Ped Shifting

My 2000 Tomos Sprint is not shifting into 2nd gear when it should. It red-lines for a while then shifts. It's delayed for around 10 seconds. What is causing this and how can I fix it?

Re: Ped Shifting

Do you have the right level of fluid in your transmission? That can cause some odd behavior sometimes.

Re: Ped Shifting

too much or too little?

Too much is generally what would cause a shifting problem.

Manual calls for 220cc's of Dexron type III ATF, but some folks prefer 10w30 Motor oil.

There's a level check screw on the side of the transmission, it's a large flathead, with a paper washer under it and easy enough to find.
