I've excepted the notchiness as just part of the transmission. It doesnt effect anything really, and you get used to it. Adding a Blowfish racing bracket has eliminated the 1st gear lockout I would occasionally get. I have never experienced the high rpm lockout.

After trying all of the best fixes, (SS line, different fluids, Barton Shifter, new clutch, 2 release bearings) I am finally giving up and purchasing a Calimer Stage 2 transmission. That trans is rattling when in neutral and is hard going into 3rd every time. No shifting above 6K rpm. I also have a new MGW shifter and McLeod RST clutch waiting to go along with the trans. My is an early 2011 build which has proven to be the most problematic of all the MT82's.

Good luck with the upgrade and please report back on what you think of the new trains and clutch. Feedback really helps a lot of us make decisions. Thanks

I installed the Calimer Stage 1 transmission along with the new shifter and clutch. What a difference. The transmission is butter smooth and not hang ups going up or down. The MGW race spec shifter is an improvement over my 1st generation Barton, very smooth and short throws. I have not pushed the envelope with either yet as I was having issues with the new clutch and flywheel. Developed vibration after install and after 3 trips to 2 different transmission shops and a different clutch ( replaced the RST with a McLeod Extreme) the second shop discovered the lightweight Mcleod was the cause of the vibration. The original flywheel was still in good condition so we put it back in.
