I just got back my machine from the shop after a tune-up and after investigating my complaint of a stiff gear box and poor clutch feel, they found the spring seated above the clutch cover and below the clutch cable end attached to the metal thing which actuates the clutch was broken.. It was replaced under warranty and the bike shifts and the clutch works nicely.

Sprint ST (05->)

Hi guys, Same issue as above. Bought 05 ST a few weeks ago.I checked the oil level, it was too high so I have now adjusted it. Got rid of the excess with the help of a soap dispenser.
Anyway I road this morning and same issue, after 10 mins of ride changing from 1st to 2nd was a nightmare and the bike kept on going to the neutral. After I got to work again I could not get it to go from 2nd to 1st or neutral and I left the bike at 2nd gear.
I bought this bike privately and engine wise it sounds super smooth. I am going to change oil and filter anyway and also attempt to try and adjust the cable. Will do cable adjustment tonight and let you know.
Please anything else which could be causing it.
By the way this morning when I drained some of the oil, I was in a rush so will check again to see if the level is spot on.
I was really looking forward to this bike so slightly disappointed.
Just for the note I jumped straight from a YZF125 to Sprint 1050 :grin:
Did you even find the issue?

LOL, you're asking for the OP to respond to a question on a thread posted 16 years ago!
