    Just had my clutch replaced and am still having issues shifting up through the gears. Under regular driving conditions it won't shift, but if you shift at very low rpms it will.
    Downshifting is never a problem.
    It's very frustrating as the dealer had my bike for 4 months and there is still a problem.
    With the bike on its stand and not running it upshifts with ease, with the clutch engaging and disengaging with each gear.
    Any input would be great. Thanks

    Are you pre-loading the shifter? Also the clutch system may need to be bled.

    Thanks for the reply John. I don't pre-load the shifter and I will be bleeding the system tomorrow to make sure it was done properly.
    I have been riding for years and have never come across anything like this.

    Try pre-loading the shifter. It can make a big difference.

    Take you foot away each time you shift. My guess is you are not letting the shifter return to the middle position. It will not shift up unless you do that and just leaves a limp shift. Adjusting your shifter height fixes the problem. If it shifts fine on the center stand there is no reason it should not shift fine on the ground and running.
