Re: nv4500 still shifts hard
Hey, glad to hear that you finally got it in! I had that exact problem with mine for the first week or so. I had to readjust the clutch 2-3 times in the first month (keep in mind I have a mechanical linkage/clutch).
It would be real hard to get into 1st gear, a little less in second, and not at all in 3rd. I could put it into 3rd, and then go to 1st with no problems what so-ever.
Basically, I had to move the clutch adjuster out (like you would if the clutch were wearing) by 3-4 turns per adjustment. Not sure how you do that with a hydro clutch, but I'm sure there is an analogous adjustment.
