Question 2002 Quest Shifting Problems

I posted this on an existing thread but figured I would also start my own since it's a bit of a different situation from the other thread.

I recently picked up a '02 Quest 650 xt and it is very hard to shift between gears. I read that some have had this issue and resolved it by lowering the idle. So I did this but problem is at the same time I put a new OEM belt and now it's even worst. I've dropped the idle to the point of almost stalling but it's still hard to shift.

Also with the new belt it now wants to creep ahead when in gear without touching the throttle. I'm assuming the clutch is not releasing the belt completely, which would also contribute to the shifting problems.

Will this go away as the belt gets broken in or should I be adjusting the clutch? and how?

Sounds like this may be a wrong belt. I'm not saying got the wrong one, but you may want to see if the Belt and the package it came in match, and that the belt is actually the correct one. Other than that, it may be a worn shift drum, or shift fork, or sync problem with the shift forks. Also, be sure that the choke is not on, that could cause the engine to want to run high enough to engage.
I've offered this up to others, but if you think a service manual may help I can send it to you if you are comfortible providing your email address. Just send me a private message and I would be happy to help.
