Loose gearshift feel

I was changing down while coming to a stop yesterday. My gearshift has always felt tight & precise.

All of a sudden it now feels fairly loose & really light and easy to shift up or down. All six gears are still working ok, Im just a little concerned about the sudden change in shift feel.

I know parts "wear in" over time but this happened between two sets of traffic lights - firm to loose feel in less than a kilometre.

Anybody have any ideas? Should I be concerned?

First service (1600km) will be very soon. I will mention it when it take in in to the dealer.

wow, that's kinda scary!

it hasn't happened to mine, but it sure sounds like something changed.
hopefully it wont be serious.

keep us updated when you find out more, please.
thanks for the post.
