    Hey Guys, I've owned my M109r now for 7-8mths and its been a dream to ride with none of the gear troubles i had experienced on some of the bikes i test rode. However all of a sudden it now doesn't want to go into second from first some of the time (which is the predominant problem i have heard about with this machine) but also it wont go into 3rd from second on occasion, falling into what feels like neutral and this occurs up and down from almost all the gears on a semi regular basis including 5th to 4th to 3rd etc, u get the idea. sometimes it just needs a slight lift of the toe and other times it needs to be stomped on to go into gear. any ideas what is going on?

    OldM8 sounds like the selector gear is bent/ damaged. It’s going to cost you Big $$ to get it fixed but if you don’t do it know it’s going to cost you even more...!
