    3rd gear problems

    Any one having problems w/ 3rd gear? Im having problems W/ 3rd. Its jams up
    and I have to force it in but once I get it in and let go of the clutch it does not
    grab, the RPMs just shoot up and my Reverse lights come on for a second. This only happens when Im racing. Does any body have the same Problem?

    If you had your reverse lights come on it should tell you something = you missed the 3rd gate and crashed reverse( hence the lights comming on). The other 3rd issues could be the need for the drill mod( I suspect you have not done it) and the known 3/4 fork wear issues( you need an iron 3/4 fork). All of these issues are well documented ...search is your friend.
