week (fun when its your only transport).

Anyway.
It only shifts properly, when hard revving. I dont know why this is. It used to be managerable, but now its becoming quite problematic. especially during commuting (which I do most days).
Under 5kish revs, I need to slot the lever back down to a "neutral" position with my foot. Not always, but more often than not.

So..

What do I do??
Would it be worth getting a proper one ordered? then having it reinstalled at my next service? (which I said I would do myself this time). Bending the spring more?

I cant remember who worked on it, i wasnt particually happy with my last dealings there. Scratched engine plate, scratched water pump, and a gear shifter that doesnt really work properly..

b3nje909,

When mine went I went to the wreckers and found one that was close. It worked but like yours not properly and was a pain in the arse. It kept me riding until the original spring arrived from Star Twin. Order an oem part from them and the problems solved.

Cheers

Or you could have asked in the "For Sale" section and I could have sold you one of the 3 or 4 I have. But yes, replace it.
