I count myself lucky. My X shifted smoothly from day one and has never been a problem. However, after reading posts of the problems others have had, I'm getting a bit uneasy. Am I living on borrowed time? Hope everything doesn't break at once.
check your clutch lifter arm adjustment,which is under the 5 speed cover held on with two hex head screws. you have a jam nut,which will have to be lossened first then back of the slotted screw cause its probably tight, then bring it back clockwise until it just touches, then back it off agin just a little then tighten the jam nut..replace cover with blue locktitie on the threads, i did mine with the bike running and adjusted it until the problem was gone...good luck
