I was having more difficulty finding neutral after an oil change. It did not seem to happen immediately after the oil change but seemed to build up slowly.

The only thing I changed was the amount of oil. Instead of 2/3 to upper max line and I went exactly to it.

So, I bled about 100-150cc from the filler opening with a hose, mouth suction and height differential. Let it drip bleed.

Now, it's back to normal. If normal is the occasional false neutral between 5/6. That difference seems to need a firmer shift as I am normally a light shifter.

I have been thinking about the Factory Pro kit available on Desmo Times site, since he provides detailed photographic directions.

Anyone try this on the ST3s?

Been around 100 miles since I lowered the oil level to down to 2/3 of max height line, but I am not so certain now that the neutral is any easier to find. I can find neutral but not as easy pre-WCM, but will look at clutch lever adjustment next.
