Hi all, I have a 2003 Blast with 4000 miles. When I put in into first gear and let out the clutch the bike engages the trans and rolls about a foot or so then jumps like the clutch was pulled in and quickly released. It will also do this if I let off the throttle and roll it on while in first without touching the clutch. It almost feels like the belt jumped some teeth. The belt seems ok, the clutch cable has been replaced. I have taken the clutch apart to inspect it and all seems ok. The shift plate is ok. And the primary chain was adjusted properly as the clutch was also. Just wondering if anyone else had this problem before I take the cases apart to inspect the trans. Thanks for your help.
My 2000 C did something similar, intermittently, and traced it back to grooves worn on the inside of the clutch basket.

That sounds like a pain. lol is it bad for the bike to continue riding and just take it easy in first gear. I do not feel the symptoms in any other gear. I just bought the bike as a commuter for work and back.
