  2. Motorcycle Repair
    I've got a 1971 Suzuki TS185 I bought from a scrapyard a few years back. It took me a while but I've finally got it up and running. The major issue is that it desn't seem to be shifting up.

    Hello, I was wondering about down shifting. Upshifting seems fine for me. But when i read about down shifting it sounds too complicated. Lets say im going 80 km/h and a red light comes up can i just stop the bike fully, then shift down or do I have to shift down while stoping.
