Had a great ride last night with friends and about at the 75 mile mark I start having trouble down shifting. Has anyone else encountered this. A friend suggested I check my rear motor mount bolt. Any other suggestions I should look into while I'm in there? I'm checking my clutch adjustment and chain tension. It seems like gears are not wanting to shift internally though. Any help is appreciated. I recently changed oil and had no issues on previous rides.

I haven't had any shifting issues on my Z but I did read on the forum that someone had the same problem and it was the engine mount bolt just back from left foot peg.
Once tightened up it was all good.

Yeah, my buddy encountered that so that's where I'm going first. Just want to see if there are other options to check while I'm in there.
Thanks for the reply,

Hey SqueakyHuevos,
I had just recently changed the oil and have only 1 previous ride on the new oil. Thanks for the help.
I discovered the issue with my down shifting. Up shifting was good, only having trouble with down shifting. Here is why:


A little Loctite goes a long way !!!


Thank you all for you suggestions and help !!
