  1. Looks like the forum comes through again! Flushed the clutch fluid and it immediately seems much better. I just ran to the gas station and back but it shifted so smooth! Thanks for all your input.
  2. Hello all, End of last summer I began noticing the shifting on my 2010 VFR 1200 was getting a little more clunky, particularly between first and second gear. I also had more instances where I ended up in neutral when trying to shift into second. I was due for an oil change, and once clean oil went in it was just fine again. Fired up this spring and after about a thousand miles I am noticing the same thing. It's not as if the gears are grinding and short of hitting neutral a little more often, I don't have problems shifting gears. It is just noticeably more clunky, and every now and then I can actually feel the clunk/shift through the clutch lever. Local shop suggested new clutch fluid, which I will definitely try when I have a chance. Bike has about 27,000 miles on it and I wouldn't be surprised if it was the original fluid still. Looking around the internet it looks like a failing master cylinder could create clunky shifting? It may just be the age of the bike, but I just want to make sure it's not something else that is needing attention. Just wanted to get every one's opinion and thoughts on the situation. Has anyone else seen anything similar? Thanks in advance.
