    +1 for getting it to the dealers. Is the oil level okay? I once heard on the other site about something going wrong on the output shaft.
     
  4. I'd get it to the dealers but have a look at the the gear leaver and check that nothing is loose.

    my gear lever can be a bitch ,sometimes no problem ,other days plays up ,can be sure it will stick at 3RD & refuse to go dowm anymore , have to slip the clutch a bit then it clunks down , it has always been like it from new
    so just live with it ( no problem unless you stall it trying to slip the clutch at crossroads )

    going to see what triumph say when i take it for a anual service next week

    ok found out what could be the problem was talking to a guy that has raced a 675 for 3 year and he said that there is a shaft in the gearbox that twists and eventually makes you unable to change gear he seem to know alot about the bike so have no reason to doubt what he said .
