ES shifting hard - not smooth

Hey, my ES doesn't like to shift while accelerating too smoothly. What's up with that. I'll start off in 1st, than 2nd hits ok, but 3rd can not engage until I'm off the gas awhile and I might have to jam on the up arrow a couple of times, and so-on with 4th and 5th. Your thoughts? Is that normal? This machine is new to me and I'm trying to figure it out. Thanks guys.

Mine does the same thing sometimes. But mine has trouble shifting from 1st to 2nd. I guess I'm having the same problem as you. I don't know the solution to this problem.
No, I will look at my trusty manual and see if that is the problem. I went riding this weekend and it got better. Must be the amsoil working its way into the system.
