What's the deal guys!? It seems like every time I shift from 1st into 1.5th, the motor just spins freely! Anymore if I want to go anywhere I have to just skip 1.5th altogether and just shift from 1st to 2nd!

Did I crack the 1st to 1.5th synchro or something? If thats the case then I must have also busted the 2nd to 1.5th synchro as well cause it does this when I downshift too!

Should I switch to synthetic tranny oil? Should I switch to anti-seize (or is that only for the engine??)

Maybe I've got too much oil in there and 1.5th is just too slippery to catch! I bet that's it! I'm gonna go drain the tranny oil and hit the freeway to see if that cures the problem!

Check your original invoice and see if you even have the 1.5 gear option. If you didn't pre-order the bike and bought it off the showroom floor I really doubt you have it.

this is a common problem. the easy way to fix it (that the dealer doesnt want you to know about) is when in the 1.5th gear to pin the throttle wide open and then without using the clutch to slam it down into first.

its almost guaranteed that you wont have that problem again.

It sucks when 1.5 doesn't work because downshifting to 1.5 and givin' it hell is the easiest way to learn how to wheelie.

Suzuki weak 1.5 gear
