it will get better on the next change as well...... by aobut 4-6K mi itll be bout at its prime for shifting. Kawis do that a bit too.

But also, try shifting clutchless, itll shift smoother and make the clutch plates last longer anywyas... Just while riding, when reeady to shift up, pull the shifter up.... no clutch.. Hold the pressure then let off the gas and itll go right up into the next gear smoothly... DONT do the same thing going downwards... least in the lower may put ya on the ground.

Kawis do that too.

I guess for the best bikes you gotta take a flaw or two right? hahaha
