New Suzuki LT185

Thats new to me!!!! It is about a 1984 185CC. I just got it so my grandson can ride when he comes to visit. When I was looking at it the first time it looked a lot smaller than a 185 as I was thinking it was about a 100cc but it turned out to be a 185. It runs well but it is a little hard shifting which is OK as the little guy will be only allowed to use first gear for awhile. My question is what is the shifting pattern on these machines all up or 1 down and the rest up. I haven't been able to figure it out yet(very hard to shift) and was wanting some help from anyone that may have owned one of these.
Thanks for helping

I would guess that it is all up, Have you tried adjusting the shifter? Maybe it is binding on you somehow. I haven't owned one and I was only 8 years old when it was produced, LMAO, just trying to give you some suggestions.

Thanks TUBBYTUBB I took it out for a couple of rides myself before the grandson gets here and I think I figured it out. It is 1 up for first and the next down is neutral and then 2 more down for second and third. I have never owned one myself so it is going to be a learning curve and I hope not to steep. It shifts not to bad when running. I guess when it was sitting still and running it didn't like to shift into the next gears thats what my problem was. I think I my like this ATV-ing.
