anyone else encounter a 865cc gearbox that sometimes makes a crunch when engaging and other times its quiet and also somtimes it makes a second crunch after gear is engaged and when letting clutch out as if it has just taken up a lot of slack, i have new chain sprockets and rubbers in the rear wheel, this noise is deffo from the gearbox, any help would be appreciated, thanks

When I got my 08 America I commented to the dealer that the gears seemed sticky. I had to hit them pretty hard to get it to shift. And they said "Triumphs have a long break in period for the gearbox. Usually 3000 miles." So if you have low miles on it, maybe, hopefully, it's just a breaking in issue.
