    • Inside the guts of it there's a centrifugal clutch which is used at takeoff, and another clutch, a multi plate clutch, that's operated off the gear shift mechanism. The multi plate's there so when you change gears at a rev above the centrifugal clutches lock up speed, the  gears don't graunch or be hard to slip in and out. The shift mechanism slips the clutch before the gear's start to move in or out of gear. That clutch operating is probably that "mushy" feel you detected (just an incidental bit of info). You should check the adjustment of that multi plate clutch. It's on the right behind the rear wheel, behind a bung. If it's not slipping enough they are hard to shift. The real secret to good changes though is in A: getting the torque load off the gears at the instant you move the lever, and B: synchronizing the speeds of the gears. The process when changing up is , give it a little extra throttle(more than you had been) just before the lever gets moved, so the bike is accelerating, then throttle off just as you move the lever. That way the bike and the engine are both under a sort of float condition, both are neither accelerating or decelerating.  The process when changing down is throttle off till the revs are low enough to change down, then blip the throttle just at the instant you are moving the lever down a gear. The throttling on takes the load off the gears you are in, and then brings the revs on the lower gear shaft up to the speed of the other shaft and gears. Depending how fast you are going at the time and the gears being shifted you sometimes need to give it quite a rev, but at low speeds just a little rev. 
    • Operator error! With the rearend raised. it shifted through all gears while rotating the wheels! Thanks Mech!  Now I just need to learn how to ride it! 🙂
    • Put it in two wheel drive, high ratio, and try rotating the rear wheels..  While you have it up.
