Default Gear issue with Jimny

The transfer of the gear in my 2002 Jimny is not soft, after changing the clutch and clutch cable the transfer is much better but the problem was not solved.
The main problem is transferring to the second gear after few hours of parking.
Any suggestions?

Thanks

Did you change the throw-out bearing at the same time? Did you notice a rough surface on the input shaft when changing out the throw-out bearing?

Both of these things can cause a rough pedal.

The problem is not rough pedal but hard gear engagement,
I changed the throw-out bearing and the input shaft surface is OK.
It seems to me that something is broken in the gear.

Ok, so the problem is shifting it into gear.
1- Is it grinding as you try to shift? Does it feel as if the pedal is not dissengaging the clutch all the way?
-pedal tension needs to be adjusted

2- Or does it feel like the the pedal has made it all the way through its arc (completely dissengaging the clutch) but you still feel grinding at the stick?
-the synchro in the trans may be worn out at the 2nd gear.

If this trans has never been rebuilt, it may be time to consider it. If you do, get the kit with the synchros and swap it all out. It ony takes an afternoon, a clear work table, some hand tools and a decent set of gear pullers.
Here is something I put together to show how to do it.
Tranny Rebuild

Excellent article. My tranny is fine but it is good to see that the info is there in a very user friendly format.

what type of gear lube are you running? you may be able to put off the rebuild by using a synthetic gear lube or synchomesh addative.. this wont fix you're problem but it will buy some time.

Thanks PP.
On the synthetic, make sure to watch for leaks as a synthetic will seep past an old (hardened) seal. I use Amsoil extreme gear in both of mine, but that change happened after a total rebuild. At the price of the Amsoil, you don't want it leaving through a leak.

Thanks for the guide, its fantastic, looks like the sychro should be changed.
Is the Samurai and Jimny gears are identical?

I am using the one that recommended by Suzuki, its 80W-90.
Which synthetic oil from which company can you recommend?

amsoil is probably the the best but expensive. you can use any 75/90 synthetic.. quakerstate etc.. or gm sells a sychromesh addative, i haven't been able to find it at local parts stores, but it works really well..
