Under heavy acceleration from 2nd to 3rd gear my bike doesnt seem to want to shift more often than it wants to. I was wondering if anyone else expirenced similar problems and possible fixes. Then again maybe its just me.

In theory you are supposed to ease off the throttle when shifting. Maybe your shifter needs to be adjusted down. This helped me to engage the gears better. No more miss shifts.

I too had some missed up shifts. Adjusting the shift lever down about a quarter inch solved them and I haven't missed one since. Part of it was some new boots I made with a stiffer ankle protection than my old ones.

My issue was the clutch cable stretched and the shift was hard under accel becuase the clutch was not fully disengaged. I adjusted the clutch cable and alls well that ends well!

Wow. Great solution guys. I was also having some missed upshifts. I dropped the shifter and my shifting issues went away.
