Oh also it's a little clunky or grinding going into gear any ideas? I have yet to replace the gear oil since I bought it, the revs don't sound to high when it starts to go into gear

check the gear oil and see if its ok. It shouldn't be creamy in colour (internal seals gone) but black or clear is fine- black obviously means you could do with new gear oil though.
