Ive had my Foreman since 04, but just wondering how hard it should shift? should it be smooth as silk or a little clunky? just wondering, because mine has been a little clunky from 1st to 3rd and then smoother from 3 to 5th. any suggestions would be most appreciated!

have you tried adjusting the clutch? The adjustor is located on the front cover of the motor above the front driveshaft. Here is an old post by HM for adjusting it.

Loosen the clutch adjusting screw lock nut. Slowly turn the adjusting screw counterclockwise until resistance is felt. Then turn the adjusting screw clockwise 1/4 turn, and tighten the lock nut to the
specified torque.
TORQUE: 22 N-m (2.2 kgf-m, 16 lb.ft)
After adjustment, start the engine and check for proper clutch operation.
yeah thats in the manual, and have tried that, but still seems clunky. i turned it clockwise a 1/4 turn from stock settings and now seems better.
