Not so much the gears, is it hard to shift into all of the gears? Most likly it could be your shift fork is gone and when it heats up it warps, or your syncro mesh could be shot, hard to say without seeing what it is doing.


sometimes i can get in into 2nd or 3rd usually only happens once every week and a half tho
