G310R Clutch and Shifter Problem

Iím having trouble with my clutch and shifter for the past 3 days. Sometimes I'm unable to shift down from 3rd gear slowing down to a stop. had to resort using the kill switch, pump the clutch lever to have the shifter working again. it's been happening frequently. Also; six months I owned this bike and I'm still having trouble finding that god **** neutral. Am I the only one?

I have a combined 32 hours of Basic and Intermediate training but never experienced a hard time finding neutral on any of my riding school's trainer bikes. TVS should issue a TSB for this. It's really getting on my nerve. Imagine this happening on a curve shifting down relying for that engine break.

And I was just starting to really like this bike, then this happened.

I'm not a clutch rider and don't dump the clutch at gears. Already checked my clutch lever and cable for play. Can't seem to find problems with it and still under tolerance level.

Itís a non hydrolic clutch system so Iím not sure how ďpumpingĒ the lever helps? Seems like the synchronizers in the transmission maybe going bad which should be under warranty. No problem finding neutral or shifting on my G310R btw.

Mine is tight finding neutral from 1st when cold and is no problem when warm.

I'd take it back to the dealer and see what is going on.

Definitely a malfunctioning transmission. I've never had problems shifting with the bike, not even on my first kilometers; heck I even find it very responsive even.

The shifter was really stiff and won't budge if it happens. I'll look for some time to bring it back to service. I was told to blip the throttle while shifting gears, I'll try to adopt it on my riding behavior.

Take it into the dealer ASAP. Nothing worse than delaying and them saying you caused more damage due to negligence for not bringing it in sooner.

Just to clarify, is this while on the move or when on a stop? The shifter can be weird if you try to upshift/downshift on a complete stop.

Make sure you check your chain tension, the wrong amount of tension can cause problems when changing gears.

If you're trying to down shift more than one gear without letting out the clutch lever it will do this. I find when this happens if you let out on the clutch lever a little until you feel the bike starting to try to move forward and then pull the clutch lever back in you can down shift. This has happened a few times when I tried to down shift quickly without letting out the clutch lever between each gear. Hope this helps.
