intermittent clunking/grinding when shifting back to 1st
Sometimes when I switch back to first there is a clunking and sometimes a grind, I first thought it may be a misadjusted clutch, but with the clutch all the way in there isn't even a hint of friction, in fact going up all the way to 5 is fine, and going down until you get to 1 is fine too, sometimes it shifts to 1 easily, but there is usually at least a clunk. Any suggestions? I was going to take it in tomorrow for an oil change and spline lube, maybe I should ask them to look at it? It's a local cycle mechanic that has been in town for many years and comes highly reccomended, so I'm not too worried about being ****ed around.
