Title: Crunch into first
Post by: coater87 on 08.01. 2019 09:40
 Talking to other bike owners it seems most British bikes crunch into first gear when rolling.

 Mine will easily slip into first and neutral at a stand still, but it does crunch into first at anything over a couple miles per hour, and below that it will bang into first.

 Is this a common trait, or just a sign of 60 year old parts?

You are failing to match RPM to MPH.
