When I first had the bike, changing gears from 1st to second or vice verse and or find neutral was terrible.
Also the others gears werenít easy to find.
My problem was riding big boxers before. The didnít need high revs by changing gears.
This 310 needs more revs to change gears more easily and it takes some time to get the gearbox smoother. In my case it is much better now and I put on appr. 7500 kmís.
Most of the time I use the clutch but Iím able to change gears without the clutch, especially when I am going up fast through the gears. It is even possible to downshift without the clutch. You need some practice and develope a good feeling with your bike. Training training training 😇.
I know (now) when bmw presented the 310 some bikes that where test ridden by the press had problems with shifting gears. Some bikes didnít. Question is if bmw had listened to the press riders ..........
At this moment iím Quite happy about how the bike handles and shifts. Give it some time, try to feel the bike (what it likes) and Ďlistení. If, just before the warranty is over, you are not happy, bring it back !
