Actually, when I first took the box out this morning it felt notchy going into 3rd but no grind. Once she had a few miles that when I was getting a grind into 3rd. So, I would shift into 4th and skip 3rd if I could.
Just drained her and I'm going to wait a bit with a brewski. Then fill back up and see what happens. Royal Purple called me back and said they would compensate me for my "issues", and they had another report of the same situation. Additionally, O-Reilly auto parts said to bring the Royal back for a full refund and they would send it back to Royal for analysis.
