    Dear all,

    I had a wierd behaviour of my Triumph SPeed Triple's gearbox. The Triple
    brand new ~500 miles driven (it is 2003 model).

    After accelerating gently from stop light I am able to switch the gear
    from 1 to 2. But after gear 2 it won't change to higher gears.
    The gear change padel has also different feeling indicating there is no
    more gear left in the box.
    Not after I did go through all the gear in the next stop lights, when I
    was moving very slowly forward.

    The behaviour did re-occur after couple of miles driving, and it did
    disappear with same manouver i.e. changing up and down while moving very
    slowly forward and pulling the clutch.

    I would appreciat any comments whether this kind of behaviour is
    unnormal and would lead into a more serious problems with the gearbox.

    Best Regards,
    Pez, a newbie Speed Triple driver
