    Sometimes when I shift to second gear it doesn't complete the shift and misses the gear ,any ideas on adjustment?

    If you are talking about from first to second you are not completing the shift, you are hitting neutral. shift up a little more forcefully.

    As Steve said you are most likely going into neutral as during that gear change you go out of first then into second and has perhaps a longer throw than other gear changes and needs a deliberate change rather than a flick of the toe
    On my bike there is usually a clunk when second is fully selected

    OLD SCHOOL:

    Hold you shift into second Tightly UP if using your toe or DOWN using the Heal until it is IN the gear and running down the road... :s

    Sometimes I DO feel the gear Drawing into that gear Tighter and completing it into the next gear it stays...

    I do this on ALL my shifts UP or Down... Get into that Habit...:D It Works.....
