Gearbox issue
« on: April 02, 2019, 10:53:40 AM »
Hi People, I'm new to the group so first off - Hello Everybody. I've just become proud owner of 2017 Explorer XCA and I've discovered the bike has an issue; under hard acceleration in 2nd it appears to 'jump' at peak torque, producing a loud and distinct clunk - like there is a tooth missing on one of the gears. Its still under warranty and has now gone to Blade Swindon for them to check it out. Anybody else experienced this?

Sorry, that's very cruel of us. Just use the search tool with the word Gearbox.  :431: You're so cruel Icy! :005:
