The not being able to get it into second when stopped may be an issue...are you talking as an UPshift or DOWNshift? As a downshift, that is a problem. As for the upshift part, I see no reason why you shouldn't be able to shift up into second at a stop, but I haven't tried it.
Transmission repair will be expensive so keep that in mind.
With that, I'd offer them $1,500 MAX for this bike.
I have come to terms with the possibility of dying while riding, life has a 100% death rate. I would rather live having fun and end up dead in a motorcycle crash than never do anything fun because it's dangerous and I might get killed. No one makes it out alive anyway. - From a friend on another forum, used with his permission.
