    I bought my Griso a couple of months ago and I've got a little over 1100 miles on it and I'm curious about the transmission.

    When it's cold or just started up, the thing just snicks into gear without a sound from a stand still but as everything heats up, the clunking and clanking of up-shifting and down-shifting begins. Really H-D like in it's tractor like sounds. Now, I've never experienced a false neutral or a miss-shift.....just the noises.

    Should I be worried about this?

    Thanks!

    In my opinion, no. Mine clunks sometimes, you get used to how to shift it so it makes less noise but sometimes it is just going to clunk.

    1. Give it another 5-6K miles to loosen up a bit.
    2. Guzzi's always change smoothly at mid to higher revs, don't ride it like a vintage Harley. "BLIP" it on the down change.
    3. Change to Stelvio "silent block" at front end of torsion bar.
    4. I don't use the clutch changing either way, smooooth as!

    If improved shifting doesn't help you might try Red Line Shockproof gear oil. It is a bit on the thick side an may quiet things down.
