  1. Thanks Phil to be honest it doesn't recover well when revs are low changing up But I'm really struggling coming down box I checked gearbox oil today level is ok and doesn't seem that old I'm going to jack it up at weekend and check clutch adjustment I think it's fine but just want to check it's clearing fully Need to go through ignition and give carb a overall to I think most of the problem is still me need to get used to the gearbox Thanks for the advice though 👍👍
  2. I suppose the real issue is most of us never grew up having to drive crash gearboxes And now with full synchro and semi auto gearboxes they do everything for us
  3. Well at least when you're taught that way it soon becomes second nature and hopefully it stops you pushing one down a bank or even worse dropping one on the road 🤔😭
  4. I've only had vehicle a few weeks not sure about selector fork material I've managed to download a workshop manual and just use whatever oil it requires To be on the safe side Cheers anton
  5. 9Not sure about oil viscosity level is ok If things don't get any easier will have to drain it and check specs and replace it Cheers anton

  8. I drive artics with synchro boxes So it could be just a steep learning curve Thanks guys for your input Will do a few more trips out take on board what you, ve said and see how it goes Cheers anton
  9. Quite possible might be changing at to higher speed Will try it again in week see how it goes Cheers anton
  10. Clutch adjustment seems fine pedal is a bit high but she's fine going up box Might be worth checking that clutch is clearing with wheels off ground Cheers anton
